ASAP not only stands for Athletic Strength And Power, it also is stands for the high intensity training of athletes using many modalities. Acceleration training, speed training, endurance training, agility and quickness training, explosive training..... interval training and functional training... it's all done at the ASAP sports performance centers. And of course, few facilities can match ASAP in the strength training and conditioning of athletes. Furthermore, functional biomechanics is employed to provide the athletes with increased balance and kinesthetic awareness. Bands and tubing, plyometrics, balance and stabilization training, medicine ball training. It's all part of The WORKOUT.
That's why athletes from many different sports can fit right in at THE WORKOUT.

We recently conducted one of our Saturday morning training sessions.
These sessions are usually sprinkled with a blend of professional
(NFL), College (Ohio State, Purdue, Boston College, Ball State, etc)
and High School athletes. Many of these athletes, both men and women,
are elite and in exceptional physical condition. And furthermore, they
are presently on a strength training and conditioning program that's
under the guidance of Ted Lambrinides PhD, Director of The Workout@Covington, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio in the shadows of Paul Brown Stadium.
The training sessions always begin with a Dynamic Warm-up. This would include many or all of the following exercises:
Half Speed 50yd jogs
Back Pedals 4x10yds
Three step walking Lunge w/twist 1x 15yds and return
3 step Squat grab back of ankles...repeat ....1x 15 yds and return
walking side lunge
walk 3 steps: hands to turf: alternate legs back as high as possible
we progress to the real deal.... the heart of the workout. The Interval
Training Segment. Don't eat very much at all prior to attending these
sessions and bring plenty of chilled sports drinks!!

Here's a sample of one of
the Saturday morning sessions at CovCath Football Stadium in Covington,
Kentucky. The training sessions are best done on a lined football field
and we prefer running on Field Turf, which is a very nice surface and
easy on the knees and other joints.
The training sessions have been designed to utilize the latest advances of exercise physiology..... and if performed regularly, can propel athletes to the next level.
On this particular training session we used what's known as Gassers. A "Gasser" is
performed by starting on the sideline, sprinting across the field and
touching the opposite sideline with your foot...then returning to the
original sideline, touch that line with your foot and then repeat. One
Gasser is equal to approximately 213yds of building speed and then
decelerating. A Half Gasser is a sprint across the field and then back.
6x full gassers (1280yds)
9x half gassers (960yds)
10x 10yd backward runs (100yds)
3x 200 yd shuttles (down the field and back) 60 secs till next shuttle starts (600yds)
The Head Strength Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Mark Asanovich, made a visit to The Workout at Covington. Also making the trip was assistant strength coach Les Ebert who, according to Asanovich, is destined to be a head strength coach in the NFL one day. Both coaches were very impressed with the ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power training center located in Covington, Kentucky....... just minutes from downtown Cincinnati. Coach Asanovich and ASAP Director Ted Lambrinides were able to discuss the preparation and process used by ASAP to get prospects ready for the NFL Combine. Asanovich and Ebert were en route to Indianapolis for the annual event where college football players are invited for an an all encompassing evaluation, both physical and psychological. Lambrinides and Asanovich also reviewed training program design and how best to prepare prospective athletes for the NFL Combine before the three headed to Indianapolis.
