In this video we get a behind the scenes look at the UIC Flames dryland training regimen. The UIC Flames are the athletic teams that represent the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Most recently the UIC Flames closed out their season with 3rd and 4th place finishes for their men’s and women’s programs respectively at the Horizon League Championships in Cleveland. The Horizon League is a 9-team collegiate athletic conference that competes in the mid-western United States. The group of schools and programs are NCAA Div 1.
Some of the highlights from the video, which features the 2011-2012 squad:
- Barbell cleans.
- Standing shoulder press.
- Pull ups. (including some impressive two-tiered pullups
- Various stretch cord exercises.
- Kettleball swings.
- And every athlete’s favorite: burpees!
[As always, make sure that you are using proper form when doing any type of resistance training. I feel I should mention this as there are a couple examples of poor posture and form within the video.]
