“This is where it all started.” – Boyd Epley

What was sport before carefully planned strength and conditioning programs existed? What was it like when the only athletes you saw in the weight room were the injured ones? Few people remember the days when training for any sport was comprised of little more than running long distance. But Boyd Epley not only remembers it vividly, but he was part of a pioneering few who actually reformed this broken system. He’s a god at the University of Nebraska and a founder of the NSCA.

Soon, universities the nation over would be attempting to replicate his program.
