Athletic Training Exercises

In the weight room, don't be fooled by players who are always pumping iron. It takes a lot more than muscle mass to succeed in college sports. Players are becoming more agile, and developing superior game skills every year. It's true that you need to develop muscle strength, but your primary focus in weight training should be to use the equipment to help you develop along a natural range of motion. If your school doesn't have advanced machinery in the weight room, you're better off using free weights, and pulley systems that allow you to copy the same motions that you make when playing.

Track stars have revealed the secret to developing endurance and increasing running speed. Most athletes simply run out of breath long before they need to stop running, because they aren't able to get the oxygen into their muscles fast enough. As lactic acid builds up, muscle fatigue sets in and untrained players think they've reached a natural limit. Track stars, and well-coached basketball teams, on the other hand, train by sprinting short distances over and over. It's not fun, but it works. After a few months of training, the lungs begin to process oxygen more efficiently, and players find that they can run long distances non-stop, or break out a sprint for a longer period of time.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.
