    Strength and conditioning is one of the most important ingredients of any successful college football program. To help the Bearcats' student-athletes maximize their athletic potential, UC combines a modern, comprehensive facility with the latest techniques in strength training.

    No area of the athletics program is given greater attention and emphasis than strength and conditioning.

    With the opening of the Richard E. Lindner Athletics Center, the Bearcats utilize an 18,000-square foot strength training facility. The new center includes over $1 million in Hammer Strength equipment and a five-lane running track.

    The mirror-covered room is trimmed in red and black and features a tuflex floor made especially for weight training facilities. The modernized weight facility is highlighted by a quadraphonic sound system.

    Strength and conditioning is on-going. Programs are tailored to enable athletes to maintain strength during the peak physical demands of a playing season and increase strength through more extensive training during the off-season.
