Pre-Season Work and Open Track

Attention all BK Athletes

Bishop Kearney will be hosting conditioning workouts in the weight room on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11am -12:30pm starting July 5, 2016. I highly recommend taking advantage of at least one of these workouts each week over the summer.

Additionally, Coach Rick Russotti will be offering "Open Track" sessions on Thursday evenings from 4:30-5:30 beginning July 7th. Coach Sloan and Coach Jenna will be joining us as well. We will meet on the track. These sessions are designed to improve the running form and endurance of any athlete, for any sport and will include coaching on the following:

  • Run form and introductory running technique
  • Static stretching
  • Dynamic warm up
  • Pacing and split timing 
  • General conditioning for endurance athletes 
  • Core conditioning
  • General track running
  • General cross country running
We will include a brief educational talk in each session:
  • General health
  • Nutrition and hydration
  • Anatomy for the endurance athlete
  • Footwear and gear
Regardless of your sport, these sessions will help improve your endurance, stamina, and cardiovascular fitness level. Open Track is available to all BK athletes. 

We will be outside for these workouts - please dress according to the weather. You must bring a water bottle. 

Coach Russotti is a Registered Nurse and Certified Personal Trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine and is also a Certified Track and Field Coach with United States Track & Field as well as an Accredited Interscholastic Coach with the National Federation of High School Associations.
