Strength and Conditioning
The Hendricks Training Complex includes a 5,000-square foot weight room.
The model strength and conditioning program in the nation, Husker Power plays a major role in the continuing success of Nebraska Athletics. Nebraska's strength program was the first in the nation, and with 12 staff members is one of the most comprehensive strength and conditioning organizations in the country.
The Hendricks Training Complex features a new 5,000-square foot weightroom that is used by the men's basketball team on a daily basis. Along with the athletic training room and locker room, it is just steps away from the practice court.
Three Reasons for Success
The Husker Power Strength and Conditioning Program is geared for maximum improvement of performance on the basketball court. Each athlete receives his own individual computerized program each year.
The Husker Power staff has eight full-time strength and conditioning specialists and four interns. Basketball strength coach Tim Wilson is devoted to working directly with the men's basketball program to help Husker athletes prepare for a successful career on the court. Prior to working at Nebraska, he worked with the Milwaukee Bucks for 11 years and at the University of Oregon.
The Charles and Romona Myers Performance Center in the Osborne Athletic Complex is the finest all-around athletic facility in the nation, providing athletes with all the tools necessary to achieve at the highest level. Nebraska basketball players now have the Hendricks Training Complex, which opened in October of 2011. The facility's 5,000-square foot weight room features five transformer machines and a strength wall.
