Program Description

Elastic strength development appears to be a specific domain that is often unnecessarily complex and made to seem overly complicated. As a result, athletes may not receive stimuli that satisfy the performance adaptations or injury remediation. The intent of this presentation is to provide tangible frameworks, associated principles and heuristics to help navigate elastic strength implementation.


  • Describe the mechanisms that contribute to elastic strength development and the respective adaptations
  • Determine how a systematic process for elastic strength is devised throughout the athlete development continuum
  • Discuss requisite constituents that ensure athlete preparedness for elastic strength progressions
  • Dissect the relevant kinetics and kinematics of respective jump - landing maneuvers and how each may be manipulated
  • Develop heuristics of objective metrics in attempt to intervene on rate limiters for performance enhancement and reconditioning cases


Jarred Boyd DPT, MSAT, SCS, CSCS : Performance Therapist Memphis Grizzlies

Eric Schmit MS, CSCS Head Strength & Conditioning Coach : Memphis Grizzlies


Jarred Boyd is entering his 3rd  season with the Memphis Grizzlies as a Performance Physical Therapist. He is also a lecturer with the continuing education company R2P Academy, providing principles of reconditioning, pragmatic frameworks and practical progressions of exercise selection. As a performance physical therapist and lifelong critical thinker his ultimate goal is to guide return to sport and enhance potential by identifying opportunities to improve athlete resilience while simultaneously providing practical and influential frameworks for high performance decision making.

Eric Schmitt is entering his 3rd season with the Memphis Grizzlies as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach. He is a core member of an interdisciplinary team with the mission to provide unrivaled player care and unconditional player support in all areas of health and performance. His main responsibilities include the design and implementation of athletic development programs.
