Strength & Conditioning Program

As MSU's Strength & Conditioning Program, we are responsible for the weight training, conditioning and injury rehabilitation of all student athletes at Morehead State. Due to the high volume of traffic we receive on a daily basis, our equipment has experienced high levels of wear and tear. In some cases, our equipment needs to be replaced on a semester to semester basis -- at the very least, on a yearly basis. 

On the right hand side of this page, you will see a listing of specific equipment we are in need of -- as well as description of how each piece is used in our program. All of the equipment listed will help put our athletes in a better position for success and staying healthy. 

The Strength & Conditioning Program is committed to the success and health of our student athletes. Your support will ensure we can continue to serve our students in the best possible way and give them the skills they need to excel as Eagles. 

Thank you for your generosity!

Stretch Bands

Purchase a pair of stretch bands for a student athlete. Stretch bands are used on a daily basis to aid in the prevention of knee and shoulder injuries. Because these are essentially huge rubber bands, their frequent use results in the need for replacements every few months.



Purchase 48 post-workout protein shakes for a student athlete. This ensures our athletes can refuel properly after an intense session.


Weighted Vest

Purchase a new weighted vest. Adding a weighted vest to workouts is an excellent way to build core strength while adding an additional degree of difficulty to all movements. They're also effective tools in the early stages of knee surgery rehab.


Trap Bar

Purchase a new trap bar. Excellent for dead lift work, trap bars greatly reduce an athlete's susceptibility to injury by putting their body in a more advantageous position.


Swiss Press Bar

Purchase a new swiss press bar ("football bar"). An excellent tool for all overhead athletes (baseball, softball, volleyball, quarterbacks), a swiss bar naturally puts hands and elbows in a very good position, which greatly reduces stress on the shoulders. It's also a great tool for offensive and defensive linemen in football, as it can simulate the hand positioning for blocking and defensive line techniques used during every play.


Safety Squat Bar

Purchase a new safety squat bar. An excellent squat bar for all overhead athletes (baseball, softball, volleyball, quarterbacks), it takes stress off the shoulders and elbows and greatly reduces wear and tear on those joints. It's also a great tool for athletes rehabbing upper body (especially shoulder) injuries.
