A shirt to match the ultimate guide for athletes and coaches - Conjugate U: The Proven and Practical Guide for Using the Conjugate Method with Athletes by Nate Harvey

This book is a testament to the validity, effectiveness, and success of using the Conjugate Method with athletes of multiple diciplines.  

Nate Harvey, MS, CSCS, and Executive Equipment Specialist for elitefts began his quest for strength in a similar fashion to most of us - training with early weight equipment in the basement in our pre-teen and teenage years.  Making his way to playing college football, Nate experimented with almost every program known to man - searching for THE ONE program that took his development to the top.  Becoming obsessed with the great Mike Alstott led him to the discovery of Louie Simmons, our own founder, Dave Tate...and naturally, the Conjugate Method.  

From Nate:

"Over the course of 18 years I have witnessed the system outperform virtually all types of periodization and schemes. It’s very hard to objectively evaluate a strength and conditioning system, I get that. One of the indicators that spoke very loudly to me was when we started getting athletes achieving things athletically that, by all previous indicators, shouldn’t be doing.

The last school I used this system at was in it’s infancy of competing at the Division I level, not even 15 years. Subtract the ten years of my time there and you have 5 years as a Division I program when we started to implement the system. When you are as young as we were, you are not getting top tier athletes. After about a year of the system being in place, we were starting to see some surprising performances and some eyebrows were starting to raise, this was another moment of validation and reassurance that we were on to something big. Fast forward 10 years later, and we had the following results form a very young lower level DI school using the Conjugate Method:

  • First and only Football Conference champions 
  • First Division I National Champion (Men’s Shot Put)
  • 3 Basketball Conference Championships in one calendar year (2 for the Men, 1 for the Women). Prior to this time, neither team had won a conference title. The Women also had the lowest injury rate in the athletic department the year they won. This was when we were able to run the system in its truest form without outside meddling. 
  • Men’s shot putters have won 7 of the last 8 indoor track and field Conference Titles and 8 of the last 8 outdoor track and field titles
  • Men’s Swimming and Diving won their first ever Conference Title
  • 8 of the schools 12 total All-Americans
  • 18 Olympic Trials Qualifiers (shot put, swimming diving), two of those qualified for the final round in their sport 
  • Over 50 individual Conference Champions (Track and field, swimming, wrestling and diving)
  • 16 individual National Qualifiers
  • Over 75 Regional Qualifiers 
  • Substantially decreased injury rates

Despite all of these accomplishments we had athletes leave the system either by their own accord or were forced to by their coach, NOT ONE TIME did their performance improve after leaving the system. Injuries typically increased after leaving the system as well. On the flip, side nearly every time an athlete came and trained Conjugate after leaving another training system, their performance improved and their injuries decreased. Sports that trained in the Conjugate system included:

  • Men’s and Women’s Track and Field - Women’s Soccer
  • Men’s and Women’s Basketball - Women’s Crew
  • Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving - Women’s Volleyball
  • Men’s and Women’s Cross Country - Women’s Tennis
  • Baseball
  • Softball
  • Wrestling

In addition to all these indicators, was the overwhelming feedback from our athletes. The ones who trained with it then had to go put their asses on the line told us, this method was a major factor in their success. "
