Long term… yes. Getting stronger should be the number 1 goal of your off season training (just as it is for the vast majority of Games Athletes these days).
Short term (like the 8 weeks leading up to competition)… no. You’ll need to up the conditioning (we can help with that too) to get in shape to compete. We have come out with a program called “Road To Regionals” that will be focused on getting you ready to compete in the Open and Regionals when the time is appropriate. You are able to switch over any time you like.
