In-Season Training for Football

Buy Alprazolam In Uk The first week of football practice here in Michigan came and went, and outside of an absolutely historic monsoon on Monday (6 inches of rain in 3 hours), the coaches and athletes have had some nice cool weather out on the field. This has been a really rewarding week for us at our facility as all of the coaches we worked with this summer have checked in with us and given us great reviews with how well prepared their athletes are for the upcoming season.

And that question was, “how do we keep this going in-season?” That’s an important question. After all, why did we train so hard all off-season and all summer, only to watch our progress dwindle away as the season wears on. Why should we be our weakest and slowest during the playoffs and championship season?

Alprazolam Tablets Online Purchase Unless you have a solid, practical plan, that is what ends up happening. Don’t blame yourself, it is tricky to find the right balance between training, practice, games, and recovery. That’s why, I want to take just a few minutes and lay some ground rules for in-season speed and strength work to help steer you in the right direction.

Football-Field-Ball-620x480 Rule #1. You don’t add new exercises or drills in-season. You should have a pretty solid repertoire of exercises and drills by now, don’t over think this. Use exercises your athletes are familiar with, and that they know how to load properly. In-season is not the time to introduce the hang clean to your kids, or to all of a sudden switch to a front squat. Even if you are sure that is the future of your program, you wait until the off-season to introduce it.

We have talked before about manipulating the volume and intensity of our work. Intensity is the % of max effort required. Like a max effort 10 yard sprint or a 1 rep max effort on the bench press. Volume is the amount of work, the total number of reps or sets. Like running 5 ten yard sprints, or doing 4 sets of 10 on the bench press.

Buy Alprazolam Online Usa When we are talking about maintaining our strength and speed, the intensity level still needs to be relatively high, but the volume doesn’t. Add high volume and heavy loads on top of games and practice and your athletes will get beat down. However, moderate loads and low volume lifts are a great way to keep the nervous system stimulated to stay strong without causing too much soreness and without spending two hours in the gym. To give you a few quick examples here is what a quick weight room program might look like to me.

1B. DB Plate Jumps – 3 x 3

2A. BB Bench Press – 3 x 2 at around 80%.
2B. DB Row – 3 x 5 e.

3B. DB Shrugs 2 x 15
3C. Band Face Pull 2 x 15

Monitoring our volume is especially true with the speed work. I think it is vitally important to do some acceleration work on the field in-season, like running some 10’s, doing some agility work, and doing some body weight explosive work. However, it is really easy to over-do it on these drills. Keep the intensity level up and shoot for quality, not quantity. You can’t treat everything like a conditioning test and still expect your athletes to feel and perform well. My general rule is 5 reps. 5 reps of any speed or explosive drill should be enough to maintain technique and power without being too fatiguing.

Sorry, anything beyond that is wasted time, wasted effort, and will probably have negative consequences. If you can’t get meaningful work in, in this time frame, then don’t bother. Your kids hustled all summer for you, but now they have classes and homework and family on top of games and practice. Don’t be a dictator. A smart coach can keep their kids strong without controlling their lives. Keeping it short and quick also allows for you to break into smaller groups and do more effective coaching.

If you are tight on time, and you are following rule #2 about monitoring volume, cutting out the bilateral squatting patterns is an easy fix. I think barbell squatting is a great way to maintain strength and power, however single leg patterns (like a RFE squat or step back lunge) can maintain strength and power while also lessening the spinal loading and maintaining flexibility in those tight hip flexors.

Rule #5. Train your neck. This should be a year round staple in the program. Whether its machine based or manual resistance, find the time to get at least 1-2 good sets of neck work in EVERY SINGLE WEEK. You will find lots of great resources on this site on how to teach and train the neck safely and effectively. Educate yourself and then help protect your kids.
