Tis the season to plan your off-season program. Maybe you started today, or you’re back at it the first week of January. IMFB has a lot of suggestions for you to improve your speed, agility, and power while limiting injuries and increasing flexibility.
We even have podcasts on the topic! Click here to listen
IMFB readers check out our second install which covers unilateral workouts. Like with any of our installs- in addition to free content like articles (that include screenshots and other material) and a podcast on the topic, you can become a Patreon exclusive member for $5 per month and get access to our unilateral workout video which includes 13 minutes of lifts with voiceovers and commentary explaining the benefits and offering coaching points for each of the 10 lifts.
In the heat of a new off-season schedule, we can take a look at the overall system, the core exercises, and the set-up of a small school and how to make the most from your low budget weight room.
Sample of a workout in the June phase of our off-season program.
We ended our season November 1st with a 49-30 victory over a conference opponent on our home field. Since then, we have given ourselves as a coaching staff and our players five weeks off to recuperate after a long season where 19 of our 33 players logged the majority of the minutes, including a few 8th graders that started both ways. Even though many of our players are off playing basketball, we decided to get back in the weight room for two weeks before the holiday break to get our football-only kids back in shape.
At this point in the off-season (2 weeks) we’ve started to incorporate more actual weight versus only using body weight with our more veteran lifters. Our green lifters are still sticking to body weight as we get them primed and ready to convert to the hypertrophy phase.
