It’s time to get back out on the field again and improve the movement of our athletes. I’m a firm believer in using winter/spring to improve the movement of our players. With a typical split of 30-35 in the weight room and 30-35 on the field I would alternate between speed and agility days.

With a typical split of 30-35 in the weight room and 30-35 on the field I would alternate between speed and agility days. However, with the system we’re using (not my design) we’re on the field for 75 minutes and so I’ll incorporate Dale Baskett’s speed camp session 1-2 with my agility drills session 1.

As a football coach many times you become a de-facto strength and speed coach either because you’re the header, or because you’re the assistant on campus or maybe you just have enthusiasm for the topic and are willing to learn. In my experience, it was because I was because of all of these factors. Through my time lifting not only for my own benefit but for the benefit of my program, I’ve discovered that I need to trick my body while keeping myself engaged. Not just that but after clinics, reading books, and meeting with strength coaches I’ve discovered what is important in the strength world as a football coach.
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.
