Programming your off-season program

Our weight program is designed around two extremely complex lifts: the power clean and the barbell snatch. Even if we never power clean or barbell snatch, that’s still the emphasis behind the way we program our Athletic Performance Program. We can do the parts that sum the whole of the two lifts and become better athletes in the process.

Strength: 10 Unilateral Lifts

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 only 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 a little 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, not a body builder or beach body stud (of which I’m neither).
