When designing training programs, I have a different view point compared to most online trainers, in that I come from the sports performance world so what I choose to do will not only get you in shape and looking better, but it’s going to help you move better and will translate to what you enjoy doing.
When it comes to in-season training there are a few important principles to keep in mind to ensure that you're creating the best program that will allow your athletes to be successful in competition. While traditionally periodization models have been built around single competition sports such as weightlifting or track and field, team sports are unique due to there long seasons and having competitions each week and possibly multiple times a week. So how do we reconcile this with physical training? The answer may not be to use a traditional periodization approach, but rather one that looks at the schedule and adapts to the needs of the athletes.
