We have programs on sale this week — and you can’t get faster if you don’t get stronger.
You can’t jump higher or farther if you don’t get stronger.
Sure you can make improvements from cleaning up mechanics, posture and technique. But there’s a very low glass ceiling if that’s where you spend all of your coaching or training time.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my years working with high school and middle school kids, you don’t have to understand rocket science to make significant improvements to their strength and power.
But some exercises *are* better than others. Many of the most effective exercises are best taught in a *specific* way. And there should be a *clear* rhyme and reason to which exercises you use after certain types of workouts and which you *shouldn’t* use.
So here are the strength and power development resources we have on sale this week, in the order I think you and your athletes would be best served if you can only get one:
The ‘Weight Training’ DVD does a great job at teaching the lifts, especially the Olympic Lifts. And Boo Schexnayder also does a great job of explaining how to progress your exercise selection through the entire season, whether you work with high school kids or Olympians.
Complete Olympic teaches more progressions for more different types of Olympic Lifts, but Boo’s covers more programming.
And I *love* the ‘Exercises for Sports Performance DVD’ because there are few things I dislike about coaching more than writing warm up routines, circuits, etc.
This DVD lays all the different types of exercise categories out, tells you the names of the drills and gives you demos. If you know you want to do a multi-throw circuit, just pick one from the list, cut and paste it into your program. There are over 400 exercises and 40 different circuits.
Seriously, it’s a real time saver.
No matter which program/s you decide, good luck this season.
