Spring is Coming

Spring ball less than 12 weeks away.  Preparing for the challenge is what we’re up to.  Good to see so many in Spring sports and getting consistent weight room presence from those of you who are not. Embed from Getty Images “Let your effort be louder than your mouth” Jeremy Boone Athlete by Design

Summer Cycles

Spring ball complete for SHS football.  Great week of effort and learning for the Panthers in my opinion.  More refining in a bit with summer camp and Wenatchee camp.  Neither very far off. This makes the few weeks we have between now and those football camps as well as the only few weeks after before the…

From Here to There Fast

Just a few weeks away from beginning our Spring speed sessions.  It’s all about getting from here to there, faster. In the weight room I’ve heard so many ideas, theories, and guesses at what is the key to speed and agility.  Usually one piece or another is on the money, but rarely is there a…

Training Principles for Athletes

Whether high school athlete or occupational athlete there are certain principles that must be followed for optimal gains, long term health, and general physical preparedness.  Too often we as humans try to seek out the easy road or the magic fix because of it’s simplicity or our own laziness.

Day to Day Approach

It’s interesting and somewhat exciting to see continued injection of science into the training arena. Recent articles have highlighted Shawn Huls of the Philadelphia Eagles and how he is moving that program beyond the ‘bang and clang’ training model. Similarly, Erik Korem is interjecting science in to the training program of the Kentucky Wildcats. Through…

June Week 4

SHS workout program posted for this last week of June.  Tempo at 80 BPM push up test and max front squat are slated along with a full week of strength, agility, and speed work which is planned. Weight room hours are a bit up in the air still.  I’ll find a way to get it…

We’ve been collecting base assessment numbers the past couple months and now we are going to finish it off with a mock Spring Combine to get the remainder of our assessment results prior to summer.  It will help you see where you are today and have something to compare to come August. Max Rep Bench…
