STAY STRONG IN SEASON

In season training makes the difference in how you finish your season. For the most part everyone trains hard in the off-season and comes in ready to compete, the ones that don’t… well those are the athletes on your highlight film. At the half way mark of the season is where you see the difference in the teams and athletes that keep on top of their in season training and maintenance. Around weeks 5-7 you see a drop off in mood, strength and recovery in athletes that just try to coast by the season with what they did in the off season. The biggest in-season issues we see are Shoulders and lower backs which become an excuse to train even less. These two areas take a beating through the season and without a proper maintenance protocol your off-season work will disappear like your playoff chances. Go into your season strong and stay strong  with consistent in-season workouts and maintenance protocols.
