As a Coach I feel it is important for us to evaluate the game, skill sets, etc. all the while being able to break down the movements that are performed in the sport and transfer those movement patterns to the weight room. I feel we as coaches in the past have been too two foot dominated ie; squats, deadlifts, cleans, etc. Don’t get me wrong those are the staple lifts and should be in EVERY training program but, I feel it is very important to balance out the athlete with unilateral work, and multi-plane work. Think about when your athlete runs, how many feet are touching the ground when in a full sprint? One, if any. So, training your athletes bilaterally, unilaterally, and in multiple plans will only help your athlete become more “game ready”. Start off easy with the split squats and focus on the front leg doing the majority of the work, core tight, and shoulders back, chest out. With bench jumps really focus on exploding back up the second your butt touches the bench, driving those arms to the sky, strong core, vision forward. Create a great day- Coach T
