Push through the discomfort, it will eventually subside and you’ll be a better person for having endured it. 👊 • • • Photo By: @mcteams3842 #paindonthurt
This is a bit of a more complex post, however, it’s seen too often, specifically in football. Strength or head coaches attempt to mindlessly prove their power or “teach mental toughness” by making the team do ridiculous loads of exercise (Multiple 400’s after a full day/week of practice and lifting.) then they blame the athletes for not training hard enough during the offseason when they pull a muscle. The game of football is drive phase, short explosive bursts involving primarily the ATP-PC energy system. The following graphs (2, 3) show that most plays (ball carrier) clock in a total distance of 14 yards (in all directions) and the average yard/play being 5 yards. The rest between each play is typically 20-35 seconds. With this in mind, it only makes logical sense to simulate actual game speed in training instead of assigning positional 150m time trials or some other ridiculous endurance effort, it’s illogical. Stimulating gameplay in training will ultimately produce more optimal results and more importantly, prevent overtraining and injury. TRAIN OPTIMALLY! 💥 • • • #football #nfl #collegefootball #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #optimaltraining #strengthcoach @ncaasports @nscaofficial #nsca @coach_m.rose @ravingose
Repeated effort! Effort is important but pointless without repetition. The true champions find a reason to press on, get their ass handed to them, learn, and repeat! Never fucking quit! 👊 • • • Photo by: @mcteams3842
In times of stress and struggle, detach!
