Offseason Strength & Conditioning for Football

Posted in Training, Uncategorized with tags , , on April 3, 2011 by mboyle1959

I want to share some information with you that I think you might find valuable. It’s  a 50 minute video detailing the offseason strength and conditioning techniques used by 16 year NFL Strength Coach and current Purdue University Director of Sports Performance, Duane Carlisle.

There is no sales sales pitch here, the video is taken from a seminar he recently conducted on this very topic. You can watch the video whether you buy the product or not:

Your offseason training program lays the foundation for success as you prepare your team for the upcoming season.  As Duane says early in the video:

‘Methods change from time to time. But principles are timeless.’

Duane shows you exactly how he develops strong, fast, injury free athletes using methods rooted in timeless training principles.

Here are a few of the topics he covers:

-How to establish standards of excellence

-Why training must be specific to the demands of the position

-How to determine (and address) the individual needs of your athletes

-‘Gas Tank Theory’

– Combining strength and movement training

-7 Foundational Movements athletes must master before progressing in training

-Analysis of the specific strength & conditioning routines Duane uses with his athletes

The video provides a good overview. Duane breaks all of these topics down in a way that is easy to understand and apply, no matter which

age and skill level you work with. If you want your football players and program to make significant improvements take a look at this video immediately:

PS- I am a little biased. I coached Duane at BU in the early eighties and have followed his career closely. I think he is a great guy with a world of experience.
