High School Strength Certification will be released tomorrow.
And today, I wanted to hit you with a few key points for your consideration…
Barrington High School
3 of the numerous high schools I either worked at or consulted for from 2001 – 2009.
Without question the most fulfilling time of my career.
In those 8 years and with those 6,000+ high school athletes, I experienced more in the way of learning than at any other point in my 15 years inside this industry.
I learned that the situation (for multiple reasons) was never going to be ideal and that a practical system was necessary to optimally train these teenagers.
I learned that Strength Coaches at the High School level are counselors, role models and advocates as much as they are ‘Trainers’.
I learned that virtually all High School athletes present with the same few physical and movement-based dysfunctions – and how to fix them.
I learned that how much a High School athlete was lifting mattered very little in terms of their on-field ability – but certainly is a massive concern from an injury perspective.
More than anything, I learned the exact system necessary for working with High
School athletes and guaranteeing improvements in their performance:
Strength Training Technique, Functionality and Programming
Speed and Agility Mechanics or Sport Specificity
Mobility: Isolate and Integrate
Coaching the High School Athlete
Administration for the High School Strength Coach
Sample Programming for football, baseball, and basketball
And with the High School Strength Certification, you won’t be hearing just from me…
