Chalk Talk – Episode 7: In-Season Training 

You put so much energy and effort into your off-season training program, but when the season comes weight training practically disappears. There is only so much time in your schedule, and getting your team to the weight room is a weekly challenge. 

We talk about why ‘In Season Lifts’ should be considered PART of practice, not INSTEAD of practice. Find out why in-season lifts are so important and how we suggest implementing them at the high school level.
