I live in a pretty small southern town that isn’t exactly the paragon of fitness. Several of the high school coaches have approached me in the gym after watching me do power cleans and power snatches, and asked if I would be willing to help them with their strength training programs. The problem is I don’t really feel qualified. I’m ok with the lifts, but no expert by far.
I blew off the football coach for a number of reasons but I’m seriously considering helping the girl’s basketball coach. She is toying with the idea of adding weight training for her incoming 9th graders. Obviously, it would be best if they would seek the help of a professional but I don’t think they will pony up right now, especially for girls basketball. I’m thinking if they can implement a basic program with some appreciable benefits, they may be able to justify taking the next step.
Any advice or examples of basic off-season basketball training programs out there? I should mention that the high school gym has a pretty good setup. They have access to squat racks, a sled, big ol’ tractor tires, bumper plates and two Glute Ham Raise machines, and all the other usual stuff. Thanks for any help.
