I am 24 years old. I am a senior and in my last year of football. I have had serveral injuries and want to do everything I can to stay healthy my last year. As many know, college strength coaches can easily develop programs that overtrain their athletes because they think “more is always better”.
In my situation, since I have been training in that way for so long and have had a lot of injuries, my body nor my mind can take that punishment this year unless I have some help. I am tired of feeling like crap and training in way that never improves my performance. I work with a “Westside” trainer a lot like Joe De Franco whenever I get a chance but this Summer I have to be with my strength coach. Can you guys offer me some advice on what you would use? My main priority is recovery. My major is Kinisiology so I have used everything I have learned but nothing has worked as far as helping me recover and staying healthy without injury. I dont care about getting tested and want help for the “right” reasons. Something conservitive hopefully.
