Currently a collegiate strength coach at a 1AA school. Given a recent promotion to Interim Head, spring semi-pro football is not a possibility. 22 Teams and a staff of two… = weekends are for sleeping and quality time with my soon-to-be wife. Therefore training is the only release I will have. Team training begins at 6am and ends sometimes around 7:30-8:00 pm.
I am beginning this log to hold myself accountable and for others to tell me to get my shit together. Recent training programming, made modifications to Coach Joe Kenn’s Tier System to allow for 5/3/1 on the foundation exercises, other than hang/power cleans. A typical 3x5 Tier strength session lasts around 90 minutes, this is without any conditioning. I need to increase metabolic conditioning and reduce total time per session under the bar.
Solution: I am going to give the Juggernaut Method a trial run. I am including correctives and mobility work within the program. One day of upper conditioning (10 x :20 sec on/ :10 sec off Tabata) and Prowler work. Strength sessions should last approximately 45 minutes leaving the rest for conditioning and sprint work.
Current Training Maxes:
Back Squat: 450
Power Clean: 315
Military Press: 225
Deadlift: approx 500
*If I don’t bench 400 and squat 500 before 30 I consider myself a huge pusscake!
