I just spoke to a guy this morning about his nephew, who’s trying to play college football. We got on the subject of the training he has been doing at the H.I.T. Center. He said he meets with them 2 days per week and that their primary goal was to work on his speed and flexibility. Part of this included jumping around in a giant pit of sand. I told him I thought “sand” training was complete shite and asked if they did any strength training. His nephew was expected to do this on his own?!
My question is… have any of you seen this used in training before and is there any benefit to it whatsoever?
