Should Athletes Train Year Round?

Sports Performance Training in Altamonte Springs - The Athlete Factory

Each year kids spend their off-seasons preparing to make an impact during their High School season kicks off. Unfortunately once the season begins, many of these same kids stop training and just focus on their practices and games. With this approach, strength levels decline rapidly, injury rates rise, while performance late in the season declines. We recommend athletes continue their training programs at a minimum of twice per week during their season. This will give them the opportunity to continue to increase strength and power levels, while keeping them healthy and producing big numbers on the field.


Our In Season programs consist of the following:


Strength Training: Our in season strength program focuses on continuing to increase our kids' strength levels through a progressive approach focused on functional exercises. There is a decrease in volume or the amount of work but an increase in intensity or the amount of weight. This leads to a focus on quality of work not quantity.


Injury Resistance: Much of our training in season is geared toward preventing common injuries that come with practices and games each week. By adjusting our programming to meet the rigorous demands of practice and games, and including more restorative exercises, helps keep our athletes healthy and able to play at peak performance.


Power Development: Our kids continue to develop power throughout their in season training program. Our power development program consists of a progressive plyometric programming as well as power development. Like our in season strength training program, volume is decreased but the intensity is kept high during the season.


Keeping the above in our In Season training program gives our athletes the best opportunity to produce results throughout the season while staying healthy in the process. Happy Training!
