    With the load I usually start them with an unloaded barbell the first time we do it. If they demonstrate proficiency with the barbell they are allowed to move up, but I’ve never had anyone go over 95lbs. With the front squat grip I usually start them off 65lbs, obviously I never want to sacrifice form for technique especially with the young guys.

    There was an article posted on elitefts a few weeks ago about In-season Football Strength Training. Someone mentioned that they used a Gain (didn?t play), Retain (played some), and Recover (played a lot). Which I thought was a great idea. In my current situation when our Travel guys come in to lift I give them a range that they have to…[Read more]

    House,
    To be perfectly honest, I follow the Block Zero program you have listed on the site almost verbatim. However, this past February, I had the opportunity to hear Jim Radcliffe (Head Strength Coach at Oregon) speak. He said that he started out all of his incoming athletes with an Overhead Squat, then a Front Squat, then finally the…[Read more]

    I?m in a unique situation at Murray State University where I only work with the Football program and I have all but three freshmen separated from the rest of the team. I learned a long time ago from a Coach much smarter than me that you have to treat incoming athletes as if they have never touched a weight before. House talks about it all…[Read more]
