    Coach,

     

    Is there some place where I could find a progression of VAT cycles, or is this just someting you put together by trial and error.  Did you include these in your first book?

     

    Thanks

    Coach,

     

    By VAT are you referring to a form of linear periodization.  I remember you breifly talking about this at a Hammer Strength clinic, and saw you referred to it in a recent post. I am just trying to get some clarification on the true meaning of the term.  I briefly skimmed through past posts to find a definition or explaination  but still have some confusion on the term. Also, is this something you would use for an entire block of training ( saw where you mentioned high school athletes), a cycle, a certain  tier, or all of the above?

    Coach Cash,

     

    When do you fit in your prehab exercises such as neck, wrist, knee, ankle, etc..  Do you believe those are areas that only need to be done twice a week on your T-Th workouts as corrective exercise? 

     

    I will sometimes hit the neck and wrists everyday but in different angles.  My neck work for instance might be weighted on M-W-F, but manual of T-TH.  That is one area in the sport of football that I want to say I did  everything I could to prepare the kid for contact. At the end of every season I get with the athletic training and take a look at our injury list from the prior season.  Based on that I prioritize what I need to do a better job of strengthening.

     

    I like what you said about don’t crush what lies ahead. Thanks.

    Guys tell me what you think about the following workouts. I have put this together for what I call developmental players in our high school football program (Junior Varsity kids).  I am putting this out there because I am not sure if I have butchered the integrity of the tier system or not.  It is normal for me to couple a main tier lift with other smaller exercises (super/tri set). Our kids work in groups of three and I call the workout on the whistle.  Here is an example of a Monday lift.

     

    Dynamic Warm-up

    OH Squats

    Box Jumps

     

    Tier#1           

    Power Clean

    Abs

    Posterior Shoulder           

     

    Tier #2

    Front Box Squat

    Spot

    Gripper and Neck

     

    Tier #3

    Grip 2 Bench

    Spot

    Posterior Chain Lift

     

    Finish with a Pull ?up routine/stretch

     

    My question is this. Does the integrity of the system get messed up by including Tier #4 and #5 exercises with Tiers 1-3?

     

    The other question I had was whether or not I am doing too much on the Tuesday/Thursday workouts. Those are days that I call running days, but really they are pre-hab, SIDs, agility, metabolic days.

    Coach,

     

    I e-mailed you with my school e-mail on Monday or Tuesday.  Not sure if you knew it was me.  Shoot me a  quick e-mail to let me know if you got it. Thanks.

    I will soon be taking a position in a new system coordinating the strength and conditioning for grades 6-12.  I have already looked at the example of “Block 0” under the professional portal.  I am curious as to what the protocol is for advancing from Block 0 to Block 1.  If your athletes are performing all of the exercises prescribed do you immediately move them to Block 1, or do you train them all as Block 1 athletes for the entire year. Also, is there any other sites I could use to help me formulate a plan of attack.  I noticed in one post there was mention of another book or something.  I wasn’t sure if there was any more information out there that could help me.  Thanks
