The Relationship Between Overload and Specificity

Overload and Specificity are two of the building blocks of any effective strength and conditioning program. In simple terms Overload is an increase or change to the application of stress while Specificity is the applications and coordination of physical abilities to perform a specific sport task. The key to good program design is to understand the interplay between these principles.

Weight training is one of the best tools available to the strength coach when it comes to forcing…

Resisted Sprint Training (RST) is the addition of some form of external resistance during performance of a sprint workout. RST can take on many forms. Running into the wind, uphill running, and towing (sleds or parachutes) are the most common methods. While each of these methods brings something a little different to the table and each athlete/coach probably has developed a favorite, there are certain commonalities that must be considered whenever programming this type of…

Conditioning is a term often used to describe the process of causing crushing fatigue by running your team. A lot. Running them until they’re tired, throwing up, sore and on the brink of quitting.  This is easy to program and implement for the coach, and hard work is obviously being carried out but are the athletes getting better?  Some of this type of conditioning is absolutely necessary for team building or for the development of “toughness”.  The S.A.I.D principle (specific adaptations to…

Football is a game that is played right on the edge of sanity by men willing to sacrifice their bodies for victory. You will not be successful at football without a certain nastiness, an edge, an attitude that will not allow you to back down or bow down to your opponent. The psychological and physical strain that this sport puts on its competitors is just amazing. Coaches frequently preach about “toughness”, but how do we define or better yet, develop toughness? I believe it is something…

As coaches in charge of the physical preparation of athletes, we are in the business of helping our athletes DEVELOP abilities, which is not the same thing as simply having them repeatedly DISPLAY their abilities. Far too often a kid will hit a beautiful, smooth double with the prescribed intensity (which is what we want) and then be told to add inappropriate weight, causing the next set to fall apart. When a kid asks to go up in weight or to do a few extra reps, when I know he is not ready…

Hey Paul!  How have you been lately?  I haven't signed on this sight in a while and I found myself reading a lot of your old blogs.  Lots of good stuff in there man.  I really liked the "Quarter Horses or Mules" blog a lot and agree with the message it sends.  Anyway, I hope you are doing well over at Ole Miss and keep up the good work.

Coach Jackson,

I am currently looking for a GAship. I recently heard through Coach Pollard of Georgia State that you might have an opening down at Ole Miss. I was excited to find out that you trained around and had a great friendship with my girlfriend,  Mo Isom,  at LSU for a of couple years. She had great things to say about you personally and professionally. I graduated from Colorado State with a Bachelor's of Science in Health and Exercise Science and did my student internship with the Air Force Academy football team last season. I then worked with them this past off season as a volunteer coach to gain more experience since they do not offer GAships to non-military. I hope to hear back. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply Paul. I actually just accepted the Head Strength Coach Position at Southeastern Louisiana. Would love to be able to come by and talk with you once I finally get settled down.

My cousin is Jim Wiseman, a new assistant in the football program. He came over from ASU with Coach Freeze. Hopefully, you guys have met and I hope to meet you sometime as well.

Congratulations on the Bowl and 12 game wining season. A lot of credit goes to the coaching staff as it should. But strength coaches take great pride in that as well. You helped form that foundation well before the season started.

Coach Jackson,


Thank you for the add. Would love to talk to you about some of your past experiences and philosophy whenever you have a free moment. Good luck and plenty of eventual success to you and your program.
