I would like to know how many college strength and conditioning coaches utilize the HIT priniciple in training their athletes. If you do utilize HIT, when do you incorporate it in your program? Off Season / In season ?

If you do not utilize HIT, why ?

Happy to help. FYI, I was a Nautilus "instructor" 30 years ago. I was a senior in HS and was the strongest guy in the area for my size (190lbs). I gained strength on Nautilus machines for 3 months...then plateaued. I got weaker in the main lifts,(because I didn't practice them)........and I blew out my knee in week be the judge.....still played all 10 games.....made All-League/District.....etc.....but I wonder what could have been...if I had trained functionally....


Just my 2 cents.

Thanks so much for the link. I read Dr.Hatfield article and I tend to argee with his views. I have many athletes who come to me asking about HIT training. I tell them, they will get stronger no matter what training they do as long as it is safe and applicable to your sport, but in my opinion (which everyone has one)  I feel an athlete who is looking to become more explosive and faster, may not see the optimal results training with the HIT philosophy. I appreciate the response and I am also looking for new ways to gather knowledge and like to hear from other strength coaches.

You may find this article of interest.

I always find the HIT/Anti-HIT arguments useful and interesting when continuing my quest for knowledge.
