Hey Bruce,

I was wondering if you could give me some insight on how you run your conditioning program for your high school football team. Im currently an asisstant h.s. football coach-while majoring in Exercise Science (sophomore yr)- and it was decided I'd be in charge of the S & C program this year.
Any advice or tips from your experience being a strength coach ?
Thanks,
Josh

We train outside of the weight-room 3 days per week with a different emphasis on each day. Reps will vary but no more than 3-5 on most exercises. I do teach the crossover, having the athlete open up and turn wastes too much movement and time. The speed-skater jumps have 2 versions, one help train the legs to absorb eccentric load while the other help develop the muscles used for lateral movement off the outside foot.

Hey Bruce,

My email is kuhlanjw@gmail.com.

I really appreciate the help. I'm sure with the added materials I will pass the exam for sure. I'm taking it in two weeks so this comes at a perfect time. I hope all is going well for you and your program.

Sincerly,
Jeff Kuhland

Hey Bruce,

We are all set for a while with GA's. We will need a few interns in the summer if you know anyone that would be interested. Hope you had a great holiday. Thanks

Tires and Sledges are used in our program for a GPP effect. We flip them for total overall body strength brute force and power. If done correctly, the movement is similar to a lineman coming off the ball. We use sledges for our core(total body). What makes them great is they are adaptable to any angle and mechanism. Also we believe in doing core while standing. With high school age athletes all these things would prob. improve overall conditioning, body awareness and strength and power through neuromuscular adaptation at the very least. All these things would help an athlete have better jump performance. I hope this is some good info. If you have any questions let me know.

Hi Bruce, hope things are going well for you at Marbury. How do you know Doug and Troy at OSU? No, I haven't gotten anything from them since I left after the 2007 season. I don't have any of UAB's stuff, either, but Tommy could probably help you out there.

It was pretty tough. The actual format of the test is what is so hard. A lot of the questions seem like they could have grey areas. They'll ask you stuff like what muscle gets worked MOST during the squat. They do have a place for comments, so I left comments explaining my answers and questions, so I don't know if that helped my score or not. Periodization was pretty big on it, and I would definitely recommend writing some flash cards to study with right before you go in. Since there's so much stuff to test on, I think it definitely helped me to review everything right before I went. When do you plan to take it?

Hey Bruce, I just wanted to say thanks for the study material. I passed the CSCS pretty well and it definitely helped. How's everything looking for this year?

Man Bruce, that's great, I had to go back to summer school, but I was home for a month and have been working with my neighbor, getting him ready for his freshman college season, he's been doing real good, haven't got to weigh him but he definitely has put on some muscle, been putting him through the grinder. Haven't made him max out cause i've really been focusing on implementing techniques to get him better stability in his should since he had surgery on in in January. But other than that, I have him doing complexes, speed drills, explosive movement and switching it up every week. I'll send you a copy of the workout I came up with and am putting him through let you check it out and let me get some feed back on what you think.
