Just a comment to back up what has been commented below...

Part of my strategy to build better football players is to use olympic lifts.

What follows is, when I have an athlete on the platform, I am teaching proper technique from a weighlifting perspective. The principles of power generation and back management do not change because there is a football player on the platform. If it does, I should re-evaluate my strategy.

I feel the phrase that includes "football player not weightlifter" is overused. However, what it means to me is my exercise selection, volume, and intensity will differ from weightlifting... the principles do not!

"As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble."

THE COACH IS A FIRED UP GUY AND HIGHLY MOTIVATED! THAT IN ITSELF WILL BRING RESULTS TO A ALREADY ELITE ATHLETE LIKE DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL PLAYERS. I KNOW BECAUSE I WAS A 4 YEAR LETTERMAN IN COLLEGE AND THEN STRENGTH COACHED FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE THE USFL.

THE AGILITY DRILLS LOOKED GOOD AND THERE AGAIN IS A LOT OF ENERGY ON THE FIELD. THIS GUY IS A GOOD TALKER (THE COACH).

NOT SUPER IMPRESSED WITH WEIGHT TRAINING PROGRAM. POOR TRIPLE EXTENSION WITH THE CLEANS, POOR UNTILIZATION OF THE STRETCH REFLEX OF THE HIPS, HAMS AND LOWER BACK. ALL OF WHICH ARE A MUST FOR BLOCKING AND TACKLING.

NOT SURE OF WHAT HE MEANS WHEN E SAYS HE IS NOT BUILDING WLIFTING STRENGTH. PROPER WEIGHT TRAINING HELPS BUILD THE EXPLOSIVE POWER THAT PLAYERS NEED. WHY WOULD HE BE DOING BENCH PRESSES, WHEEL BARRELLS AND BENT ROWS ON A MACHINE, IF HE WAS TRYING TO BUILD FOOTBALL STRENGTH.

HEY COACH, YOUR A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! REMEMBER YOU PLAY THE GAME ON YOUR FEET!!!!!!! SO TRAIN ON YOUR FEET WITH SPEED AND GOOD POSTURE. OLYMPIC LIFTING SHOULD BE YOUR BREAD AND BUTTER!!

"Everything we do is based on becoming better football players, not better weightlifters....to teach a person to be the optimal power-generator in a football fashion"

What does this mean????????
