    For which sports?

     

     

    For our endurance athletes (runners, triathletes, cyclists) we have an 18-week functional strength training program.  It starts in Mid-October and goes until early March (we then transition to our in-season program).

     

     

    Our training consists of 2 strength training sessions per week (full-body, three-dimensional training) that is periodized: First 6 weeks = general conditioning, Second 6 weeks = power/strength emphasis, last 6 weeks = endurance emphasis.  We actually use non-linear periodization, so those are just our overall goals.  This is, of course, a compliment to their running, biking, and/or swimming as well as home exercises for additional strength training and stretching.

     

     

    Hope that helps!

    Ha, sorry - just noticed which forum this was in (I just responded to it from the "Recent Discussions" thread). 

     

     

    As far as prep for HS basketball - I would start a minimum of 6-8 weeks.  It all really depends on what they did (or didn't do) in the off-season.
