With sports starting back up, I got a message from another coach on my blog saying ” I saw on Twitter today that some coach ran his football team through the “Murph” workout…I believe it’s a 1 mile run, 100 crunches, 200 pushups, 300 air squats, and another 1 mile run “
Coaches, please think about this…
Some of us have done nothing
This all needs to be taken into account when designing programs and starting sports back up
Having your athletes run a timed mile conditioning test is probably the dumbest thing you could do
Having your athletes test out on max strength in the weight room is pretty stupid
Throwing a bunch of random exercises at your athletes to get them tired is training for injury not performance
Now more than ever, athletes need a comprehensive progressive training program
An assessment so we can find out about their movement quality
A program that makes the athletes better, not tired and sore
Something to think about
Have a great weekend,
PS: Whenever you are ready, here are 3 ways I can help:
1. A Virtual Assessment and Program Design
We can go a virtual checklist and assessment of 11 exercises and movements that will give me a starting point for you and pick up on any per-cursors to injuries
Afterwards, I will design you a 4 week program based off your assessment, what your goals are and the equipment you have access to
Just reply back with “assessment” and I will send you the details
