• Reduce Injury/ Soreness – a number of athletes experience chronic levels of soreness when they start team training in preparation for the Fall season. Soreness can be reduced with the appropriate flexibility and massage training program because it flushes toxic debris out of the muscles that accumulate. Many athletes just train through soreness all season and the result is muscle breakdown, injuries and burnout which can lead to subpar performance. The more soreness the athlete feels, the more In Season training will help their body recover and feel better.
  • Sustainability – the hard work done in the Off-Season needs to be transferred to the playing field and sustained for an entire sport season. Often times when an athlete abruptly stops training or they have inadequate levels of strength and speed, they get to the midway point of the season and their performance starts to diminish, injuries set in, and there is less psychological drive to succeed.  Athletes need to be at their best as the season progresses.  A properly designed In-Season training program can help the athlete sustain their performance for an entire season.
  • Maintains Strength – if an athlete stops strength training when they enter their competitive season, gains will start to be lost within 2-3 weeks. The result is a weakened neuromuscular system, loss of joint stability and increased risk of injury.  The athlete’s strength program is modified during the competitive season to enable them to maintain their strength.  At Premier, we incorporate an In Season training template for athletes enrolled in the High School speed & strength program.
  • Confidence – When an athlete is strong and recovered they feel good both physically and mentally and this keeps confidence levels high which are essential to performing well during the season.
  • Staying Sharp – Every athlete wants to maintain speed, agility and quickness during their sport season. The In-Season program enables athletes to continue fine-tuning speed, agility and quickness by doing less but with higher quality.  This ultimately helps them sustain the rigors of the entire season while having more consistent performances on the playing field
