Day 8 - 2019
Today was an "X-factor" day for our sprinters/explosion-athletes. This means that athletes were put through a large number of conditioning and mechanics-focused movements and drills.
On days like this, I like to get in as much "pounding" as possible. I don't mean this in the old school way of making every kid run a mile for the heck of it, but in a conditioning way. The pounding that happens now during the early part of the season prepares their body for the extreme amount of stress it will encounter when the competition season begins.
