Here is Elliot Hulse discussing he best way to set up your in season football strength training. As he points on in the video, the trick is to find a way of balancing it. You can’t just train the same way as you did in the offseason, and you can’t just drop it all together. If you stop your strength training all together, by the time you get to midseason you will be smaller, weaker and slower. That is not something that anyone wants. So what are the keys to proper scheduling of you in season strength training.

In Season Football Strength Training
- Decrease Your Training Frequency
- Choose The Best Exercises
- Enough Volume to Maintain Strength Levels
- Short Rest Periods
With in season football strength training your only goal is maintain what you have done in the offseason. If your off season workout was spot on then you should be able to get away with 1 or 2 workouts per week. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but you will NOT get stronger during the season, and if you overdo your football strength training while you are in season you are increasing your chances of getting injured. How much strength do you think you will lose if you have to set on the sideline nursing an injury for 6-8 weeks. I know it is easy to get excited, you spent the whole offseason getting stronger and you don’t want to slow down. Again you have to realize that the point of football strength training is to make you a better football player. Any training that takes away from your play on the field is a waste of time, and even worse it holds you back. Your football workouts during this time of year should be short, focused and infrequent. Two 30min sessions should be enough to maintain what you built in the offseason and keep you fresh for the end of the season.
