This power phase should be performed as a circuit with a rest between circuits. The rest should be up to two minutes long.
Balancing work and recovery is an important part of staying healthy and improving as an athlete.
A strength training program during the season can easily swing the pendulum in either direction. A poorly planned program can put additional strain on the shoulder, elbow, and/or hip, reducing on-field performance.
A well-planned program will allow players to maintain strength, allow tissues to rest, and prevent injury by keeping mobility in check.
Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight, or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack.
If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional.
Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
