Rob Rose, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and President of True Athlete Performance explains why testing is a critical component of any successful strength and conditioning program. He uses his extensive background in exercise science to create an effective yet simple process for evaluating football players in the area of strength and conditioning. This evaluation method will give you a good baseline and evaluation tool for the football-specific drills and testing parameters that you can use to develop great players.
Coach Rose shares 18 testing dynamics specifically for evaluating football players. Each of these dynamics includes multiple drills and every drill is thoroughly explained, including a walk-through when appropriate and a full speed demonstration.
This DVD is an excellent tool for helping athletes perfect the applicable exercises and improve their performance. During each test, Rose also explains mistakes that players can make which will reduce their effectiveness.
You will learn tests in the following areas:
Linear Speed/First Step/Acceleration: Rose demonstrates the most commonly used speed test and several variations.
Agility: While the Pro Agility (5-10-5) and 3-Cone/L Drill are used in many football testing scenarios, Rose also brings to the table the 4-Corner Box Drill, which tests several different aspects of agility in one drill.
Power: Rose discusses several body-weight power tests, including the vertical and broad jump, as well as another explosive power test, the kneeling med ball toss. He provides several options on the vertical jump test depending on the equipment available.
Reaction/quickness: Not commonly used for football testing, these three reaction/quickness tests take only 10 seconds each.
Strength: Rose explains three strength tests that place all athletes on an even playing field.
Now you can make sure that your strength and conditioning program is actually improving your athletes. Improve your teams performance on game day by optimizing your program with these valuable techniques. 36 minutes (plus 17 minutes of bonus footage). 2013.
