Summer Training Program.

**Short - cut to daily logs are at bottom of page.

Month 1 Focus - Foundation strength: Legs, Shoulders, Biceps, Triceps, Calves, Forearms, Abdominals and Core exercises. Moderate training on Chest and Back as per recovery cycle.

Month 2 Focus - Integrated core training on light days - basic accelerated lifting techniques for explosive power preparation.

Month 3 Focus - Explosive power - muscular endurance, sport specific exercises.

Cardio training month 1 light to moderate. use for lactic acid removal and warm-up. Stretching as much as possible. DO NOT FORGET TO STRETCH. DO AT HOME IF NECESSARY!!

Last month. Minimum 45 minutes of cardio (aerobic) to 1 hour 3 times per week. Anaerobic training Alternate days (sprinting, stairs, etc). FLEXIBILITY!!!!!!!

Taking the following example: Camp starts on the 15th of August - 6 weeks for muscular endurance and explosive power phases takes us to July 1. Take away 6 weeks to two months brings us back to May 1-15. Total training days 31 (May) + 30 (June) + 31 (July) + 15 (Mid August) + 3-4 days off between cycles = 110 days. For players going to camp in late August or September add additional days to strength phase.
