Fit For 90's Dr. John Cone discusses the challenges we face with isolation and how to help your players train individually.
At Fit For 90, each year we have numerous college teams whose players return home for the summer. At the division 1 level, many of these players train with another team during the summer, while some of our smaller schools have quite a few players who train on their own during the off-season break. This is a yearly challenge for coaches, but fortunately something we can plan for. With players unable to train with their teams, we are presented with a similar challenge, but on short notice. For the coming weeks and potentially months all of our players will be responsible for their own training.
Dr. Cone will discuss how we can deal with the environment we find ourselves in, while keeping our players safe and maintaining some semblance of high performance. During the webinar he'll cover:
