Overview: Focuses primarily on the generating fast switch speed- power. found in lifting program. Also stability exercises that improve flexibility, core strength and balance, and eliminate imbalances. Intensity (percent of your max) is medium but prepared or high power in the few weeks ahead





Phase 2

Explosive Power-Speed Endurance


Mission :Continue building a solid foundation with explosive exercises to prepare for more athletic advanced workouts.


Overview: Workouts are structured into supersets, each consisting of a power movement followed by a stabilization exercise. Weight, sets and reps are moderate, but challenging enough to increase your strength and muscular endurance — an essential step before performing heavy lifts.



Phase 3

Mass and Weight


Mission: Build as much muscle as possible, increase strength and cut body fat to enable you to run harder, cut better and overpower opponents.


Overview: This is where the grind of the program begins. Three to 4. full-body routines with two exercises per major body part are designed to achieve a high volume of reps with each muscle group — essential for building muscle. Sets and intensity increase as reps decrease






Phrase 4

Maximum Speed Velocity & Intense Power


Mission : Enhance as much muscular strength as possible so you can take on the physical load of the season.


Overview: The max strength phase is again centered on a full-body routine, but now you begin to lift heavy weight. You perform two to three exercises for each major body part at 85 to 100 percent of your max. Sets increase, but due to the high intensity, you perform fewer reps, sometimes only one rep per set.
