Off-Season Prep

Our off-season preparation program is a four week training block built to develop key movement patterns for strength, power and speed development.  Throughout this process you will learn how to effectively coordinate and load the body in preparation for high performance training.  To maximize results throughout the off-season taking this preliminary step to drill fundamentals will allow your program to progress faster when we begin pushing physical limits.  The content we will be covering throughout this four week period can be started at the tail end of your season or immediately after finishing.

The performance pyramid (left) illustrates the foundation that movement and coordination provides as we develop the body for high performance sport. We always need to develop the movement pre-requisites for an exercise before the exercise can be expressed properly.  Ultimitely, when an exercise is performed well your progress will improve dramatically! 

As we move up the pyramid to strength and conditioning its important to recognize the significance of this movement foundation.  Before using exercises like squats or deadlifts to develop strength it’s important to acquire the movement (control and body awareness) necessary for effective execution.  The same is true for sprinting, multi-directional speed and power training – there are fundamentals for all of these that will set the stage for long term development.  For this reason, at Total Package SSC the fundamentals are a non-negotiable piece of development – we want to see you reach your highest potential!
