QUESTIONS FOR ATHLETES
How do I know when my program has been assigned?
To ensure that your are properly receiving your programs the following steps must be satisfied upon registration:
- Ensure you have downloaded the App via the App Store or Google Play
- Enable app push notifications (IMPORTANT: If this step is missed you will not be prompted when new programs/phases are assigned)
How does my program work?
Every program is structured into progressive phases looking at developing specific strength and energy systems adaptations.
How many workouts do I get?
The number of workouts per phase depends on the phase and timing of delivery of the phase. Phases delivered in the off-season may contain anywhere from 3-5 workouts per week and can include strength, conditioning, and recovery sessions. In-Season phases may contain anywhere from 2-3 workouts per week and can include strength and recovery sessions.
How do I read my workout?
When looking at your workouts, you will notice that each grouping of exercises can have a prescribed number of sets, reps, weight, time, tempo and rest.
- Sets represent the number of times each exercise or grouping of exercises will be repeated.
- Reps represent the number of times a specific exercise is repeated per set.
- Weights provided are not set in stone, athletes may use more or less weight than what is prescribed based on perceived level of difficulty. (Not every exercise will have a prescribed weight)
- Time represents the length of an isometric hold or the length of an interval. (Not every exercise will have a prescribed time)
- Tempo is the length of time each repetition should take. It is broken up into the different phases of the movement including: eccentric, isometric, and concentric. An example of a tempo that an athlete may see is 2:2:2. This indicates that the athlete will take 2 seconds in the eccentric phase (the lowering), 2 seconds in the isometric phase (the hold or static time at the mid-point of the movement), and 2 seconds during the concentric phase (the raising, pushing, or pulling portion of the movement).
- Rest represents the time an athlete should take between exercises or sets.
