We are proud to present our fifth monthly edition of 2017, which has a strength-and-conditioning theme. The months of May and June offer the perfect time for a coach to take stock of his program and make sure he is making the most of the time he is requesting of his players during the summer months.

Strength-and-conditioning programs have become so personal to high school football coaches, as many of the programs now complement the style a team plays during the season. Strength programs for up-tempo programs might focus on building fast-twitch muscles in the weight room and work on speed and agility on the track and field. Other programs strive to develop big, physical teams that dominate both sides of the line of scrimmage.

We will share the stories and tips from experts in the field of training – whether it’s strength, conditioning, speed, equipment, nutrition, motivation, safety or recovery – in hopes of sharing some information that high school football coaches may not know. It can be overwhelming to tackle all of the various ways in which players are training these days.

It’s worth taking the time in the offseason to make sure you are aware of all of the latest trends and educational opportunities so that if a parent asks for your advice, you will be armed with the information you need. If you would like to learn more about any of the topics we cover in this edition, we’d like to hear from you at [email protected].

We want to continue to provide you with information you want in the coming months, so we’d like to hear your suggestions for content. Engage with us on our website, FNFCoaches.com, and social media, @FNFCoaches, and tell us your suggestions for feature stories.
