A reader sent me this link to an article about Georgia’s offseason training program. Suffice to say, there’s a little more to it than this:
I don’t know if the staff is planning any changes to the program this coming summer, but this comment from Kyle Hobbs is worth noting:
For those individuals who believe that we should have maxed tested before starting the program it is important to note that the PREVIOUS SUMMERS numbers were all time PR’s for every athlete. Our training cycles are dictated by many factors that are outside of the Strength and Conditioning Coaches control. That is why it is stated that summer is our most productive training time in regards to maximal strength development. I would encourage others to track personal results of this program to provide a more in depth analysis of the long-term success of the program. We used it and saw great results in a short time frame; this would indicate even better results in a longer time frame.
We’ll see, come the fourth quarter against Boise State.
