Could you be a better football player if you improved your speed, strength and conditioning

Do you want to stay competitive....

Do you want to dominate opponents!

 To do so means more than just adding another layer to your offensive/defensive schemes.

Continuous development of speed, strength and conditioning will make the difference in playing time for individual athletes, as well as wins (and Championships) for the team as a whole.

Because programs that win year in and year out know that superior athleticism is the key to becoming dominant... and maintaining it.

No one knows that better than NFL Head Strength and Conditioning Coach

Duane Carlisle. Coach Carlisle has coached at the youth, high school, collegiate and professional level for over 20 years.

And you don't get a job as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach of an NFL team if you don't get consistent results year after year after year....

That's why I'm excited to let you know about a TeleSeminar Coach Carlisle is running this Monday, July 20. He's going to be answering *your* questions about training in a Live, 'no holds barred' call sure to change the way you think about developing football specific athletic skill in your athletes.

 Click Here - To Register --  Football Strength and Conditioning Seminar

The entire call will be dedicated to answering your questions about developing the speed, strength, power and conditioning of all the players on your team, from lineman to wide receivers and defensive backs.

If you coach football, train football players or are the parent of football players, I highly recommend you register for this call, submit your question and implement the answers. Because you know full well that if you don't, you'll fall further behind the thousands of coaches, trainers, parents and players who do.

I can't remember the last time the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach of an NFL franchise held such an event, for free. And I don't think you'll want to miss out on the chance to make major improvements to your program.

So register now, submit your question and get ready for your most successful season yet!

Are You An Exerciser Or An Athlete

This is part 1 of 2

By Charles Staley, B.Sc, MSS
Director, Staley Training Systems

Probably 90 percent of all American adults are sedentary, fat, and/or just generally soft and out of shape. The fact that you're reading this probably means you're in the remaining 10 percent, which is to your credit.

When I look at the active minority however, it's clear that 90 percent of them are what I call "exercisers." Allow me to explain and define:

Exercisers want to look better, and despite years of neglect and bad habits, they want it yesterday. They try to achieve this end through manipulating the law of thermodynamics. Eat fewer calories, burn more calories. In other words, create a caloric deficit and (hopefully) lose weight and be somebody.

Athletes want to perform better, and despite years of hard training, they still see new PR's in their future. They achieve this end through consistent and progressive training, directed toward a competitive goal

Most exercisers assume that the more an exercise hurts, the more calories it must burn, and therefore, the better it is for you. Similarly, exercisers assume the worse a food tastes, the better it is for you, and if you buy into the law of thermodynamics, it's not hard to see the kernel of truth in this assumption.

Ultimately, being an exerciser is a hard way to go. The exerciser lifestyle is about denial, self-loathing, and guilt.

You've got to make sure you put in enough punishment on the treadmill, and you've also gotta make sure you never eat anything that tastes good. No wonder people hate exercise as much as they hate dieting. I happen to hate both practices myself.

There is a better way however, and that better way is to adopt the mindset and lifestyle of an athlete. Athletes, don't exercise, they train. They don't diet; they refuel. They don't avoid, they seek. If you go into any Olympic weightlifting club, you'll notice that they don't do exercises, they do "the lifts." (meaning, the snatch and clean & jerk). In fact, most weightlifters refer to their workouts as "practices" as in "I'm going to practice."

Exercisers are perpetually trying to "lose weight." When a wrestler or MMA competitor needs to drop weight for a competition, they call it "cutting." Notice how the former sounds negative and reactive, while the latter sounds positive and proactive?

The biggest problem associated with having an "exerciser" mindset is that it compels people to make exercise choices that are contradictory to speed, strength, power, and generally, Type IIB physiology. Here's an example:

You read an article about "time under tension," and since the author is a world-famous strength coach, you decide to give it a shot. On your next workout you decide to squat using a "4-1-2" tempo, meaning a 4-second descent followed by a 1-second pause, and finally, a 2-second ascent. You quickly learn that "TUT" is a very painful experience, and since you associate pain with gain, you're hooked.

It's not until 3-4 weeks later however, that you begin to realize that your agonizingly painful squat routine hasn't put any beef on your quads or hams, and as far as strength goes, you actually feel weaker!

Any motor-learning professor could tell you why...your 7-second reps dramatically reduce the tension on your working muscles, which in turn reduce Type IIB (fast twitch) fiber recruitment in favor of more slow twitch motor units. This sucks, because now you're weaker and slower.

You might assume that the athletic lifestyle is beyond your reach. But being an athlete isn't the exclusive domain of elite performers. In fact, quite the contrary: by strict definition, most athletes are not elite! Instead, being an athlete is a lifestyle and a perspective. It's the way you go about business in the gym. It's a professional attitude, as opposed to an amateur one.

The exerciser does it because he has to; the athlete does it because he wants to.

Making the transition from exerciser to athlete is simple, but not necessarily easy. In the next part of this series, I'll present 5 Critical Practices that'll help you make the switch.
