What are your recommendations for doing the 5/3/1 program during the in-season of a sport? xHere are some basic things that I advise; xTrain two times per week. xLower the training max to about 90% and work up slowly x'RQ¶W JR IRU PD[ UHSV³xKeep assistance work to a minimum ±do things for injury prevention and whatever you (or your athletes) feel that they need mentally to VXFFHHG³ 'RQ¶Wwaste too much training time on these lifts. xRemember that the performance on game day is the most important thing. xRemember that when an athlete feels strong and confidant he will feel unstoppable in competition. xEven when training lighter, strength gains can come. xIf you keep up the in-season training your off-season numbers will drastically improve.
