SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 // PATRICK ESTES
During my time at the University of Maryland, our weight room was in close proximity to both the basketball court and player locker rooms. It was a great set up and it allowed us to keep our eyes on the athletes. Like most D1 athletes, their schedules are chaotic due to class, study hall, practice, individual workouts, meetings, and time in the weight room. As S&C coaches, we had front row seats to the organized madness which was the athlete’s everyday norm. Don’t get me wrong, the structure is necessary for the success of the athlete, however, it can sometimes be overwhelming for their development.
