Did Your Hard Work Pay Off? Dr. Yessis Project: Part 3
Now that the summer is winding down and the fall season is upon us, it is time for strength andconditioning coaches to see if all of their hard work paid off. As coaches of physical preparation,our job is to try and improve talent levels and maximize our athletes’ genetic potentials, so that theybecome better in their sport. I am a coach who isn’t afraid to ask for help and seek out advice fromthose who are smarter than me. At the end of the last high school football season, I sought out the adviceof my friend Yosef Johnson, who is the President of Ultimate Athlete Concepts, and mentored under Dr.Yessis for over 15 years.I thought I had a decent knowledge base because I corresponded with, and studied under coaches who Iconsider some of the best in this country. I’m certified by the NSCA and Westside Barbell, and I’m also anobsessed reader of Dr. Yessis, Dr. Verkhoshansky, Bondarchuk, James Smith, Zatsiorsky and RobertSapolsky. However, after listening to Yosef’s recommendations, I was dumbfounded at the simplicity of it all.But knowing who he is as a person and knowing that he mentored under Dr. Yessis for a long period of time,I followed Yosef’s recommendations….with ¾ of the team. The other quarter of the team used a popular method that got a ton of praise for its practicality and results. I did this because I couldn’t believe what I washearing. I knew that the with other program, the guys would see results because I used that program withmyself and other athletes. As I mentioned in the parts 1 and 2, through Yosef I had the great fortune of working with Dr. Yessis to helpfind the root cause of our starting quarterback Troy Green’s season ending elbow injury, as well as build himinto a better athlete. In the second article about working with Doc, I mentioned some of the results I wasnoticing with Troy after only working with Doc for a short time.Following Yosef’s and Dr. Yessis’ recommendations with Troy and my team, I applied everything that Ipractically could with my athletes. Working with a high school football program is difficult for many reasons,however, compliance is one of the biggest issues. This includes: kids having to work, not having a ride fromor to home, playing multiple sports, having to stay after with teachers, or just sheer and utter laziness. Butall in all, the majority of my athletes worked extremely hard when they were able to come in and train.Before the start of doubles, I compiled the results from the team’s training and tested my athletes in the 40,pro shuttle, vertical and single leg broad jumps. Listed below are the average (AVERAGE may be stronger)results from my entire team’s off-season training.
