Championship Week Strength Training Sessions - What to do??

I get asked by a few players about how close to a game is it ok to lift.

Here are my guidelines

All strength work is fair game up to 72 hours before the game.

The day before, morning of, or an hour or so before the game you are allowed to do the following

Dynamic Warm Up
Low volume Plyos and Med Ball Throws
Low volume Olympic Lift Variation - No more then 12-15 total reps.

Within 48 hours of the game, all upper body work is fine. Just no heavy leg work within 72 hours of the game.

Stay Strong,
