(0 votes)

Topic: The Transition Phase And Out Of Season Training

Once an athletes season comes to an end, they enter into the often misunderstood transition phase and then into out-of-season training. This time between the end of the 2011 season and the start of the 2012 season provides athletes and coaches with a lot of very serious training opportunities that can make or break the 2012 season. The goal of this webinar is to address the different options available to athletes of all levels to make their 2012 season one of their personal bests.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

The basics of the transition phase
How to ensure your out-of-season training fits into a periodized yearly training plan
Testing to determine benchmarks and limiters for athletes of all abilities
Methods to address and reduce sports-specific limiters while out-of-season
Options for single-sport focused training while out-of-season
Options for two-sport focused training while out-of-season
