We are joined by UMASS’s Andrew Cormier to discuss using a minimal dose. After a quick run down of how Andrew got up to Amherst, he dives right into what where the driving factors behind the training he set up for the softball team at UMASS. This includes teaching the athletes what “full effort” is, and how they plan out their training weeks. He then shares with us what improvements he saw by cutting the volume of the work and what the athlete’s subjective response was it. Next, he shares with us what he’s taken away from this experiment with cutting volume, and how he sees it impacting his programming in the future. We finish off discussing how this model will alter his in season training, how he has shifted his “focus” with the team, and what he thought he did really well and what he would improve upon.
We are hoping to provide the best possible content for strength coaches with each of our shows. If feel this could provide value for anyone else in the strength and conditioning field please feel free to share
