This DVD is a must for those willing to think outside the box as well as those that are interested in developing their program to ensure their athletes are ready to be their best when their best is expected. This three presentation DVD is the one to get if you want to see what STT DVD‘s are all about. Coach Johnson’s, Coach VanDyke’s, and Coach Pennewill’s passion for what they do is easy to see and it comes across very well on this STT production.
Allan Johnson, one of the biggest names in the collegiate strength and conditioning field, did a great job last year talking about some of the mental toughness and team bonding techniques he used to get the mindset right of his Ohio State University Buckeye Football Teams. I have had the opportunity to speak and become good friends with Coach Johnson over the years. He even sat down for a quick Q&A session with me when we ran into each other at an event in Philadelphia. Allan’s insight on team training, as well as his ability to keep you motivated, is top notch. I make it a point to sit down and watch the STT DVD‘s each month from a fans point of view. And this month’s DVD choice could not have been more fitting.
David VanDyke was asked to speak about his agility program because of his knowledge of sport appropriate preparation. He takes his demonstrators through a non-stop 40+ minute workout that you could do tomorrow with most of your teams. Coach VanDyke’s attention to detail is intense and his athletes are able to feed off his passion. It is great to see a coach that never takes a day off regardless if he is working with his teams and athletes, or at a conference. David knocked this live demonstration right out of the park.
With all that goes on at these STT events, I do not get to see each presentation from start to finish. It is impressive to see what these coaches are willing to share. Scott Pennewill’s presentation is a great resource for any one working with a volleyball program. I have had the opportunity to work with Coach Pennewill first hand and thought the exercises he demonstrates here fit well into the STT programs. These exercises can be used before, during, and after practice which allows coaches to build versatility into their practices. Having a on-court physical preparation program is important in volleyball. With the scheduling requirements that all volleyball teams work within, you have to be able to make your strength training and injury prevention approach a priority that is simple to implement and a consistent part of an athletes preparation.
