STT’s Football DVD #1 – Conference Series

SMARTERTeamTraining.comWith the football season only weeks away, I wanted to go back to the drawing board to make sure I was not missing something with the athletes I am working with now. Adding competition and implementing power exercises correctly is important this time of year. The energy on this DVD is easy to feel. Coach McKeefery and Coach Hicks arguably had the top two rated presentations at the conference and are always on my short list for events. With Coach McKeefery’s intensity during the on-field live agility session and Coach Hicks southern charm, this STT DVD should be in everyone strength library.

Ron McKeefery takes local football players and a few female athletes through his SAQ program. Speed, agility, and quickness are vital to any teams success. Implementing a program that is progressive, challenging, and fun can be difficult at times. Coach McKeefery shows you a bunch of drills and how his coaching techniques get the most out of each athlete. It is easy to see how much emphasis Ron puts on the team development and mental toughness aspect of his programs. So many teams want and need to focus on the intangibles within a drill, how a drill is completed, and the consistent effort needed to achieve greatness. Nothing gets past Coach McKeefery on this STT DVD and I am sure that after you watch this enthusiastic presentation nothing will get past you either. If you are looking for ways to elevate your training sessions, this one is a no brainer.

I have to be honest. When I was new to this field, I emphasized strength, strength, and more strength. I really had a weakness with agility, conditioning, speed mechanics, jump/landing techniques and could barely coach any aspect of this major aspects of athletic development. Far too many strength and conditioning coaches get sucked into the “LET’S LIFT!” personality that is a stigma that holds us back at times. Coach Hicks takes a great approach to breaking down some of his speed drills and mechanics in this presentation to help your athletes turn the strength that is gained in the weight room into power on the field and court. He takes his athletes through exercises that you can implement in your warm-up, strength, conditioning, and agility sessions seamlessly. Watching this STT DVD reminded me of all the relentless phone calls I made and countless hours spent watching coaches actually coach, the books I read, and the videos that I watched to develop my weakness into what some would call a strength of mine now. Coach Hick’s passion for this field is easy to see. He is one of the quality men in this field. A real resource for both the young and old in the industry.

If I had to pick one of the DVD’s it would be hard. If I was curious and wanted to try just one to see what all of fuss was about, then this would be it. Detailed information regarding each of STT DVD‘s, including the Football, Basketball, and Olympic Sports series, can be found on the website. Go to the Facebook Fan Page and let me know your thoughts about each DVD that you purchase. I look forward to reading what STT nation has to say about the presentation on this DVD.
