Ep. 7 - Internal Program Review - Summer Strength Training for an Elite High School Swimmer

May 10, 2020

This video breaks down a complete month-long strength training program from Ruthless Performance's Athlete Development line during the summer of 2019.

I explain why we chose the exercises that we did, what programs look like at Ruthless Performance, and what makes this program so special. This is a learning tool only. We never recommend following any program that we designed for another individual.

I explain:

-General daily warm-up

-Why we selected certain activation drills for certain days

-How strength work should be programmed

-Conditioning ideas

-How we use circuit training to efficacy and efficiency

-Why certain exercises are better for certain athletes


As always, follow Ruthless Performance on twitter and instagram (both @RuthlessPerform).
