1 Program Design from the Ground Up: Creating Optimal training Programs Robert dos Remedios, MA, CSCS, SCCCDirector of Speed, Strength & ConditioningCollege of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, CA
2 THANKS!!! Joe Dowdell and his PEAK Staff! All my mentors, friends, and influences in this biz…..too many to listMy wife Francine and my daughter Annabella (you’ll meet her later…)All of you for being here and feeling that listening to me might be a worthwhile experience!
3 My Background….Former D1 Football University of California, BerkeleyMA in Kinesiology from California State University, NorthridgeCSCS Since 1990CSCCa certified strength coachNSCA Collegiate S&C coach of the year in 2006Head S&C coach at College of the Canyons, CA since 1998Men’s Health Power Training (Rodale Books) & Cardio Strength Training (Rodale Books)Coachdos.com Premium site started in 2010
8 What is my job?? Build better PEOPLE! Build Better Athletes…..Build better PEOPLE!There is a BIGGER picture than getting Bigger, Stronger, Faster….getting a scholarship etc. MUCH BIGGER PICTURE“Coaches Elevate” – Brian Grasso-
9 “The Harder you work, the harder it is to give up!”
12 Who would you want to meet in the 4th quarter??
13 Program Design 101…“Needs Analysis”Checklist : Strength, Power, Sport-speed, reactivity, lean body mass, fat loss, energy system trainingInjury Preventon? As opposed to injury promotion??Functional Training? As opposed to DYSFUNCTIONAL Training??
14 “Pain and Anguish is an amazing glue that bond people together”
15 Do you need to have played/competed in the sport/activity in order to train the athlete? Nope….but you sure as heck better know the sport demands!
16 Training Session Components: Mobility/ Activation – Foam roll, TGU’sComplex warm-up – Bar ComplexOlympic Lift variation – Clean/Snatch variation, ExplosivesStrength Training – Full-body, push/pullCore – Rotational/anti, stabilization, dynamicFinisher – anaerobic circuits, specific runningStretch – Band self-stretch
17 You better have a TRAINING PHILOSOPHY! The Foundation…Bedrock of your training programsDon’t confuse this with your training techniques and toolsWORK CAPACITY….BUILD BULLET PROOF ATHLETES!
18 Your ‘Toolbox’If you haven’t used a specific tool in your toolbox during your last couple of training cycles, throw it out.Don’t be a DABBLER!
19 YES! Hey Dos….are you a Olympic lifting guy ??? Kettlebell guy ??? TRX guy ???Sandbag guy ???_________ (insert tool of your choice) guy ???YES!
20 As stolen from Alwyn Cosgrove…..He just says shit better than me. Sigh 1. Body weight before external resistance2. Train to the 5th PowerThis is a concept I learned from Juan Carlos Santana – basically it refers to the following.a) Train in a standing position, GROUND BASEDb) Train with free weights (destabilized).c) Use Multiple Joints (the kinetic CHAIN is naturald) Train with explosivenesse) Train functionally - train movements not muscle groups.3. Train unilaterally and multi-planar4. Use all primary methods to develop strength5. Variation6. Avoid mimicking skills7. Train with BalanceBalance between motor qualitiesBalance between movement patterns (e.g. horizontal push-pull)8. Focus on Rate of Force Development.9. Train the antagonistsThink about it – how fast would you drive your car if you knew your brakes were not working at their best?10. Use Undulating Periodization

28 Actual Rugby training Intro quotes, written by a D1 S&C coach…. At a minimum, the following exercises should be performed. The emphasis is on upper body strength since all of the running involved will work the lower body a lot. Still, some strength and flexibility training of the lower body should be included.Choose a weight with which you can perform at least 8 reps and no more than 12. If you cannot do 8, go on to the next exercise and remember to pick a lower weight next time. If you can lift more than 12, move on and next time pick a higher weight. All lifts are done to a count of TWO TO LIFT, a count of FOUR TO LOWER. The goal is to reach "momentary muscular failure," that is that you cannot lift any more weight without resting. Move immediately to the next exercise. YOU NEED ONLY TO PERFORM ONE SET PER TRAINING PERIOD.As a general rule, the Offseason is the only time you will see significant strength gains. In the Preseason and Inseason periods there are too many other activities going on and too many nagging little injuries for you to concentrate on strength. Encourage your players to continue weight training in the Offseason and you will see a stronger, fitter team come next season.

30 Training in 2011: How I got here… Linear vs. Undulating Periodization….My evolution…Linear *2005-present…..“Alternating linear” Periodization*2004 won JC National Championship in football…only team to ever go 14-0 in JC history.SO WHY CHANGE?!?!

33 It all started with a simple question… Al Vermeil: “Dos do you think you may have over-trained your football players using this training system?”Dos: “what do you mean? We won every single game…threw 2 shutouts in the playoffs! Pfffft…”……then the 2nd guessing started.

35 Where are all the isolation / single joint exercises? In the shitty programs…In non-real world programs (internet)…In OLD programs (non-conforming conformists)…
