Post-Season Eccentric Block

A handful of times a year, 2-3 ideally, we program a block that primarily focuses on eccentric strength training, like we did here in our last block before finals started, for a couple reasons;

  1. Injury Prevention
  2. Increased Power
  3. Increased Strength
  4. Increased Sport Performance

Over the course of the calendar year we perform primarily concentric work (~70% of the year), lesser amounts of eccentric work (~20% of the year, and small amounts of isometric work (~10% of the year) to make sure we are touching all aspects of muscle contraction throughout the year.
