Can I do Driveline programming while in-season?
The short answer to this question is yes; however, athletes must consider that remote programming passed along to them will be optimized for in-season performance rather than high-intent training days. Explained further, this means that instead of having weighted ball pulldowns or highly challenging hitting programming prescribed to them x days per week, max intensity in-season reps will replace this stimulus and soak up the majority of their available training economy.
This most certainly is not a bad thing, as athletes playing in HS, Summer Ball, and even professionally often do not have a program that fits their training needs from both a skill and strength perspective while in-season. As a result, we frequently see in-season athletes either doing too much or too little while in-season, which can cause detrimental amounts of fatigue or off-season gains to slip away day-by-day.
To avoid this from occurring, our hitting and pitching programming is designed to be done year-round, allowing athletes to seamlessly transition from season to season so that we can improve performance and help assure that we are sustaining it.
