What is the time commitment while training remotely?
Depending on physical maturity, seasonality, familiarity with the program, and overall training goals, the answer to this question will fluctuate on a daily basis. For example, youth athletes will throw and/or hit will roughly every other day to accommodate necessary recovery demands between training sessions, while a physically mature skill-focused athlete within a velocity development program will throw 6 days per week, with most likely 2 of those days being of higher intensities and longer training duration. A broad rule of thumb is to designate roughly an hour total for proper warm-up, throwing/hitting, and recovery followed up with about an hour of lifting when programmed in as well (usually 2-4 times per week.)
So, broadly speaking, every athlete that trains with Driveline will have anywhere from 3-6 days of throwing/hitting per week and 2-4 days of lifting. On days where athletes have both modalities prescribed within their schedule, 2-2.5 hours is roughly how long they’ll train for. On days where just one training modality is scheduled, roughly 1-1.25 hours is a good ballpark on how much time will be spent training.
