Gridiron Success With John Davies - Part Two!

As we begin to unfurl our plan of attack for gridiron success it is important to take a step back and review the goals of our training, which will in turn help us decipher the route to meet these objectives.

While it may seem straight forward, if not redundant but our training goal is without question to create BOTH champions on and off the field of competition. And again, while this may seem to be an obvious goal, most strength and conditioning departments focus upon winning those cute little weight lifting plaques on the wall as opposed to adding to the "w's" during the season or equally-so, finding a way to personally shirk responsibility for helping build winning teams. We do neither and simply Renegade Training builds winners!

From a broad based vantage this is done through one equally simple and straight-forward rationale that I have borrowed from military history and is also overlooked in sports performance. Victory does not occur through some random event but through painstaking (if not brutally tough) training.

Proper preparation will develop an unstoppable force, overcome apparent insurmountable adversity and will not, nor ever can be vanquished. Proper preparation will take a group of young men and turn them into a cohesive unit, a team working together.

How this is done is in essence by avoiding the coaching phenomenon of today as many in the "profession" will teach gadget-filled, "soft" training shortcuts (to test better, not necessarily play better). Through Renegade Style training, you will outwork your opponent, day in and day out through tough, exhausting work.

This is not a popular word in today's soft culture and an exercise community that whines and bellyaches behind the words of "overtraining". But then again - victory, the ability to overcome where others fail is not for everyone. It is for those who dare to be great, dare to push to the limits and beyond. Victory is our domain.

While "easy" to complete tasks, excused laced rationale have become common-place in our society, in Renegade training we embrace the hard road to success don't want a damn thing given to us.

It is in-fact a revelation that the fog of battle can only be prepared within the face of (training) chaos. And for those who exist in the world of (training) chaos, the chaos of battle (competition) is there home and they devour there foe who wilts in the shadow of pressure.

In our plan of attack one of the first assumptions made is simply that "speed kills". The weapon of speed has proven to be the ultimate weapon of warfare since the dawn of conflict and as Sun Tsu would note in his "The Art of War", speed will not only physically destroy the competition but also demoralize them emotionally. Thus you can see how the overriding issue of one of our training objections is to develop explosive speed and power such that you can control the ebb and flow of the competition and influence victory.
