Heard you recommend yoga videos for mobility. Have you ever done an at home yoga video? If so, which one?
Yes, I have done "in home Yoga" via watching some guy on a Yoga DVD. I have no idea what it was called - I do know that it featured some skinny dude with a pony tail. I still prefer my own mobility as it's less time consuming but depending on the phase someone is in, people can benefit from the brainless follow-along. I think a lot of people who struggle with making mobility a priority would do themselves a huge favor by going to a specific Yoga class, at least once a week. This keeps them accountable and sets an exact time/place for their session.
I have "coached" Yoga, although I hesitate calling it "Yoga" since I'm in no way qualified to do so. During the football season, we do at least one 30-45 minute Yoga session with the players. I learned a few Yoga poses and put the kids through a very simple session.
So our in-season program consists of two days of strength training and one day of Yoga. Everything in our football program is based around the following concept: the football players should be 100% ready to play on Friday night. So each day, each practice/lifting session is done with that concept in mind. On Friday night, I want the kids the strongest, feeling the best and feeling confidently aggressive.
One of the big problems I see in sports training (and really all training) is that everyone is trying to add/learn new shit. My goal is to whittle away as much fluff and crap as possible. I only want to do what is absolutely necessary and do those things perfect.
