Off-Seasons: Year Round Sports

Written on June 18, 2007 at 1:29 pm, by Eric Cressey

I have gone through your book and it is very good. I am however confused as to how I can apply the phases to year round sports like BJJ. Our tournaments are not to often and I do not find out about them until 2 months before. I love the static template as it is just what I need. Any help with organizing this into a yearly plan would be great. Thanks.

A few options:

1. Give it up and take up checkers. đŸ™‚

2. Plan several mini off-seasons. That is, go into off-season mode, and then just kick in the metabolic conditioning work 4-6 weeks out from your tournament.

3. Set aside 4-5 months out of the year when you won’t compete; you’ll just train.
