52-Week Football Training - Phase 2: Winter Workouts - Ben T. Cook

Phase 2 begins during the second week of January (week 7) and continues through the third week in March (week 16), when spring ball practice begins. The progression of this phase gradually carries you from the hypertrophy stage of the periodization model toward a power stage. At the end of this 10-week phase, you perform tests to measure physical improvements. The battery of tests is similar to those administered by pro scouts during their scouting visits.
