  • What are the first things players to Auburn do as part of the program? The first thing our incoming athletes do is go through a Functional Movement Screen and some performance testing.

  • Training Football Players: Part 2

    By Chris DiSanto | In Football | on June 21, 2013

    In my first article, I talked about work capacity as it related to conditioning.  Sticking with that theme, Part II of this series will be about weight training.  EVERYTHING we do as it relates to weight lifting is geared towards our players being able to produce high amounts of force at high rates of speed […]

  • Football Combine Training

    By Chad Smith | In Football, Speed Training, Sports Training | on April 4, 2013

      Combine/Pro Day preparation is one of the most high profile endeavors a physical preparation coach can undertake. It is one of the few occasions where the bright light shines on your athlete and your work is so directly impacting their performance, not to mention that the quality of that performance is so easily measured […]

  • In Season Football Training

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on August 14, 2012

    Juggernaut’s Alex Parsons snapping in last night’s pre-season game against the Dallas Cowboys By Chad Wesley Smith In Season training for football players is an often mismanaged situation by football and strength coaches alike. All to often, the case is that a football player/team will spend the whole offseason getting bigger, stronger and faster, only […]

  • Off Season Training and Goals

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on July 10, 2012

    By Chad Wesley Smith With my 3rd place finish at the Europa Platinum Plus Strongman show in Connecticut a few weeks ago, I failed to earn my pro card and am forced to change my training plans a bit for the rest of the year. It was very clear the things that held me back […]

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on July 5, 2012

Recently I began working with one of the Class of 2013’s top offensive line prospects, unfortunately he is […]

  • Juggernaut Athlete of the Month-May

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on June 5, 2012

    By Chad Wesley Smith Doing an athlete of the month award is something that I’ve been meaning to do for several months now and just haven’t taken the time to do so. Lately, our athlete’s performances have been so overwhelming that they must be recognized for the world to know. At Juggernaut we are all […]

  • Medicine Ball Throws for Explosive Power Development

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on April 18, 2012

    Chad and Juggernaut athlete Blake Rodgers (U of Washington bound linebacker) demonstrate some of Juggernaut’s favorite variations to build explosive strength throughout the entire body. Medicine ball throws are a great tool to develop explosive power because of uninhibited triple extension, multi directional/planar movement, high velocities achieved and ease of learning the movement. Medicine ball throws can also be […]

  • Inverted Juggernaut Method: Building High School Beasts

    By Chad Smith | In Training | on February 16, 2012

    The Juggernaut Method is a great program that has helped thousands of athletes take their strength and power to new levels.

  • The Prowler Sprint Test

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on November 30, 2010

    The Prowler is a phenomenal conditioning tool. Sadly though, it’s often misused. Making a speed/power athlete get into a lactic zone, while performing long prowler pushes with incomplete rest until they vomit is a perfect example as to how many people are misusing this powerful tool. While this type of training will raise most athletes’ level […]

  • Football Tune-Up Training

    By Juggernaut | In Training | on November 30, 2010

    I had a group of high school football guys who were coming to me from February through May.

Then, they had to be at organized team workouts and practices for two […]

    By Juggernaut | In Football, Training | on November 29, 2010

    Here at Juggernaut I train a ton of high school and college athletes and I listen to a lot of stupid things that they do. I’m 23 years old, a relatively young athlete myself. I know I make plenty of mistakes, but I also know that I’ve done a lot of things correctly to get […]

  • Building Athletic Linemen

    By Juggernaut | In Football, Training | on November 28, 2010

    [youtube height="355" width="575"]4ztknrLaPwQ[/youtube] [pullquote_right]There are far too many football coaches and athletes, especially at the high school level, who put too much emphasis on bodyweight and maximal strength[/pullquote_right]I’ve heard many strength and conditioning coaches say that they “train their lineman like throwers and their skill guys like sprinters.” In my opinion, this is a great […]

  • Efficient Strength Training Concepts for Athletes

    By Juggernaut | In Football, Training | on November 17, 2010

    By Chad Smith, Juggernaut Training Systems LLC The power clean and other Olympic lifts are a staple in strength and conditioning programs for many sports from high school to the pros. Many Westside (Darkside, Conjugate, whatever you want to call it) influenced coaches despise it, I am not one of those. The Olympic lifts are […]
