with Michael Bradley,
Florida State University Men's Basketball Strength and Conditioning Coach

Michael Bradley has coached for over twenty years at the highest level of college athletics, training athletes at institutions including Stanford University, the University of Miami, and the United States Military Academy.

In Volume I of this strength training DVD series, Coach Bradley explains the theory of high intensity strength training, a system of training that integrates knowledge from the fields of physiology, biology, and physics to create reproducible results for all athletes. He also teaches the applications of the theory in the way he trains the Florida State basketball team.

Bradley's goal is getting results from strength training. Strength is not a skill, but working hard and developing strength is. The work ethic shown in his strength program correlates with the hard work players put in on the court to improve their game. The major point of emphasis is learning to train at the right intensity level.

If players are not training intensely enough they will not produce the best results from their training. Bradley is able to maximize their effort and greatly improve their strength in shorter workouts by demanding intense effort and focus from his players.

By constantly tracking progress and focusing on the perfect repetition, athletes are able to show strength increases workout to workout. Bradley explains how to get the absolute most out of your players using high intensity strength training techniques.

If you need a foundation for your strength and conditioning program or simply just need to perfect the structure, this DVD will teach you the philosophical framework of an extremely successful Division I program.

Strength training and conditioning are an integral part of a great basketball team. By developing strength and muscle off the court, players can maximize their performance and reduce their risk of injury on the court.

In this basketball DVD, Michael Bradley takes you into the weight room to see the methods used in his high intensity strength training program. He walks you through the techniques and terminology of the proper ways to teach these protocols while presenting enumerable coaching points on extracting effort, coaching repetitions, equipment setup, use and design. This DVD addresses three distinct topics.

In the first segment, Coach Bradley explains a powerful training technique called Pre-Exhaust. This protocol trains around the weak link of an exercise in order to train the targeted muscles more intensely. By pre-fatiguing certain muscles, it creates a greater training intensity on less used muscles in compound joint exercise. This is such a powerful tool that Bradley says it is used in 30-40% of their routines.

This segment focuses on advanced protocols that can be used to create intensity and variety in your routines. Topics addressed are cadence lifting and super slow or low momentum training, to both increase intensity and reduce force levels. These high tension, controlled repetitions are a great technique to train athletes who are coming off of injuries to get them stronger without rushing them back too quickly. He also demonstrates the even more powerful negative only training and several of its variations, but he advises that only coaches who are very experienced and trained use these techniques in large measures.

Knee Tendonitis
In the third segment he focuses on the knee, one of the most important joints to a basketball player. By working to strengthen the joint as well as the quadriceps, a player has a greater range of motion and a reduced likelihood of severe knee injury. He also addresses tendonitis, a comm
