As I have mentioned before, between our strength and conditioning classes during school, and our various off-season programs after school, we have over 300 students a day come through our weight room. I have also shared that most of the classes and students I have are great. There are though, without a doubt, varying degrees of intensity and focus (in reference to Coach Courville’s Evaluation of Performance Chart) among the students that train during the day.
We have filmed several training sessions over the last couple of weeks in our strength and conditioning classes. As I go back and review the video that I have taken, this difference in focus and intensity becomes apparent. Although I have the camera “rolling” (iPhone with Hudl app) pretty much non-stop, it seems the same students show up on the video each time. It is easy to “catch them” doing things right, because they consistently come with a good attitude, and train with good intensity – and it shows up on the video. It also is apparent that we have some “Sasquatch” workouts going on; there are claims that these students have been spotted working out, but they are elusive and its tough to capture video evidence of their workout.
In all seriousness, the use of video in our strength and conditioning program has been a great tool. If you have an iPhone and use Hudl, I highly recommend downloading the Hudl app. The video capture is easy and uploading it is seamless. Once it us uploaded, the editing, telestrating, and viewing functions work exactly like you are used to.
