From the webcam today, I watched a student walk from Hogan up to Luth. From his size looked to be hoops frontcourt or a lineman. From his gait, he appeared to be a bit hobbled. Maybe headed to Luth for treatment.
Using chains increases the weight as each link is raised off the floor, adding weight to the overall load. Bands impart greater resistance as they stretch and build tension. The benefits behind this type of training are numerous and extend across various types of sports.
Adding chains to the bar on a squat gradually increases the load as you move from the bottom of the squat (chains on floor = no load) to the top (top = heaviest, because all chain links are off the floor). What this means, is that your simply maximizing your force output into the ground.
Players back again for July session this weekend with first workout being Monday, July 12th.
I believe it's 3 weeks and then back home before camp starts on August 9th.
Correct. Players reported for the second conditioning program which began yesterday and runs until July 29. Players are off from July 29 until August 5 when they report to campus with preseason camp officially beginning on Friday, August 6. This gives them 4 full weeks of practice prior to their season opener at UConn.
That week 0 game for UConn is a two edged sword. First it gives our coaches insight into their opening opponent and a week to prepare for our game with them. However, it does give UConn a game under their belts and a chance to develop their own teamwork - especially when coming back after such a long period without games against an opponent.
I believe that works in HC's favor with Coach Cheney and his staff on our side, but I confess I do not know much about UConn's current coaching staff.
The team concludes its summer conditioning program on Wednesday of this week. They are then off until August 5th when the entire team is scheduled to report to campus for summer camp, with first practices beginning on August 6th. Just 40 days until the opener @ UConn.
