Max Effort Upper for Offensive and Defensive Linemen
Safe execution of max-effort training comes down to two factors; properly planned training and properly educated players. You want your programming to expose athletes to different levels of volume and intensity while teaching correct execution of the various exercises. As long as these bases are covered, max effort training is no more dangerous than any other training method.
Do not fear max-effort training; fear having weak players who get embarrassed on the playing field.
