Keep Training In-Season to Improve

Training often takes a back seat once the season begins.  This is a huge mistake and a quick way to lose any gains you made in your off-season program.  Not only should you lift to maintain, you should be looking to improve as the season goes on.  However, soreness is never a good thing during the season.  Eric Cressey just wrote a great post on some great lifts to use in-season to limit soreness.  These lifts limit eccentric stress which is more likely to cause soreness.  One note is to make sure these exercises are included in your off-season training as the season is not a time to add new exercises as that also is a recipe for soreness.
