Venice Volleyball – Leg Circuit Test

Friday we tested on the Leg Circuit

Bodyweight Squat x 20 (Break Parallel)

Bodyweight Lunge x 20 (Lunge as long as leg length)

Bodyweight step-up x 20 (Touch head at full extension)

Jump Squat x 10

The test was one time through the circuit for time. The whole squad was under 1 minute 10 seconds which is outstanding. One girl broke the one minute barrier, even though she had to do five extra lunges. In my system this indicates they are right on course in terms of the whole program. They have been training since January 11. This week they play two pre-season games, next week the regular season starts. The challenge now will be to continue to build during the first third of the season.

(Lunge as long as leg length)

Is this a change from "lunge your body length"?

Would you recommend using the Leg Circuit in a season for a youth football player (13 yrs old)? He has never had any previous experience and has done your leg circuit progression now starting week #3.

Do you think that the girl performing the squats is at risk of potential injury?

Yes this is a picture (dictates only a position rather than movement) but wow do her feet seem ext. rotated for only BW Squats.

Again love to get inside the 'Gambetta Brain'!

What's the "breaking" criteria in breaking parallel i.e. top or bottom of thigh? Thanks.

Why does everyone analyze this stuff so much? If anyone actuallt trained people they would see nothing wrong with what is in the pics.
