The twice-a-week OTA schedule is throwing some curveballs into the normal offseason strength and conditioning program.
With practices now two days a week through June, the usual four-time-per-week offseason regimen has been broken up and shortened. Players are now working out on the two off days between practices (this week, on Monday and Wednesday) before receiving Fridays and the weekends off. While conditioning drills have been curtailed to save the players’ legs for practices, the off-day workouts feature plenty of weightlifting and agility work as the Seahawks seek to “aggressively maintain strength levels and keep up flexibility,” head strength and conditioning coach Chris Carlisle said.
“We’ve got to continue our work, because we’re still in offseason mode,” Carlisle said. “We can’t back down.”
