Abstract

COLLEGIATE FOOTBALL PLAYERS RISK AND OFTEN SUSTAIN INJURIES DURING THE COMPETITIVE FOOTBALL SEASON. ALTHOUGH INJURY MAY SIDELINE ATHLETES, IT DOES NOT HAVE TO ADVERSELY AFFECT THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE IN-SEASON RESISTANCE TRAINING PROGRAM. IN FACT, STRENGTH TRAINING DURING THE REHABILITATION PHASE IS CRITICAL. INJURED ATHLETES WHO EFFICIENTLY USE TIME SPENT AWAY FROM TEAM PRACTICE AND COMPETITION, AND CONTINUE TO PREPARE FOR GAME DAY, WILL HAVE A MORE EFFECTIVE RETURN TO THE PLAYING FIELD.
