Anderson, SA. The junction boys syndrome. J Strength Cond Res 26(5): 1179–1180, 2012—Strength and conditioning training for football has become year-round in virtually all levels of play, but none so much as contemporary NCAA DI football. Football players spend more off-season months and weeks in preparation for sport than is given to in-season practice, let alone play. A present peculiarity to NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision is conditioning and off-season football training is the sole setting for non-traumatic death in its participant players. Training regimens are too often built on tradition versus based on science and place players at-risk.
