Houston’s Jason Russell, “No Matter Your Philosophy, the Goal is Movement Efficiency”

Jason is the strength trainer for UH Men’s and Women’s basketball.


As a profession, we can’t be weary of something so heavily based on the science in which we believe. I’m a former college football player and thrower, and I’ve spent most my career working with football. The last thing I want to do is abandon Olympic lifting and squatting. I believe in those tools FAR too much to feel like they’re counter-productive to what we’re trying to accomplish. The toughest piece of feedback I’ve had to confront is that the guys I love to train the most already excel at these movements.
