One of the unique aspects of the Bigger Faster Stronger Total Program, and the one that can radically turn around a struggling athletic program to winning program, is the concept of unification. Unification is the idea that all high school athletes, and most college athletes for that matter, should adhere to the same training philosophy. This means that regardless of sport, all athletes should perform the same core weight training exercises, the same speed, and agility exercises, and the same flexibility and plyometric exercises – and this applies to all sports, from football players to basketball players to swimmers.
For middle school athletes, we also offer the BFS Readiness Program, which focuses on improving overall athleticism and developing perfect technique in all the major weight training exercises.
To this day, at 30 years old I still follow the BFS system exactly, and it still works! I’ve never had a football injury - heck, I’ve never even missed a practice. I give 100 percent credit to the BFS program and my willingness to follow it, so I just wanted to give a huge ‘thank you’ to you and your team at BFS. I’m a living testament that it does change lives and it does work at every level."

You need to know exactly what to do, exactly how to do it and exactly when to do it. BFS allows you to be perfect in every way.
YOUR FIRST STEPS TO GREATNESS: WATCH - LEARN - DO!
Our psychology-of-success program asks, "On a scale of one to ten, why not choose to Be an 11?" With this philosophy, we ask students to rate things according to the following scale and question. For example, in regard to studying, we ask students, "On a scale from one to ten, how would you rate your homework study plan?" And then, "In order to make it an ELEVEN, what would have to take place?"
We’ve applied this philosophy to athletic training, using it as the foundation of the essential steps in making an Eleven student-athlete:
STEP 1: BFS EDUCATION.
To get started with BFS, you first need to purchase the BFS Total Program Readiness Package, which will include the BFS Total Program Book, the Be an 11 Guidebook, a Readiness Log Book, an Exercise Instruction DVD, and a Subscription to BFS Magazine. If it’s true that knowledge is power, then the BFS program is powerful indeed!
STEP 2: PERFECT TECHNIQUE.
Spend 4 to 8 weeks working on perfecting your technique in all aspects of the BFS Program (No weight or resistance).
- Perform the Dot Drill, once a day – minimum
- Perform Core Lifts, 2 a day, 3 days a week.
- Perform Auxiliary Lifts, 1 to 3 per day (if time allows)
- Perform BFS 1-2-3-4 Flexibility Program (Once a day = 15 minutes)
Plyometrics & Jump Training
(Read BFS Total Program Book and Learn Theory and Concepts of Plyometrics)
- Perform Sprint Technique workout, twice a week (8 Point System)
STEP 3: TAKE CHARGE.
STEP 4: FOCUS & FINISH.
Graduate from the BFS Readiness Program. Make sure your graduation lifts are performed with a BFS Certified Coach spotting. Graduation Requirements are:
2 Sets of 10 Reps
|145 pounds||105 pounds|
2 Sets of 10 Reps
90% of body weight
90% of body weight
2 Sets of 5 Reps
90% of body weight
90% of body weight
STEP 5: CONTINUAL PROGRESS.
Start the BFS Set-Rep System. The strength portion of the BFS program, off-season, is set up on four-week cycles, with each week consisting of core lifts performed on specific days. The cycles consist of the following set/rep cycles: 3x3, 5x5, 5-4-3-2-1, and 10-8-6 (or 4-4-2 for the power clean and Hex bar deadlift). During the season, the same set/rep cycles are used with minor changes, and the workout is performed only twice a week. This variety ensures that the athlete is able to continually break personal records, even during the season – there are no plateaus in the Bigger Faster Stronger Total Program.
On the Tuesday and Thursday program, athletes have the option of performing the BFS Plyometric Routine, Sprint Workout, Agility Drills or the Conditioning Program.
STEP 6: WIN.
Reach your goals with consistent and intense In-Season and Off-Season Training. Utilize all aspects of the Bigger Faster Stronger Total Program and watch your athletic performance increase to immeasurable heights.
STEP 7: PLAN FOR THE FUTURE.
As you improve, compare your progress with the BFS standards (Personal Power Ranking) we have established – and exceed all of them! And while you’re doing so, perfect your sports technique, as well as your strength and conditioning technique, with InMotion Video Analysis Software. Last but not least make sure to eat like an Eleven Athlete, check out our Nutrition and Recovery for more information, as well as our Magazine Archives for articles about the importance of great nutrition.
