"At 10,000 reps, it becomes instinctive"
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
As defensive line coach Steve Stripling reps his guys through drills during camp, he has the number 10,000 in mind, especially for the younger guys.
"When you're in camp the main goal is to be productive, meaning that you want the kids to understand what you're doing and why you're doing it and get to the point where your building habits and it becomes instinctive."
"Repetition, we talk about in terms of getting 10,000 reps before it become instinctive. So that's what we're trying to get done during camp. Multiple reps to make it become instinctive for the kid so that they don't have to think and they can just be aggressive."
