Why should or shouldn´t I weight train during my sports season?

In-season Weights

You need to schedule some weight training even during sports season. Especially for women athletes, just doing your sport won't maintain strength, and you will need that toward the end of the season. But keep these workouts minimal, as hard training will break you down further than your sport already does. One set of 15 to failure, per body part, should be enough for maintenance during the season.
