We’ve been adding a lot of new talent to our awesome team in the last few months. Tonight we’ll be celebrating the newest batch of Hudlies completing three grueling weeks of Hudl training.

We asked the new crew to choose a song they would use for their stinger or the song that would be used for the made-for-TV movie about their lives. You’ll see the selection was just as varied as the new personalities we have in the office, which is awesome.

Hopefully we’re providing some new music to take you into your weekend.

We’re always looking for tools to take our program to the next level. Last year we started incorporating the GoPro camera into spring and summer practices and our 7 on 7 tournaments and it’s had a huge impact. It’s become an invaluable teaching tool for us.

The GoPro camera is lightweight and not intrusive, so it doesn’t interfere with what we’re trying to do. It gives us a glimpse into what the athlete is thinking when he’s out there, and when we’re done, we come away with a comprehensive video that lets us know where we need to work.

The offseason is a chance for athletes to recover physically and psychologically and to work on improving their performance. The structure of your offseason football workouts plays a big role in reaching your strength goals.

The main goal of an offseason football program is to increase the body’s ability to stabilize and remain in a controlled posture. As the season progresses, muscular imbalances can occur from injuries or from continually cutting in the same direction. This can lead to weakness in underused areas of the body and injury.

It’s easy to get bored with the same offseason workout. We like to switch things up by going through a circuit. Sometimes we’ll use them at the beginning of a workout for warm-up, or sometimes at the end to add an element of competitiveness.

If your warm-up has gotten stale, here are some exercises to throw in the mix for lower body strength training days.

Last Thursday we officially rolled out support for our Hudl Coaches Remote and the DSV Commando ES remote on the Mac platform. For our coaches that want to sit back and control their video and presentations in Hudl with one hand and your mouse far away, you have even more options now.

We’ve supported the Smart Pointer on the Mac platform for a couple years now, but we know sometimes you want a bigger remote that is customized to the way coaches watch video. With the popularity of Macs growing (they are even sprouting up left and right here at the Hudl office) we want to make sure the experience of using Hudl on a Mac is silky smooth.

Here are a few helpful links related to using remote controls with Hudl.

Lincoln, Neb. – Hudl has made its second acquisition of a top competitor in less than a year as it announced its purchase of APEX on Tuesday morning.

“This acquisition is another big step for Hudl,” said David Graff, Hudl’s CEO. “APEX is a well-respected competitor and we are excited to bring their customers into the Hudl family.”

The acquisition will provide coaches more teams to exchange video with and expose a broader pool of athletes for recruiters. Last July, Hudl acquired its top competitor, Digital Sports Video (DSV), to nearly double its client base and gain control as the top video editing company in the nation.
