It's all about hydration, scheduling your drills/work intelligently and getting enough rest. 2-a-days in heat shouldn't be a problem if the coaches have half a brain.


To expand on that a bit...if it were me, I'd schedule all my conditioning work early, well before the heat of the day. Then come back for skills/drills early in the afternoon...the type of work where the reps are limited before switching in another unit or players (giving those "out" of the drill some rest and time to get water). It's a question of whether the coaches are of the mind to "toughen up" their athletes (stupid in mega-heat/mega-humidity IMO) or whether they're there to train them to be better football players. I just don't view the heat/humidity as that big an obstacle if approached reasonably.
