Balancing Biomotor Development


Balancing the 5 biomotor abilities is one of the most overlooked aspects of planning training and one of the more difficult concepts to get a full grasp on. Training plans should be developed that are focused enough to provide a stimulus that improves the characteristics necessary to achieve high levels of performance while still addressing the other ‘less sexy’ biomotor abilities that serve as support mechanisms for continued development in the more ‘specific’ biomotor abilities. I personally try to design training plans that address each biomotor ability to some degree every day. The method, intensity, and volume devoted to each individual biomotor ability should be dictated by the goals of the particular day and placed in to context of the entire micro and mesocycle.
