It’s Not Rocket Science

0

Athletic development is about optimizing training to enhance performance in the competitive arena. The basic concepts are quite simple. Simplicity yields complexity; you don’t have to try to make it complicated. That is why being a generalist is so important; it will allow you to make relationships that the specialist because of their narrower vision will not see. Sophisticated technology and computer algorithms are part of a much bigger picture. Over reliance on tools and technology will not get the job done. You need to use your experience to ask key questions and interpret the data. Without that, high tech tools are no more than random number generators that confuse us rather guide us.
