Insane training


Insanity is doing the same training year after year with the same people and expecting different results. Look around and see how prevalent this is. There is no thought to progression, advancing training age, and adaptation. Each training year, for that matter each training cycle, should be a logical extension of the previous cycle and lead into the next cycle. Progression is not linear. I am convinced that is the genesis of many of the injury problems you see in professional sports. The programs NEVER change. That is the problems, what is the solution? The solution is rather simple, look at the individual. Work to meet individual needs. This can be done in the context of a large group. More on this in future posts.
