The other 98%


What does that mean? It is the 98% solution. I keep running into people looking for that last 2%. It dawned on me yesterday that most of these people had not really taken care of the first 98%. Instead of looking for that small edge fully exploit the biggest part of the training puzzle. There is so much there that people overlook or just simply do not pay attention to. Pay attention to the 98% and fully exploit all aspects of it and you will see quantum leaps in performance. Little things like consistency in the approach to training, focus on the task at hand, living a lifestyle away from training commensurate with excellence are all obvious things that will help to expand and exploit the 98%. No tricks, no shortcuts, no secrets, just good directed training that addresses all components of athletic development.
