How do we get coaches to understand that work does not equal training? Anyone can do work, but does it have a direction and a purpose. There are no magic workouts; a good workout must be in the context of the overall training program. One person’s fancy is another person’s folly. Understand principles, know your athletes, and understand the demands of the sport. Directed work is training. A well thought out training programs may not always produce predictable results but if it does not you will know why. Have a plan, execute the plan, evaluate and adjust it as necessary.
