Practice Variability – A Framework for Coaches

0

For those of you that have been following the progress of Nick’s long jump training, you know that his primary issue last year was fouling. He had quite a few jumps over 7.65m but they were all fouls. So this year, one of the main foci of training was improving accuracy at the board. Last year, we had used some practice variability but I think it was incorporated too inconsistently for the gains to become ‘competition stable.’ For those interested in understanding what we’re doing, here’s an interesting lecture by Dr. Wu who explains some of the concepts that have been incorporated in to Nick’s training.
