Dr Dave Joyner MD one of our GAIN Faculty members shared with us the Paterno Rule during his presentation. Dave was an All-American lineman played for Paterno. The Paterno rule is simple- You remember the last thing you do, a very simple statement with complex implications for both cognitive and motor learning. My good friend and colleague, Gary Winkler shared with me a similar concept. His idea was that the last thing you do in a training session will be how you will begin the next training session. The implication being that if you want them to start the next session hammered and beat up then end the current session hammered and beat up. I always try to end a training session with something light quick and explosive.
