Moderation is Mundane and Balance is Boring


The purpose of my John Broz interview blog was to create balance in Strength and Conditioning. I am not advocating max efforts daily for elite sprinters, but it’s nice to see hard training now instead of the corrective plague we see now. Some are killing off exercises with fear mongering, some say doing something daily in megadoses is the answer, but I think moderation is the answer for many. The programs I see that seem to produce results consistently are balanced and don’t have too much uniqueness or extreme beliefs. Athletes will be developed from extreme programs from time to time, but how many were lost from injury or failed adaptation? Like the pharaohs having wonderful pyramids, we forget how many people suffered along the way for a handful of individuals. Growth requires a delicate balance with athletes, and what many coaches find that patience yields the fastest results.
