Magichondria and Overweakness


Conditioning is important and a focus on GPS with soccer has hurt athlete development. One particular hamstring pull in Europe is costing a club 1.2 million euros so far and they don’t understand the limits to GPS. I have my own set of sensors and use it twice a week, but without strength in the legs, what are we observing on the iPad? We don’t have a problem with overtraining but overweakness, meaning the athlete is not strong enough to handle the energy system development. With all this talk about organelle adaptation, we forget that mitochondria is for getting better mileage, not getting more horsepower. I will share a case study later with some basic figures regarding fatigue indices, but simple power expression must be factored outside the coordinates of GPS.
