Each training session is a means to an end not an end unto itself. The goal of training is build and grow the athletes capabilities not to bury the athlete in every workout. There are a plethora of commercial programs (well hyped and marketed) built on a “boot camp” mentality that would lead you to believe that training was about putting you over the edge in every session. Training is not about puking, extreme soreness, or ending up in the hospital on a kidney dialysis machine as a badge of honor. It is not a series of random illogical exercises designed to get you tired. This is the nonsense of training, it borders on abuse. A general prescription for exercise where one size fits is a formula for failure and injury. Before you get trapped into this nonsense take a step back and logically review your goals and aspirations. Remind yourself what training is and is not. Use training as a means to an end. Training accumulates, it is more than a series of series of exercises it is a systematic approach to blending all elements of performance in a logical system designed to get the athlete to competition fit, fast, strong, explosive and technically proficient ready to thrive in the competitive enviorment.
