There are many exercises available some good and effective other pure rubbish. How do you choose? You can’t do them all. Ask yourself these questions when you see a new exercise that you are considering using in your training program. What is context? Where will you use it? Is it an absolute need to do exercise or is just nice to do? (Nice to do exercises often just make you tired but don’t make you better.) Does the exercise do what you want it to do? Does it do something better than you are already doing? Is it congruent with the whole training system? Does the athlete relate the need for the exercise? As a note in the last training year I have added eight new exercises to my training menus and removed three.
