Some Training Do’s and Don’ts


Some Training Do’s and Don’ts
With the young developing athlete – Keep it very FUNdamental.

The can do and want to do are quite different, do not be a hurry.

The female athlete – Recognize the differences and coach the differences.

Training is an accumulation of prior work both positively and negatively

With the elite athlete – Recognize what got them to that level and build upon that.

Recovery is important only if the training that has been done is stressful enough to necessitate recovery

Work with purpose and direction

Train fast to be fast.

Use it or lose it – Law of Reversibility
