Yesterday I highlighted the nonsense I have been seeing in training. Today lets talk about some common sense in training. Any effective training program is based on sound fundamental principles. There must be a clear progression. No workout can or should stand-alone. No component of training should be trained in isolation. All components of training should be trained at all times in different proportions based on developmental level of athlete, phase of the training, and training emphasis. Training should always be in context. Adapt the training to the athlete and make it sport appropriate. It is pretty simple and straightforward; no sensational or extraordinary methods just consistent well planned directed work. Training accumulates and takes time; there are no quick fixes.
