Logical HIIT solutions in professional soccer

Following the recent post and article (1) on high-speed running (HSR) management, I have since written a second short opinion piece for Sport Performance & Science Reports (2), where I offer further guidelines for coaches and practitioners for programming HSR and MW sequences in relation to technical training content and match schedules (i.e., different weekly microcycles).

Daily morning rituals: winning or ruining the day?

Daily morning rituals: winning or ruining the day?

Successful entrepreneurs often tout the importance that daily morning rituals make to achieving their exceptional outcomes [1]. Those routines, conducted from 4 to 6am every morning for example, are claimed to reduce stress levels, make them happier as well as more productive. Rituals may include fasted exercise in their own home-based gym, meditation, self-reflection and day planning, topped off with a special diet or supplement. Since such morning habits are reportedly used by highly successful people, the ‘best practice’ approach suggests that embracing those should help others to become successful too. An alternative way to approach the question however, may be to ask whether having morning routines is in fact the chicken or the egg? Put differently, maybe it’s not the routines that make people successful, but rather that their success allows them to have the liberty and opportunity to have such routines? Put another way – are such routines enabled because you already make a few million each year, and have a bunch of people running your business for you?

Content is king, but context is God

To open this blog post series, I thought I might start by discussing some of aspects that are often overlooked in sport science and coaching courses with respect to daily life in the trenches of elite sport. Most people who have worked in the elite performance setting for more than a few years would agree, that what makes them successful (or not) often has little to do with what they learned at school.
