- Remember what the main point of the strength and conditioning practitioner is in your sport (it is ALWAYS a supplement – but what for exactly!): you don’t need to focus a lot on classical hypertrophy, random mash-ups of different strength modalities, or even hyper specific power training (aka. too much Olympic weightlifting focus). Learn, and adapt to what your athlete and sport needs.
- When working with your athletes, try to find out FIRST what is ALREADY working for them. Pick them up where they are at – and THEN go forward with figuring out what they want to achieve in the long-term, and help them.
- If you have athletes with HIGH SKILL and LOW PHYSICAL abilities, don’t overthink and over do it! Simply teaching the idea of basic value (and minimal time investment!) of strength & conditioning could lead to massive improvements in such individuals.
