Show Notes

  1. Context and content matter: you can cover a lot of ground with advanced scientific knowledge and cross-over experience from other sports. But to really get into it, you need to GET DEEP into the sport you are working on.
  2. Training your weaknesses might not be as much of a good idea as you think it is – at least when it comes to physiology and metabolism. Consider profiling your athletes to figure out whether they prefer more basic endurance training, threshold/mixed sessions, or very high-intensity interval training.
  3. Always start with the demands of a sport, but when you are thinking about those, consider the demands of the COMPETITION in detail – days, hours, preparation etc.!
