- 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.
- 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.
- 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.!
