Training Tools

There is an old saying that says: “If the only tool you have is a hammer, then everything becomes a nail.” There is much truth in that statement when it comes to training and rehab. My concern is not so much the lack of tools, but the plethora of tools. There are so many tools available that it is confusing. It really is not about the tools, it is the application and the process. A small selection of tools used intelligently is more valuable that many tools used indiscriminately. For example a heavy back squat can be a great exercise if used in context, but taken out of context by placing at the wrong time of the training year, career or sport, it can be counterproductive. Training is more than an exercise or a training toll. It is the application of that tool in the proper sequence and order.
