The Process – Keep it Simple
I was reading something yesterday on simplicity at the same time I was working on a new training program for the beach volleyball players that I am working with. Here is what I came up with. As I have said many times work ≠ training. Training is work that is specific and directed. Anyone can put together a bunch of exercises and make the athletes tired and sore, that is not training. I think you really have to dial in and bore down and know the sport, the position or the event and above know the individual. It is very simple and straightforward. Start with what you want to do – the big picture. Eliminate the nice to do – the fluff, the extra exercises, the garbage miles . Focus on the need to do – that is where the results are. Last but not least be sure you know what not to do. I am convinced that putting together a training program is no more that that! Once again simplicity yields complexity.
