I have a friend who is 5’8” and weighs 165 pounds, I am 5’11” and 195 we cannot wear the same size clothing. That should be obvious, then why do we do that with training. We take one training program and use it as a universal prescription, in other words we make one size fit all. It does not work. It may be convenient to use with a large group but because it is convenient does not make it correct. The challenge is always to make the training fit the athlete and the demands of the sport not to make the athlete fit to the training. Sometimes to achieve that requires only subtle changes and other times it is major changes. It is important to never lose sight of the objective of the training – to get each athlete ready to perform at their best in competition on the appointed day at the appointed time. To do that we must train adaptable athletes not athletes who are adapted to one method of training. One size never fits all.
