Here's a copy of a tool I am currently using to monitor training over the course of the year. Now, there are some supplements to this tool, but it gives me at least a clear view of direction. I want to be able to see the forest from the trees. Don't get me wrong, the trees are important, but if I can't see the forest, how do I know what I'm doing is making a difference. I think that's the one training dynamic that we are missing today. Implementing training elements that make a "dynamic" difference, rather than training to train. To me training to train is somewhat of a waste of time, spend more time making a difference in the athlete's performance potential. This has to be much, much more than quantifying cleans or spending hours calculating 1RMs. At least to me it is.
