"We have to stop and think and be realistic with ourselves about how many times we are actually dealing with freaks who are both completely advanced trained and elite level athletes."
In today’s edition of My Thoughts Monday Dr. Bryan Mann discusses preparedness with us, and gives advices to coaches on how and when to look at using more advanced methods with their athletes.
He starts out with anecdotical examples as to why, in his opinion, simpler may be better when it comes to developing many of the athlete's we work with. There needs to be reasons for coaches to implement more advanced means other than just because we, as coaches, may be bored.
He then touches upon exact work he's doing with athlete's at the present moment, along with where some adaptations to program can come from when athlete's start to move forward.
He finishes off discussing the role of testing in all of this when it comes to moving the athlete forward and gives some examples of tests he's used, along with why he selected these tests, and how they drive decisions.
