The coach's role is education, not dependence. A coach should empower athletes to the point they are comfortable adjusting protocols and methods to their own needs. Any program must focus on four key areas.
- Health - Are the movements safe for you to comfortably perform? If you're injured, you're on the sidelines. Athletes should NEVER become injured as a result of training - that's insane! A training program should prepare an athlete to perform more effectively, not prevent or hinder them from competing.
- Functionality - Does your program address the physical demands of your sport? Can you perform the movements that are required in your sport?
- Injury Prevention & Longevity- Will the program prolong your career, or is it so intense, (and inappropriate) that there could be long term consequences from training? A training program must address the demands of the future as well as the present.
- Power Development - Will the program make you a faster, more powerful athlete? Are you performing explosive movements? Are complex, power movements a part of your routine? The older we get, the more rapidly we lose the ability to produce power. Power development and maintenance must be a central part of any athletes program. You can't expect to hit a 300 yard drive when the rest of your life is spent in second and third gear.
Athletes should develop the absolute simplest program that meets the physical demands of their sport.
