Thinking outside the square
How often do you sit and reflect on your training programs? Far too often we are that busy that we dont reflect and thus without reflection we just continue down the same path. I am not into change for change sake but I do believe if we did stop and think more we could be more creative and than get better results. There is alot of great information for us to learn from but if you know your physiology, you analyse the requirements of the sport and you are aware of your athletes strengths and weaknessess why not try to be a leader rather than a follower. I have recently taken the time to watch a variety of sports and speak to coaches involved in these sports and than by reflecting on this information it is possible to come up with something innovative and most importantly effective for your sport. Many sports have not advanced in their athletic development just because they havent taken the time to reflect.
