A common approach to strength training is to assess an athlete’s weaknesses and focus training on those points. This makes sense at some level, but it also ignores an important variable in training: the athlete’s individual strengths. It would be nice if training were a simple formula: lift X pounds, sprint Y fast, and jump Z high will equal a certain performance. But training isn’t like that. There are many ways to the same level of performance and an athlete’s strengths will most likely be what bring them to the next level. Weaknesses are important, but so are the strengths.
