For this week’s episode we sent out a request for listener questions and you responded with a suggestions on a wide range of topics. We tackle them all head on, covering plyometrics, in-season straining, transferring drills, work-life balance and more.
We are hoping to make listener questions a recurring segment on shows. You can send your questions to us via Facebook, Twitter (@hmmrmedia), Instagram, email, or the comments below. To kick things off, we took several listener questions this week. Here are a few highlights:
Games are a great way to integrate jumps in training and develop robustness. Click To Tweet A foul is a foul. Who cares how far it is? @Nick_g_garcia Click To Tweet What drills work well? Just watch it and see if the movements match up. @bingisser Click To Tweet A common mistake for peaking is to back off on everything; sometimes you still need intensity. Click To Tweet When you have passion, work-life balance is not as hard. You will find a way to make it work. Click To Tweet Focus on the short-term. If you do things with passion, you will end up where you want to go. Click To Tweet
