Making training sticky and meaningful, never a grind

Start with the basics and never stray far from the basics. This is the foundation of sustained excellence.

Don’t try to replicate the stress of the sport in training, instead prepare for the stress of the sport.

Have a plan, execute the plan, and constantly evaluate the plan.

You must know the process to be able to focus on the process.

Coach the person not the athlete.

Never allow equipment or facilities to dictate your training.

Teach skills not drills, drills are not skills.

Build on strengths and minimize weaknesses.

Train fast to be fast. You are what you train to be.

Adaptation is not just about time; it is the timing of the appropriate training stimulus to achieve the desired training response.

You compete the way you train. Understand the demands of the sport and train to exceed those demands. Therefore don’t try to replicate the game in training, distort it.

It is never a grind. It is a session by session, day by day, week by week, month by month and year to year growth opportunity represented by instant feedback. To be the a champions you must be a champions in practice, the challenge of being is a champion in practice is exciting and challenging – never a grind.
