In May, 2017, I gave a guest lecture at Faculty of Kinesiology at Zagreb University in Croatia, thanks to the invitation by Cvita Gregov. The topic of my talk was Agile Periodization, a framework that I have been developing over the past few years. Since I already had the slides ready, I slightly modified them and decided to record...
‘Cool Story, Bro’ – The Fallacy of Training Systems and Conventional Wisdom on Training PrescriptionBy Paul Gamble on 25/05/2017
Let us begin with a revelation: athletes are humans not machines. If we start with such a fundamental understanding of the nature of what we are dealing with, it quickly becomes apparent that the challenge of planning and prescribing training for athletes is not conducive to a ‘machine’ approach.

To create a simple program and showcase on how to use the “puzzles” we will assume that we have 6 weeks of preparatory period and will model 4 weeks of competition period with 5 games. This is pretty realistic scenario.

Coach Wilmot introduces us to some low amplitude movements suitable for prep exercises. He discusses that while these low-level exercises are great for preparing athletes they are not necessarily aimed at eliciting explosive power. Progressing Amy to a continuous hop exercise, he demonstrates ...

This is not a scientific article, and it is not intended to be. This is a manifest, an expression of our concerns with some practices related to Sports Training. Some outrage and sarcasm might be evident throughout the text; we do not drawback from it, as we think emotions play an important role and may aid in passing the...
