Individualization of training is a tricky animal. In the video below, I am using framework outlined in Three Different Aspects of Training Load Monitoring and provide some thoughts on individualization, especially the fact that individualization can and should be applied on multiple scales, and just because you are using relative training intensities (e.g. %1RM, %MAS) or relative training load (e.g. volume of running expressed as game running performance) to create equal playing field, doesn’t mean individualization is over.
I also provide the two different viewpoints on individualization:
“Individualization is creating “equal playing field”, or making sure everyone is training at similar individual potential…”
“Individualization is making sure one is doing what it takes to reach his full potential while avoiding the downsides….”
