What’s are cornerstones and why should every coach have their own set?
During the past 17 years I’ve condensed my cornerstones of training down to five key elements – if an athlete or team wants to work with me this is what they can expect from my programmes:
Quality – Develop fundamental movement skills that focus on quality of movement before quantity.
Functional – The level of functionality is related to the performance outcome that you are coaching.
Efficient – Develop programmes and training sessions that use the minimum ‘dose’ but deliver the maximum ‘effect’.
Continuity – Planned variations are essential to elicit adaptations, develop programmes with both short and long term aims in mind.
Recovery – Recovery and regeneration is a fundamental component of an integrated performance training programme.
