SAME SCORE, DIFFERENT NEEDS

Another article summary taken from my files this time from Rugby strength coach Kier Wenham-Flatt, who I've discusses a bunch of times on this blog.

This article of his looked at how athletes can get the same score on a particular test but get it in different ways, which you need to know, because it will then dictate how you train them going forward.

The points I took down were:

- 2 athletes can get the same score but in different ways

- In the Yo-Yo test they might both get 19.5 but athlete 1 spends most of his time below his anaerobic threshold but when he goes over it he dies in the arse very quickly

- Athlete 2 is raises above his anaerobic threshold pretty early but can hang on for a long time

- Athlete 1 is an aerobic based athlete and athlete 2 is anaerobic based

- You have bulldogs (A1) and greyhounds (A2)

- Physically there will be variations between how well athletes use the stretch shortening cycle and stiffness, what part of the force/velocity curve they are comfortable at producing force, the development of various strength qualities, how quickly they can develop force, heir ability to relax quickly, the mechanisms of the sporting skill, aerobic/anaerobic energy production balance and conscious/unconscious central nervous system tolerance of fatigue

- Don't be average at everything, be excellent at 1 or a small amount of things

- Coaches are judged to raise the performance of the individual, not the group

- Look at the qualities of each position as they may not be the same

- The reason you suck at 1 test might be why you dominate another test
