Bill Sands on specificity of training

Dr. Sands feels many coaches are filling training plans with exercises that do not contribute towards the final goal.

“You need to do those exercises that are important for transfer to your sport. And not much else.“

Unnecessary training is a waste of time and may even contribute to overuse injury.

The number of training hours should cycle over the season and even over the week. Recovery should be better planned.
