Before you test, train, drill and practice, ask yourself — will it make the boat go faster?
In his TED Talk, Olympic Rower, Ben Hunt talks about only doing things that will make the boat go faster. You can see a three minute excerpt here.
We often see athletes preparing in ways that have no carry-over whatsoever to their sport or development and may even produce negative results. Don’t get caught up doing what everyone else is doing which may or may not be appropriate for you or your team.
Ask These 3 Questions
- Are we good at the fundamentals?
- Are you trying to get game fit in a month? It never works and often ends up contributing to overuse injuries.
- Are we recovered to do the next thing?
Whether you’re planning for today, the week or the season, ask yourself — Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?
Have A Great Week!
