Any training is good training - or is it?
Whether you are 13 and starting out on your exciting sporting pathway or 44 and wanting to push the younger athletes – life becomes complicated. The list of things which compete for our attention is almost endless from conflicting demands of family, work, exams, partners, finances and time etc and it can be difficult to determine what the right course of action is.
For example, the ten thousand hour / ten year rule is given as a bench mark to achieve sporting success – but is this actually true; does early specialisation determine later sporting success, should a 30 or 40 year old do the same training as 20 something; what strength training should I do and what should I eat for performance?
With an objective eye and wealth of experience we are able to guide parents, budding athletes or those simply enjoying paddling through the mine field of current advice, separating hearsay and pseudoscience from the latest well founded sports science research that we know works.
