Without constraints, it’s hard to know what direction to go in. But on the other hand, if you’re too constrained it’s hard to change direction in any meaningful way. This paradigm exists in many domains of life, but today we’re discussing how it operates in training. You could conceptualise this as “top down” vs “bottom up” programming styles, but ultimately, the questions are: where do I begin and how do I adjust if it doesn’t work? If you’re an athlete, knowing the answer is how you make it to the next level, and if you’re a coach, having a system to answer both questions is the cornerstone of your success. In this episode we tackle these questions, starting philosophically, and eventually getting down to specifics and providing examples and details. Dry your eye dear listener if you haven’t hit a PR in months, today might be the start of something beautiful.
