Theories vs Reality. Hoping vs Testing. Philosophy, Assessment, Methods, and Practical Application for Long Term Athletic Development
by Mark McGloughlin, Performance Training Center

Training theory is great until you get a group of 30 athletes with varying physical capacities or the client who does not fit into the ideal profile. Another issue you see is the initial intake test or assessment, and no follow ups to gauge progress or regression. To develop a world class training program your philosophy should be the anchor guiding the journey. Then principals, and methods follow to begin applying your craft. During this lecture, I will provide practical examples on what I have used to build a high performance program and culture, along with principles and methods, while providing real world results from athletes I have worked with past and present.

12:00 PM - 1:15 PM
