THE MANUAL VOL. 4, is the fourth publication from Central Virginia Sport Performance. In THE MANUAL VOL. 4, you will find ten unique chapters from ten world class individuals who have had an immense impact on everything we have done, and will continue to do here, at Central Virginia Sport Performance. As with everything that we produce, we are hopeful that this book will provide useful and applicable information to not only assist the readers in helping their athletes perform better, but also drive better conversations between practitioner. Whether that is through developing a positive “culture” (Chapter 6), looking deeper into means of training rotation with athletes (Chapter 5), or even diving deeper into sleep and its impact on athletes ability to adapt to the training stimulus we coaches are hoping to provide (Chapter 10) we hope that at least one of these chapters can assist the great coaches who have been involved with CVASP in helping their athletes reach their goals.
