My Thoughts Monday #171- Jay DeMayo- Has the Pendulum Swung Too Far…Again?

“If we are being entrusted for the physical preparation of the student athletes, or of the young people we get to work with, shouldn’t we allow the coaches, and shouldn’t we provide them the trust to develop the special preparation for their athletes?”


This My Thoughts Monday is brought to you by Vald Performance. Vald’s constant drive to help coaches find better information to drive more educated directions is second to none. Check out this week’s Metric Minute and make sure to go check out all their great products at:

In our world of sport performance there have been multiple pendulum swings. From the Olympic lifts, to Husker Power, to functional training, the list goes on and on. One that has been most active of late is the importance of specificity. In this week’s My Thoughts Monday I share some of the reflecting I have been doing of late when it comes to programming, and why I think we may have gone too far down the “specific” rabbit hole, and why this may be one of the things limiting us as a profession by preventing us to develop a true “role” in sport.
