When you think seriously about sports, sooner or later simple questions like these may come up:
- What should I do while training?
- How often should I train?
- What is the impact and when will I come up with my peak performance?
- Accumulated stress and fitness, what is the right balance?
- Hours and miles, but is there any smarter ways to improve my fitness for this particular target?
- Pratice is good but is mine a good practice?
- Can you show me how to do it nicely, like pros?
- When gears are to be blamed?
Innovations in sports training is now accessible to a larger audience. Information about best pratices and pitfalls is widely spreaded around the internet making it easier to forge your own opinion around key questions:
- what’s efficient,
- what’s safe,
- what has workd for the others
- what’s wrong.
Common sense is very usefull most of the time, but if you are looking at marginal increases in your development roadmap, a deeper analysis with some solid knowledge or new insights in fields like neuro science, sport medicine and physiology, psychology, body metabolism, nutrition will bring invaluable progress in how to get trained efficiently and help you reach your goals.
Here is a quick list of such innovations in training:
- Tracking your workload (GPS, HR, nike + ipod, powersong, Garmin, Sporttraks)
- Shapping your workload
- Visualizing the efficient technique (golf, tennis, swimming)
- Planning for maximum performance
- Ski and windsurf (slalom with flex sticks et short board)
- Revers à deux mains au Tennis.
- Breakthrough behaviors or techniques
Let me share with you my favourite source of inspiration in sports innovation.
