In this episode Gerry takes time to tackle one of the most misunderstood topics of sports performance training: conditioning.
To start the episode he gets to the faulty understanding of what it takes to properly condition athletes and why using "mental toughness," tests can be an ineffective way to prepare athletes. In addition, he explains the mistake of training "speed," but not giving an athlete full recovery, and why you don't have to train long durations at high intensities to be "in-shape," for team sports.
After explaining how we can properly educate and prepare coaches to fully understand the basics of energy systems, this podcast also details the three main energy systems and which are predominantly used in team-sports. Lastly, Gerry details some suggestions on how to train each one practically and effectively.
