As a coach, we are always learning new tools, apps, techie gadgets, and new training methods. So many coaches stick what they learned in class but don’t change with the latest. We are constantly learning from the science of pro athletes; what works and doesn’t work in training for today’s athlete. And training older athletes. Science keeps changes which makes learning new stuff interesting. Now as an athlete, we are constantly learning about ourselves; our bodies adapting to the training; and how we should be productive with the training. Being productive is listening to our bodies on how it reacts the workouts, mentally aware of the environment, and scheduling the workouts within our life (family and work). Science is an evolution as an athlete’s body! Don’t stop learning or you will miss the boat!
