Course participants will learn the methodology of assessing and analysing the sport that an athlete is training for; how to assess and analyze the athlete biomechanical/CNS/RoF–wise in relationship to the requirements of their sport; how to use that information to achieve training efficiency (maximized sports-results with minimal expenditure of time and energy) by choosing the correct training methods, periodization schematics and appropriate load and modality usage. This course is comprehensive in its structure and will require the participant to do a significant amount of directed learning between each session.
