Early in my career as a coach I was given the advice that to be successful I needed to use the 6 P’s of COACHING
Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance
Using the same alliteration Here the the 6 P’s of Essential Training.
Progression – It is a building process where each step is dependent on the step before. Learn it RIGHT the first time
Practical – Get training and preparation done within the context of the time, personnel and facilities available.
Personal – The training must fit the individual; one size does not fit all. Above all make the training yours, own it.
Planning – Be proactive, planning allows you to bring the future into the present so you can do something about it.
Practice – This is where the rubber meets the road; it is where the plan is put into action on a daily basis. Without purposeful directed practice it is impossible to improve.
and above all
Patience – It takes time to grow as an athlete and as a coach. Allow for adaptation and growth. It just takes time.
