“I expected to see more exercises…”
Some athletes will come into this program looking for video links to a hundred different exercises.
This speaks to one of the biggest myths in all of strength and conditioning: “The more different kinds of exercises you do, the better you’ll get.” This is simply NOT true.
Which leads me to this: Variety is greatly overrated. Once the shiny new-ness of an exercise wears off and you’re “bored” with it because it isn’t “new” anymore, you’re forced to get deeper into it…or bail out and just move on to something else “new” and “exciting.” I’d argue the best choice is the former, not the latter.
It’s NOT about having a hundred different exercises to work on, it’s about learning basic skills and progressing them step by step. This is how elites train – digging deeper into the fundamentals to wring the most out of each!
