In almost every sport, people talk about so called “natural born talents”. Quite often, these “super talents” become good in their own particular sport, without their coaches or even themselves truly being able to explain specifically “why”.
Interestingly, many super talents are also accelerated developers, meaning young people, whose physical development have come earlier than it has for most of their fellow-agers. It is also interesting that many accelerated developers quit their promising carreers early – either because of frustration when the others are catching up physically, or because of way too much training in early years, and the following overtraining.
With this seminar, we will leave the overused path of selecting “talents”, and hoping that they will survive until they are good enough to win. This seminar is about taking the average athlete and bringing this person to absolute top level – in a way that enables them to have a healthy life after their carreers.
So, the key question we will deal with is: How do you make an average athlete faster than average?
We will deal with this question on the basis of rowing as a competitive sport – in depth and in detail, yet logically structured and easily understandable.
In this seminar, we plan to cover a comprehensive strategic build-up process for athletes from zero to top level.
We will also share our experience with rehabilitation of injured athletes, and their return to high level training.
