We have a special guest today, strength coach Brijesh Patel from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. Brijesh was an early PUSH user - he joined our PUSH Labs beta program at the beginning of 2014. As an experienced strength & conditioning coach, his feedback was invaluable. Keep reading today to learn from a seasoned collegiate coach - someone that has worked in the field for many years.
As a coach who has kept one foot in the world of sports science research and the other in hands on training, I understand the importance of textbook quantifiable means and methods for creating an overload to spur continued adaptation. That said, I also recognize the benefits of having flexibility to manipulate training variables and having alternative methods of applying and monitoring overload. This helps with adjusting to varying real-world issues and logistical concerns.
