The Art of the Deload
One of my wrestlers came to the gym the other day and after a few sets he was dragging. I talked with him and he was run down. I immediately changed the entire workout from what I had planned originally and we moved on from there.
Sometimes you have to take a step back and be flexible with your training programs. Are your athletes run down, overtrained, tired, didn’t eat well today, didn’t get a lot of sleep the night?
To avoid getting injured or forcing your athletes to perform in non-optimal situations you have to know when to back off. Ask them each workout how they’re feeling and then you can determine if adjustments need to be made.
You have to know when to back-off, just like this python!
