I am attaching the link to the results from the USATF Southwest Open Regional held at Rice June 16th, 2012.
John Godina is coming to Rice to conduct his phase 1 throws coaches course on March 25th. Click here for info.
It is so easy to show up and to repeat what you always do. To mindlessly slunk through the same warm up, to perform the drills and exercises the same way that you always have. If you do that you will only at best marginally improve. Athletes need to bring an awareness to practice. They need to continually challenge themselves to improve. If they don't they will wallow at plateau levels. Granted to bring this kind of intensity to practice everyday can be very difficult, so I challenge my athletes to conjure up this level on neuromuscular days (generally Monday and Wednesdays or Thursdays depending on the week and time of year). It's amazing what 3 hours of focus a week can accomplish!
The 80/20 Rule follows the idea that in a large system 80% of the effects are generated by 20% of the variables. This ratio is ubiquitous. 80% of companies profits are brought in by 20% of their customers. 80% of your time on your smart phone is spent on 20% of the features, and most importantly for us as athletes or coaches 80% of progress comes from 20% of the effort.
