Racehorses not workhorses. This will offend most coaches but it’s a fact. Horses that plow a field all day can’t win a race. Too many coaches take thoroughbreds and force them to plow fields. If you want a fast team (and who doesn’t?), treat all your horses like race horses. Train them for speed, not work. — Tony Holler
Keep that in mind when programming and training athletes that play sports where speed is critical…spoiler, that’s most all sports.
