Five Skill Development Concepts
by Alan Ley
Keep in mind the following five skill development concepts.
- Keep the repeats short.
- Begin doing the movement slow and build to race pace but only if you can maintain proper technique.
- Learn one new skill at a time until you get it right.
- A good rule of thumb is to try and perform the skill ‘quietly.’ Usually the more noise you make running, swimming or cycling the worse your technique is.
- Take enough rest between repeats. Skill and techniques workouts are to learn to do the movement properly – not for endurance.
