With specialized athletes playing at a high level, consistency remains key. When in season, these athletes already have high practice and playing volumes. 

Any trip onto various YouTube fitness pages yields a plethora of videos demonstrating every variation of every exercise that you could possibly think of. With all of these exercises shoved in your face, how could you possibly provide your athletes with the best program possible? It is important for coaches working in team sports to note that those who work in the private sector produce the majority of these videos.

These personal trainers and private sector coaches often NEED to provide novelty to their clients in order to keep them coming back. This is not a shot at those in the private sector, it’s simply something to consider when viewing these videos. I argue that for those of us working in team sports, consistency in programming reigns supreme. Progressive Overload, Why Consistency is King.
