Good training is good training

I was having a conversation recently with another strength coach, and during the conversation the similarities between programs came up.  He said, “You know, any way you look at it a squat is a squat.  We train the same things that USC does…It’s all about taking the same tools and applying to your group of athletes.”  Further, in Eric Cressey’s Interview of Kevein Needle it was said that “good training is good training.”  I couldn’t agree more.

In a world where distance runners feel like they should be lifting differently than any other ahtlete, this is a guiding principle.  Sure, runners may not need to be complexing 42″ depth jumps and 1RM front squats, but they certainly will be doing some jumping and squatting.  Regardless of sport, you develop the necessary qualities with the same tools.  Emphasis changes, but the tools stay the same.

Don’t try to re-invent the wheel.
