    S & c coaches need to do strength work pre for fights rather then body building

    Think S & C are pretty clued up nowadays. Still alot of static stretching pre-session about in classes though

    Misconceptions are more common among the shitty weekend certificate PT's who happen to get a fighter to work with.

    In no particular order here's a few that do my head in...

    Size = strength.

    Strong = slow.

    Strong = poor mobility.

    RFD = Speed strength = acceleration etc etc. Basic lack of knowledge of how to develop different strengths.

    "Cardio" = 40 minutes jogging.

    You need to "recover fully" between training sessions.

    Olympic lifts are technically difficult.

    Olympic lifts are essential.

    ...and so on.

    The misconception amongst most is that a good workout is the one where you are sore and exhausted.
