Misconceptions in s&c
Hi, i'm currently looking to do more work as a s&c coach with fighters & i as wondering what youn thought the biggest miconceptions when training fighters were?
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.
