I have been reading a good deal of these types of authors such as Gladwell, Colvin, Coyle, Ericcsson and I have a few still more to read. I am also part of linkedin and as part of my network a forum I am part of was suggesting that what I am reading is popsci and most of the statements are grossly simplified or taken out of context in order for the stories to flow.
OK, I can take that, and in my defence I have read around this subject in detail, including handbooks, journal articles, conference proceedings but I still come back to the fact that these authors have made this topic far more accessible to me. I do not take what is said as gospel but use it for my inner monologue to torment myself and strive to be better. Guys cheers for that, and I hope by writing rambling blogs like this you too can start to think outside the physiology, biochemistry, biomechanics of Strength and Conditioning and start to consider the athlete, their individual development and how we can best enable them to become expert performers.
