Istvan “Steve” Javorek’s top 4 training tips
Here are 4 nuggets of training advice that I gleaned from a 2 day workshop with him 3 years ago:
- Continuous disciplined programme is better than a disorganised one.
- Hydration\ refuelling discipline is key, eating breakfast is essential.
- Before undertaking pliometric training, ensure that the back and abdominal muscles are strong. Depth jumps should occur LAST in any progressions.
- The S&C coach should set up the testing\ evaluation programmes, not the sports coach.
