Below I have linked to only a few of many articles I find valuable to athletes, parents, and coaches alike. They all in some way have either shaped, or are congruent with, my training philosophy for both athletes and the general public alike. I also realize that many out there are better writers than me, and simply say things more eloquently than I could ever hope to. Feel free to bookmark this page, as you probably won’t be able to finish all of them at once, and it will be updated on occasion.
