Interview with Israel Halperin
Israel Halperin tends to stay quiet and not self-promote, but he's worked with some prominent fighters in the past. More importantly though, he cares a lot about what research does and doesn't say. I'd highly recommend giving this interview a read, but I'll list off a few points that I thought were worth restating.
- If you want to get good at a sport, you need to practice the sport. Prioritizing S&C over practice will only make you better at exercise.
- Everything works, but not everything works for everyone. Just doing some form of S&C seems to help, but you'll never stick with it if you hate doing it.
- S&C programs should be a partnership between coach and athlete. The athlete should listen to the coach, but the coach should also listen to what the athlete has to say and modify accordingly.
