Marc Lammers’ Coaching Lesson 3: “Continuously challenge your way of working”

Marc Lammers explained how important is for coaches to continuously challenge your way of working:

“Our training program included many 30 meter sprints. The team excessively had to train this, because for ages it is common practice to train 30 meter sprints. Then I had this idea to analyse the running pattern during a game.”

“In order to achieve that, we equipped each player with a GPS for some training sessions. Analysis of the data showed that, on average a player performs 15 meter sprints rather than 30 meter ones. Due to that we were able to make our training plan better match our real needs. Another small improvement was born.”
