This is part two of our three-part series on our athletic testing combine. You should check out part 1 to learn more about what each test means before reading on.
Testing can quickly become a waste of time if you don’t do something with the data. Every testing combine, workshop, or team session we run ends with us explaining what the data and results mean for the team and each individual.
Each athlete receives a testing handout taking them test-by-test through their results, what they mean, where they stand compared to their peers and what they need to do to improve athletically.
This is the most crucial and important part of the entire testing process.
To help our athletes get the most they possibly can out of their training, regular performance testing is key to help us calibrate and customise every individual's training.
Testing alone, however, is not enough, it's what you do after you collect the data that is vital; analysing, goal setting and intervention are the real heroes of an athletic combine because it's these crucial stages where athletes get better.
