The model works backwards from the ultimate goal of improving performance. Performance training variables can be broken down into variation and specificity.
1. Variation includes activities that address barriers to performance and regaining control (regain movement options and reduce the secondary consequences of training).
2. Specificity includes the primary benefits of training such as targeting a specific adaptation or skill acquisition.
Both include Training Principles which are use to establish intent with exercise selection (strategy), create exercises (methods), and execute exercises (coach). Finally, review the effectiveness of the decisions: modify and adapt accordingly.
