Gymnastics for Sports
If there was any one sport that displays the best combination of strength, flexibility, balance, and power, it would be gymnastics. Gymnastics is not a very well known sport, most people will occasionally see it while watching the Olympics every four years, but aside from that have almost no knowledge on the subject. I'd like to remedy that problem and inform people on why gymnastics is beneficial to almost anything.

Basic Explosive Weight Training for Judo:
Korean Olympic Team Strength & Fitness Training

If you have ever competed or trained with a Korean National team member they are extremely fit and strong. The link below follows the 2012 Korean Olympic team in the weight room, on the track and outdoor training. They are training at a very high intensity and the coaches are pushing them beyond the athletes stopping points to ensure that they are one of the fittest athletes on the judo mats.  The athletes are gaining an incredible amount of strength & fitness and at the same time becoming mentally strong through their effort.

Year Planning:
This is an excellent article from Sport Ireland about yearly planning. It is a easy to read 14 page article about how to make a year plan. It introduces new ideas on old concepts like ‘’SMARTER’’ goal setting.  It also has a very good section on performance profiling (needs assessment).
