Most textbooks will not teach you to train athletes this way and many ‘experts’ will not touch the subject. Dr. Maxwell Maltz has words of wisdom on this topic: “Any new knowledge must usually come from the outside. Not from the ‘experts’ but from what has been defined as ‘inpert’.” An ‘inpert’, according to Maltz, is someone who develops knowledge outside the prescribed boundaries of a given science.
