I have been involved with training elite athletes / dancers etc for over 2 decades and have picked up a few tips for achieving optimal gains and function. Like any structure, an athletic body requires great foundations. all too often, these foundations are overlooked in sports training environments or by individuals lacking appropriate input and guidance.
