Abstract

PROPER INSTRUCTION INVOLVES THE TEACHING OF BOTH THE “HOW” AND “WHY” A SKILL SHOULD BE PERFORMED. WHEN PROPERLY IMPLEMENTED, EVIDENCE CLEARLY INDICATES THAT IT IMPROVES AN ATHLETE'S PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE. USING INSTRUCTIONAL MODELS, STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACHES CAN INCORPORATE PROPER INSTRUCTION INTO THEIR TRAINING PROGRAMS. THE 2-FOLD PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE IS TO PROVIDE THE READER: (A) A JUSTIFICATION OF HOW THE USE OF PEDAGOGICAL PRINCIPLES CAN LEAD TO IMPROVED PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE BY AN ATHLETE, AND (B) PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS FOR INCORPORATING PROPER INSTRUCTIONAL MODELS THROUGH A HOLISTIC STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM.
