|Three principles of training:|
|(i) Principle of overload: The overload principle is a basic sports fitness training concept. It means that in order to improve, athletes must continually work harder as they their bodies adjust to existing workouts. Overloading also plays a role in skill learning.|
|(ii) Principle of Specificity: The principle of specificity states that the more specific a training activity is to a given sport - muscle group, work load, velocity and pattern of movement, body posture, and range of motion - the more it will contribute to increasing performance in that sport.|
|(iii) Principle of Individualization: This could also be called the snowflake principle, since it highlights that no two climbers-or their optimal conditioning program - are the same. The best training program for a person will target his/her specific weaknesses, address past or present injuries, provide sufficient time for recovery, and be structured to provide the greatest output for the available training input.|
