I have recently corresponded with Ryan Williams, physical preparation coach from USA, after reading the American Football Physical Preparation book that he co-authored with the legend in the field Coach X Buddy Morris and my long time interned buddy James Smith. Ryan was kind enough to write an excellent guest article for my blog (even if I advised him against it because my internet traffic is not great at all :) ) regarding the theoretical frame the mentioned coaches utilize in their training systems.
The article will be posted in two parts. Enjoy!

Programming for Physical Preparation
Biological Theory, Principles, and Classification
1. Bioenergetics – “the flow of energy through the human body”
2. Bio-motor abilities – “independent abilities that enable an individual to perform a given task under specific conditions”
3. Biodynamics – “the complex of all interactions between internal and external forces, which is formed during the solving of motor tasks”
