The FOMO effect (Fear of Missing Out) plays a greater influence on exercise programming these days than athlete need or purpose and, as such, time is often wasted on inconsequential exercises, with basic training requirements getting squeezed out or minimized in the rush to look relevant.
In terms of athletes’ speed training, it is a closer examination of how we may make the most of the time we have with them. Since it permeates everything we do, technology is frequently linked to increased scientific input and more precise interactions between coaches and athletes. We must keep in mind, though, that “the application of scientific knowledge for practical ends, especially in industry,” is one of the fundamental definitions of technology. As a result, in order to really meet the criteria for this definition of technology, we must analyze the scientifically based information and relevant practical concerns around the implementation of an efficient and effective sprint training session, particularly when time is of the essence.
