The specificity principle of sports conditioning comes into play when an athlete wishes to excel in a specific sport or activity.
Your training must go from highly general—such as lifting weights and cardio— to very specific so it includes performing that exercise or skill.
To be a good cyclist, you must cycle.
A runner should train by running.
A swimmer should train by swimming.
If you have plans to participate in an athletic event this season, be sure to discuss this with your trainer. The trainers can adjust your workouts accordingly and even help you create a plan for success.
