Since we didn't have an off-season in China, we had to apply a new paradigm - there is no correction, only different entry points for effective programming. In automobile Grand Prix’s, during the season, support staff scramble to fix and get vehicles back into competitive mode like mad men and women. When they aren't racing, ie in between races or in an off-season, they spend timing working on weak links before developing performance.
In China, the off-season is a western world concept. Most athletes and teams are in-season all the time, and that means we’re virtually working only to protect them from their own high volume power outputs, shear forces and greater than bodyweight forces.
Usually, in the west, when in-season, protect. When out-of-season, correct. So, how do we correct if there's no off-season? Since we didn't have an off-season, we had to apply a new paradigm - there can be much less correction, or only different entry points for an attempt at effective programming.
Yet, despite this unusual concept of no off-season, we were being scrutinized for the advances we could make to mature, seasoned athletes who went into world-class competitive seasons with pain, movement limitations and asymmetries.
