When looking at an athletes competitive performance capacity The Compound Performance Effect is one of the most powerful or most debilitating factors for an athlete. Coaches that understand this effect and know how to coach the athletes through it have a distinct advantage over the competition.

Techniques, tactics, strategies, gear you name it – all of it pales in comparison to coaching your program to have a positive Compound Performance Effect.
