Supplementary training is very important.  Including both aspects. 

The perspective of an everyday trainee and a competitive athlete. Supplementary training mainly refers to various preparatory and supplementary exercises, which are done in addition to the actual sport training or along with other specific training or along with the main sport genre. Supportive training helps to develop performance, improve the results and prevent injuries. 

Mainly from the trainee’s point of view, supplementary training is the key, especially when an athlete is trying to develop certain skills, abilities and certain qualities as an athlete. 

Exact training that takes place alongside the main sport actually helps to strengthen muscles, improve mobility and develop endurance. With the help of supplementary training, the trainee can achieve better results in his own physical activity and progress faster. It can also help the trainee to stay motivated and thus easily get versatility in the training program. 

Basically when an athlete is preparing for a competition, additional training can include tailored exercises to the demands of the sport, with the aim of improving competition performance. For example, an endurance athlete can focus on developing aerobic fitness and exercises that improve muscle condition. A powerlifter, on the other hand, can focus on strength training and technical exercises  to improve the power and strength productivity. Supportive training also helps competitive athletes with preventing injuries and reducing the risk of injury. 

Versatile training develops the body holistically and balances the long-term load of training. It also helps to avoid one-sided strain and overload, which can eventually lead to injuries. Therefore, supportive training plays a significant role from the point of view of both aspects, from the trainee and the competitive athlete. It helps develop the athlete’s versatile skills, improves performance and reduces the risk of injury.

Supportive training can also be considered important in terms of new learning. In connection with new learning, brain activity comes to alive in a different way and it also helps maintain memory, so it has many health benefits, compared to many studies. Learning something new can be fun, and the constant drilling doesn’t feel so boring when you add small extra movements. Of course, however, it is important to be aware of the amount of  the exercises. Quality replaces quantity, almost always, so it can be a really important thing to keep in mind at every stage, thought and inch with the athlete’s career.
