'Rocky IV' Highlights The Advantages Of Contrasting Training Methods

Last night I saw “Rocky IV” again, which is an inspiring sports movie, molded on the career of undefeated boxer Rocky Marciano, who died in 1969 in a plane crash. “Rocky IV” showed a contrast between natural and technology based training methods, but which is better. 

Advances in science and technology have provided greater training capabilities to modern athletes in a variety of sports. Coaches are able to calculate their athletes progress in a more accurate and detailed manner. Injured athletes are also using technology for quicker recovery times. 

However, old fashion training methods are not to be discarded. It builds up a natural endurance, grit and roughness. The body benefits from challenging natural workout as well. A mix of natural and technology based training session for athletes can provide great results, taking advantage of the best of both worlds.
