Great quote from Ben Peterson et al.
Efficient movement can maximize performance for a given athlete’s conditioning level. The opposite is also true. Inefficient movement can also impair an athlete’s ability to display their high level of conditioning.
Movement efficiency and conditioning go hand and hand. If a player is struggling late in shifts or game – try to decipher if it’s a conditioning issue, movement efficiency issue, or both.
