GPP and SSP

  • GPP  – General Physical Preparedness.
  • SSP – Sport Specific Preparedness.

Think of GPP as the base on which SSP sits. Whether you’re a competitive athlete or weekend warrior, having a better developed GPP base — strength, power, endurance, coordination, agility, flexibility, etc. — allows for better and safer performance regardless of sporting endeavor.

For example, increased strength and stronger bones and joints are assets for both tennis players and triathletes although the SSP requirements — technique/skill, strategy, energy system development — for each sport are different.
