Well it's been awhile since one of these surfaced so why not get a fresh one posted, right? Hope everyone is having a good Friday as they read this. I know the world has been split once again by recent events and I've given my opinion on the subject to those that asked and care to listen. This is not the place I'm going to express them, instead hopefully I can provide a little relief from all the stress and chaos the world has to off lately. Alright, with that let's have a look at today's Insta post.
It's a few weeks old, but still probably worth bringing up again:
After 10 Years of Coaching Here's What I Think I Know- This piece is a bit old and doesn't have a ton to do with the Strength and Conditioning field directly. I still believe what's being said here can be applied to ANY coach. Of course, I'm biased because this guy is a rugby coach, doesn't mean it's not worth a glance.
The Components of a Great New Clients Assessment: Helping Clients Set Goals- Todd Bumgardner and the team over at Strength Faction do some fantastic work, pretty sure I've said that before. Those that haven't heard it, engrain it into your cranium. Client goals are a huge part of making sure they see success, it can be tricky to balance what you think is best and what they want. This piece here is worth the read, I mean if Todd wrote it, it's likely worth the read, no matter the subject.
Trainer Consistently Punts to "Ankle Mobility" as Reason for Poor Squat- Be informed, be informed, be informed. That's all I can say with this short and sweet post. You can not simply fall back on one solution or another when it comes to solving technique and form issues for exercise. People are all going to be different, even if it's only a slight difference, they still need to be treated as such. Please, everyone, use your brain, don't be a robot.
