10 Rules for Strength Coaches

Front Squat

  1. Your athlete’s training is always more important than our own. Your athlete’s need a coach, not a training partner, they need someone who is solely focused on improving their performance, not yours.  They count on you to program, evaluate, push, pull back, and put your energy into making them better. Being a strength coach takes a 100 percent commitment of your time and energy. Their training, their goals, and their improvement are more important than yours. Strength coaches compete every time one of their athletes competes (if you don’t feel this way, DO SOMETHING ELSE!), make sure you…

No matter what you are trying to do or accomplish, remember that doing something with passion (no matter the results) is always worth doing. The goal that you have every single day should not to find success, but to be significant. Be significant to your spouse, your child, your athlete’s, your teammates, your coworkers, or whoever is important to you in your life. Remember the court of public opinion will find reasons to dislike you (no matter what you…

Everyone is slow and weak when they are tired. That is why conditioning is a key component to all training plans. There are two major goals of any conditioning plan. 1.       Improve heart and lung health as well as maximize the efficiency of a person’s energy systems. 2.       Teach the skill of pushing to your limit, and then increasing that limit.  Yes, mental toughness is a trainable skill! It is a skill that needs to be trained just like every other aspect of competition. Athletes need to learn how to compete at a high level when they are uncomfortable in…
