Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- One the last Strength Coach Podcast (#244), Fergus Connolly spoke about how continual learning is what separates the good coaches from the bad coaches. That the really great coaches aren’t afraid to change their minds because of the material they are consuming, because the only thing that matters is doing the best job possible for the people you work with. And I couldn’t agree more – spot on!
- The best form of athlete monitoring is having great relationships and talking to the athletes you work with on a daily basis. Chances are they’ll tell you everything you need to know and can work from there.
- Staying on the podcast theme, Kelly Starrett was recently on the Leave Your Mark Podcast. He mentioned that people are going to routinely live the 100 years of age going forward, and because of that we need to constantly be working on our movement hygiene if we want to enjoy those last 30-40 years. More mobility work on a daily basis!
