Happy Monday and Happy Christmas Eve! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- One thing that coaches continually do is confuse quantity with quality. Less is typically more. More is just more. Better is better. You’ll be hard pressed to find a time, in-season or off-season, where we perform more then 3 sets for an exercise – and we continue to get stronger and more powerful.
- Jorge Carvajal on Ron McKeefery’s Iron Game Chalk Talk Podcast was asked what his best coaching advice was. His answer was a quote by Boyd Epley during Jorge’s time at Nebraska…”The great one’s adapt.” Simple & brilliant.
- Another piece of advice that Jorge offered revolved around be happy as a strength/performance coach, which was to build your coaching practice around the life that you want to live, not the other way around. Great advice!
