Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- “80% of your job is knowing what not to do.” – Fergus Connolly. I couldn’t agree more. As a strength coach, a huge part of our job is knowing what not to do with certain athletes. What exercises are contraindicated for a certain athlete? What exercises are contraindicated for certain athletic populations due to their sporting demands? Common sense, but a huge part of keeping athletes healthy is by not doing things that may do just the opposite.
- In the world of strength and conditioning, sports performance or coaching, complacency kills more careers then anything else. Always be learning. Always be evolving. Always be trying to be a better version of yourself personally and professionally.
- Always remember; No one succeeds alone. No one. Ever.
