Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- Traditionally our work in the weight room is vertical – we clean, we snatch and we squat. Traditionally our work in the weight room is moving weights slow. Yet sport/sprinting/skating is very horizontal. Sport is played fast. Explore the horizontal plane more. Sprint more.
- Hard work, humility and honesty are what all the successful teams and organizations have in common
- Can we ever be completely confident that we will prevent all knee/ACL injuries? Nope. But learning to land properly is a great place to start.
- Contrary to popular belief, you can develop max strength doing sub-max work. We live in the 75-85% range with most our strength work and continue to get stronger.
