Monday Musings

Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy! hello monday

  1. This is a Tweet from Head Strength Coach at Elon University, Nick DiMarco and something that I agree with 100%;
    • “Most of the time we’d rather be wrong with the crowd, than be right with ourselves.” – James Clear, Atomic Habits. A leading reason why bilateral back squats are still performed in 99% of programs. Along with the ‘that’s what we’ve always done’ mentality.
  2. Stop thinking exercise and start thinking movement/adaptation. Chase the adaptation, not an exercise or amount of weight on the bar.
  3. Nothing comes close to sprinting for load on the hamstrings. Sprinting is obviously great for speed development, but they are also great from a hamstring injury prevention standpoint…and the research is starting to show just that.
  4. Transfer is the name of the game for strength coaches.
