Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- 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.
- Stop thinking exercise and start thinking movement/adaptation. Chase the adaptation, not an exercise or amount of weight on the bar.
- 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.
- Transfer is the name of the game for strength coaches.
