Random Thoughts: March Edition

Another month, another post full of random thoughts that have been going through my head. Hope it sparks a little thought in people and you enjoy!

random thoughts

  1. The basics are tried, tested and true yet they don’t get the love and ‘likes’ because they don’t have the same sizzle as the new stuff. Any good coach will realize that their program should still be based off of the basics.
  2. A football player from Iowa Hang Cleaned 450×3 (maybe it was 4???) yet all anyone wanted to talk about was the fact he was using straps. One question…who cares?!?!
  3. Good movers in the weight room = good movers in sport.
  4. A lot of people have been doing more pulls with their Olympic work and not catching, which is fine. However, I feel there is a huge benefit to catching the weight, most notably the ability to absorb force and decelerate the weight.
  5. Read for different reasons. Read to learn. Read to lift your spirits. Read for fun. Read for entertainment. But most importantly, read.
  6. When you take care of yourself, physically and mentally, everything around you and in your life becomes better.
  7. Always have a beginners mindset, in every single area of your life.
  8. What are the best coaches in the world doing? You should probably do those same things.
  9. Don’t forget that people want to be coached by people they know, by people they like, and by people they trust. If you aren’t checking those boxes don’t be surprised if the people you coach aren’t completely bought in.
  10.  Pain never precedes function.
