Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- Current thoughts on the ratio of pulling to pressing – 3:1 Pull to Push, 2:1 Horizontal to Vertical. Might be overkill, but way too many shoulder injuries in sports these days.
- If you want to be successful in this field you need to be willing to learn from anyone and everyone. Whether it is good or bad, we can learn from every other coach that we are exposed to – stay open minded.
- If your core training consists of crunches, sit ups, Russian twists or anything else along those lines, your doing it wrong. Resist motion, don’t create it.
- “I love trap bar jumps. They have become an intricate part of our programming. Very low barrier, super easy to teach. We use weight ranging from 55-95lbs.” – Daniel Flahie on Twitter the other day – and I 100% agree with this.
