Monday Musings

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.


  1. This seems like common sense and something that we shouldn’t have to continually go over, but our job as strength coaches/sport performance professionals is to keep athletes healthy and improve sport performance, not produce weight room numbers.
  2. To piggyback on that first thought…”On field performance > Weight room numbers.” – Jason Rice (@mov_ence on Twitter)
  3. Got a lot of people disagreeing with this on twitter, but no exercise is worth doing if it causes pain. Not sure why that’s so hard for people to understand.
  4. Never compromise movement quality for strength, it’s a recipe for not-so-great things down the road.
  5. The body does not recognize percentages when training intensity is prescribed. It recognizes effort and perceived exertion. These variables may change daily. Use the former only as a guide when programming. – Brett Bartholomew (@coach_BrettB on Twitter).
