Random Thoughts: November 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!

  1. The goal of the weight room should be to enhance the sport, improve sport performance, not take away from it. If athletes are tired, sore or anything else from the weight room in-season, you need to re-evaluate the strength program.
  2. You should never reach an age in life where lifting weights isn’t a part of your weekly routine.
  3. Simple things done savagely well = success.
  4. I am a firm believer that athletes with a robust aerobic system are less likely to break down and more likely to recover between games, practices and during games and practices. Don’t overlook it in off-season conditioning.
  5. People don’t resist change, they resist being changed. – Peter Senge
  6. Keeping athletes healthy isn’t done by chance. Well designed and well thought out strength and conditioning programs that are built around what each individual athlete needs will go a long way in keeping them healthy.
  7. Person first. Athlete second.
  8. On the field, court or ice, no one cares what your numbers are in the gym. It is all about your ability to use those physical traits in your sport of choice.
  9. There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure. – Paulo Coelho
  10. If you master movement your allow athletes to have the potential to maximize performance.
