Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.
- You’re never too good to get better.
- It’s really stupid (and probably shows you have a huge ego) to not listen to the smart coaches around you in the industry. We can always learn something, from both younger and older coaches, coaches that have been in the game for a short period of time and a long period of time. None of us are as smart as all of us.
- It’s not qualifications/theoretical knowledge that makes the great strength and conditioning coaches so good at what they do…everyone has that stuff…it’s their ability to apply their knowledge in a practical setting and their exceptional communication skills that make them great. – Ben Griffin (@coachgriffin88 on Twitter)
- Effective coaches aren’t stuck to one system of training.
- It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the load you’re not prepared for. – Tim Gabbett
