Random Thoughts: August 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. Want to be a good strength coach? Start with being a good person.
  2. When it comes to conditioning, hands on your knees (not your head) is an optimal position for recovery. Do you want to look tough or be tough? – Marco Sanchez
  3. A poor diet is clearly linked to negative health issues. And you have 100% control of what you put in your mouth. Fruits and vegetables. Lean sources of protein. And try to do it consistently.
  4. I don’t care what you bench press. At all. – Jason Rice
  5. There are a lot of things we argue over as strength coaches. One thing I know for sure, you’ll never be wrong by getting people to move well.
  6. You only control the effort, not the results. – Ryan Holiday
  7. Most success in life comes from doing boring things over and over again. Success in the weight room is no different.
  8. Physiology and biomechanics can not be separate from psychology. It’s hard to be a great strength coach without acknowledging the art of coaching.
  9. When you’re good at something, you’ll tell everyone. When you’re great at something, they will tell you. – Walter Payton
  10. When done correctly, there is no better corrective exercise than strength training.
