Monday Musings

Happy Monday!

Like every other 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. Building the engine is important and essential to sport performance, but don’t forget to develop a good set of brakes to match the engine.
  2. Especially in-season, a strength coach should think of themselves as stress managers, strategically knowing when to push and when to back off. In the playoffs when it ultimately matters, healthy teams win.
  3. If you train patterns you won’t miss muscles, if you train muscles you will miss patterns. – EXOS
  4. Closing in on 15 years of coaching and one thing I know is true; Great coaches aren’t the ones that know the most, they are the ones that care the most.
  5. Bilateral exercise may not carry over to real world performance as well as we think. – Eric Cressey
