Question the Coach…every now and then

Musings of a Barbell Poet

As a coach, I have a tendency to over-share.  I like to break things down for my clients before and after the workout.  During the workout, I am there to motivate and help adjust movement patterns as I see areas where they can improve and increase safety.  Some people like that, other people tend to just want to go.  They see the workout on the wall and they are just wanting to attack it.

To them, I say…slow down (even if it is on a rare occasion).  Ask your coach “why?”  They need to be able to answer that.  They need to be able to offer you a better answer than “It will crush you, just do it”.  A quality coach will be able to tell you why and how you need to approach each workout.  Your trainer MUST be able to explain how you need to approach a workout…
