Welcome to my strength and conditioning blog. As the name suggest, I plan on talking about everything related to strength and conditioning. I’ve done a lot of writing and speaking about speed training, so there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be sharing a lot of that on here. A very good chance.
Something I’ve noticed, after nearly 20 years in this game, is that the more you learn about strength and conditioning, the more you see things in shades of gray instead of black and white. When I was just getting into the profession, I really thought there was a right way and a wrong way to do just about everything. I would pour over research for hours and hours to “prove” there was a right and wrong. It’s funny, but the more I learned, the more I realized that A LOT of stuff works….and it works well.
I used to get really bothered by seeing or reading about other coaches doing stuff I disagreed with. It used to grind the hell out of me. Well, now that I’ve accumulated more experience (that’s just a nice way of saying I’m getting old), I really don’t care about what other people are doing enough to get upset about it. Of course, I often spend WAY too much time reading ignorant posts on different boards, but I’m working really hard on letting go. Deep breath.
Don’t get me wrong, I still think a lot of coaches are missing the boat on different things – there will be posts all over this blog on them – but if what you’re doing is working for you, good for you.
I hope you enjoy this blog and get something out of it. I’ll try to keep it updated and provide entertaining information. Keep posting on here and let me know what you think.
