A person like myself, or the ‘coach’ above, who works with team sport athletes can easily sound like an expert and get away with subjective claims because team sports provide a protective barrier of so many variables to hide behind.
I normally look for a photo to spice up the blog or post a chart, but here is some very good discussion about the the profession of strength or performance coaches that demands a reading. I am not going to get into details as Aaron’s comments are right on here, but I do think we need to start making change. If we focus on the health and athlete goals, perhaps we will not get into claims that olympic lifting is creating weaklings like kryptonite to Superman. I don’t have to worry about team sports much, but ignoring the problems addressed in Aaron’s blog must be talked about. For more information please click HERE.
