Random Thoughts

Be careful when the bottom line becomes the bottom line

An exercise should never be an end unto itself. Dead lift, squat, power clean, picking your nose, it does not matter they are all part of a bigger picture and a means to an end.

The injury prevention component of a training program is essential, but it should be a transparent component of every training session

Work and training are not the same

Vern, please elaborate what you mean by work and training are not the same.

I am not Vern by any stretch o fthe imagination but I think I understand. Vern correct me if I'm wrong.

Work - It's like a boat with sails but without a rudder. It's always moving in the water but without a purpose or destination. The rudder is the focus that we should have when we train someone, having a clear concise path planned and a knowledge/experience how to get to that destination the most effective way for that person in their sport. Am I even close?

Thanks,
