Two identical athletes can do the exact same program with wildly different results.  While a coach needs to have a deep understanding of exercise science, programming strategies, and load management, a coach also needs to be able to communicate with their athletes.  This might seem simple, but it’s the most important part of a coach/client relationship.  Athletes: ask your coach questions. We love answering them. This is our full time job, hobby, and passion. We’re almost always available to talk shop.  Coaches: explain your programming and your decisions more. You don’t have to give a full lecture for everything you’re choosing, but talk to them about their programming.  This will not only improve your coach/athlete relationship, but it’ll also make you a better decision maker.

Connect with your body through movement cues…  Receiving cues in any type of movement training is one of the most helpful parts of movement practices that can support body connection.  Cues can be verbal, visual, proprioceptive, internal (interoceptive) or external ( exteroceptive), mirroring, hands on or tactile cueing, metaphors and such.  In combination, receiving the right cues can help build a language for the body to follow into movement. Some cues may induce fear in the body and some safety.  Receiving the right cues from the right person builds safety into that movement.  What works for one person in relation to cueing may not work for another . Different practitioners may have different cues for different movements and may work differently for some.  Experimenting with various cues can be helpful in becoming aware of what helps us get into the body quickly.  Have there been movement cues that helped you?  Have there been movement cues that deregulated you?  Leave a comment  about your experience 🌿  #movement #coachingcues #safetyinmovement #bodyconnection #mindbodyconnection #traumainformedpersonaltraining #fittherapypt

EP. 20: Greg Potter - Better sleep for better gains?  You know it, I know it, we all know it: #sleep is crucial. Sleeping less than 7 hours a night is associated with many health-related problems, such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. On top of that, consistent sleep loss can affect your physical capabilities as well, including cardiovascular fitness and #strength. Knowing this won't help you sleep better, though. Lifestyle factors such as working prolonged or irregular hours, social commitments, and family responsibilities can all contribute to inadequate sleep. In this episode, @gregpotterphd gives us plenty of practical tips for better sleep, and in turn, better #gains and better life.

Today’s Tuesday Tip relates to today’s WOD where we’ve been hammering you with putting on the hook grip! Just don’t forget when to take it off 😬
.
whiteboard_daily | COACHING CUE |  “Release the hook grip”  When?
Receiving the bar during the clean turnover  What does this mean?
A common error that I see with beginning Oly lifters is receiving the bar with “slow and low” elbows during the clean turnover.  Many times the cause of this is that they are keeping a firm hook grip on the bar after their elbows have passed in front of the bar.  Releasing the hook grip on the bar, but still keeping the bar within the fingers, during the clean turnover will place the lifter in a better position to get their elbows higher and do so quickly.  .

(Gutes) BRACING ist mehr als nur die Luft anzuhalten! ⁠
⁠
Man kann die Atmung nicht nur benutzen um den nötigen DRUCK aufzubauen...⁠
Man kann sie auch nutzen um eine optimale Position zu finden!⁠
