When hitting your goal isn’t good enough

If you have coached long enough, you will be familiar with this.

A person hits a goal without really giving 100%, then leaves thinking they did good.

Well, they didn’t, here’s why–

  • the goal was not big enough
  • they could have done much better with full effort

Never let a person get away with that !

You, as a coach, are not doing them any favors by letting them slide like that.

Even on sub-max days full effort is a must.

People have to be fully engaged in the effort to make progress, regardless of the number of plates on the bar.

I would rather see a person give a true 100% effort and miss their goal than to put forth a 60% effort and hit it.

Make sure a person has goals big enough to draw out their very best, every time!
