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!
