20170413_180348Every quarter we have our strength & work capacity tests Currently there are 5 barbell tests and 2 bodyweight tests.

As a coach, I analyze all the results for each person individually and for the entire group.

This gives me a clear picture of what problem areas we need to work on for the next three months and how to adjust our program design.

If there is the same  problem affecting all the people we test, then the coach (me) needs to do a better job overall and address that issue for the whole group.

If there is a problem with one person in a particular area, then I will tailor specific training for that person to bring up that weak spot.

This help me improve my coaching and it helps them make more progress. I hear Coach Rik Brown talk about that same thing almost every week during his online mace coaching program. He says we help him become a better coach.

I heed his advice!
