Strength Coach- Video- Wisdom Wednesday [or Friday, Saturday. wisdom works all week!]- Should Bodyweight Always Come Before External Resistance?


Mike Boyle



"StrengthCoach.com has helped me tremendously since its inception.  The articles and videos continue to be really helpful in learning what's currently going on in the Strength and Conditioning profession.  
However, what I find most valuable is the ongoing forum discussions which feature dialogue between some of the best people in the business.  You get an insight to what people are doing with their clients/athletes."


Sean Skahan, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Minnesota Wild



You want to learn, network and grow as a professional.
Is it even possible in such an intimidating environment filled with so much conflicting information?
YES!


It's Overwhelming Out There...
Anthony Renna, host of The Strength Coach Podcast
I can remember when I first started out as a trainer, I couldn't believe how much conflicting information there was about Strength & Conditioning and Personal Training! 
I was trying to absorb as much information as I could but it was pretty confusing, I wasn't sure who to believe or who I could trust.  The internet was (and still is) filled with snake oil salesmen padding their resumes (amazing how many people claim to have worked with pro athletes and Olympic champions) trying to make a buck selling “magic” training formulas.
The peers I had been working with in my big box gym seemed to be mostly concerned with their own bodies, and trainers who had been there the longest were not interested in teaching anyone that might be their competition. 
They certainly weren't interested in learning anything new.  I wasn't sure where to turn. 
A lot of trainers face the same problems:
  • Overwhelmed by all of the information on the internet
  • Waste too much valuable time searching for answers to questions
  • Take a chance and overpay for DVD's that end up over-promising and under-delivering
  • Get books that are outdated with authors that you can't get in touch with for questions
  • Have no one to connect with to talk about industry topics
  • Can't find good mentors to help with advancing in their career
It's frustrating!
According to many sources, the career "life" expectancy for trainers is anywhere from 1-3 years.
They end up leaving the business for good.
I know, I was at that point. 


I really felt all alone in my pursuit to become a better trainer......Keep reading....
