Do you resist change, are you stuck doing the same old thing over and over again? Has your training hit a wall? Are you to proud to ask for help from someone else. Do you need to step outside your comfort zone and challenge yourself. As a coach or athlete we need to continue to learn and evolve. One of the things I did this year for one of my athletes was to engage an Olympic weight lifting coach. This is an area of weakness for me even though I continue to learn more about the technical side of lifting I knew I didn’t have the skills or the knowledge needed to get him up to speed quickly. I contacted the NSW Olympic weight lifting association and it just so happened that the head coach is based not to far away from where he lives and trains. One week later we were in a olympic lifting gym doing one on one sessions surrounded by some of the best lifting athletes in the country. For me the sign of a good coach is knowing your weakness. Yes you should try to improve in areas that you are are nit so good in however for me this has always been to find people who are great and spend time with them. You can spend hours reading and studying or find someone who has been there and done that and reach out to them. You will be surprised at how much people enjoy helping people when the ask.
