COMMENT BELOW the lift you struggle with the most!
Check List For Cueing An Athlete!
🔹So, you’re watching someone lift and you see something looks a little off and you are trying to figure out what to do! 🔹The first thing to figure out is “can you fix the problem with a two to three word cue?” Or something that’s super quick!
🔹If you can, do it! Cue the athlete in the moment! That’s what a coach is for! One of the most valuable traits a coach can have is the ability to cue and fix an problem in the moment!
🔹So, lets say you can’t find a way to fix the issue in a couple words and it’s going to need a longer discussion. This is where the next question comes into play!
🔹What is the magnitude of the problem you see? If it’s a slight issue, let them finish their set and talk it out with them afterwards!
🔹If the problem is something that you think is putting your athlete at a higher risk of injury and you can’t find a way to cue them quickly, that might be the time to have them rack the bar and talk to them about what you saw!
🔹It’s not the end of the world, figure out what the problem was and have them get right back to their set or if they were a rep or so shy, count it and move on! 🔹Coaching an athlete in person can be a difficult task, you need to be quick on your feet and make decisions fast! The more straight to the point you are, the better!
We are very particular on ensuring the coaches are consistently driving technique before loading. This is imperative for achieving results and keeping the athlete injury free. It is but natural for athletes to want to lift heavy. But it’s the job of the coaches to pull them back and be relentless till right technique is practiced. Listen to your coaches and work up the weight and spend time in understanding and practicing right mechanics.

Let’s address one of the most common myths in weight training…is it safe for a child to lift?🤔 .
One of the strongest held beliefs is that lifting weights will lead to a growth plate injury. This is a vulnerable area of bone that can be 2-5 times weaker than surrounding tissues. A fracture in this area is a serious injury…however barbell training has NOT been shown to increase risk of growth plate injuries when proper supervision and technique instruction are provided.✅
This means children as young as 6 and 7 can start lifting without fear of sustaining a growth plate fracture and stunting their growth as long as technique is stressed, and proper weights are prescribed and good coaching is used.✅ .
It is even safe for young athletes to find their 1 repetition maximum (1RM) without fear of injury (again provided proper technique and supervision). The force an athlete sustains when performing a maximal strength test (such as a 1 RM squat) is actually less than what they would be exposed to on a daily basis in most other sports.⛹🏼♀️🤾🏼♂️⛷ .
So, just as with any age…lifting weights isn’t bad for you unless you’re doing it with bad technique and with improper weights.🏋🏼♀️❌
