Coaching Challenge: Faster or Slower?

Pat Barber Coaching Challenge, Coaching Development

Today, in every workout you coach, we want you to ask yourself: Should this person go faster or slower?⠀

That’s it.⠀

That’s your coaching drill.⠀

Ask yourself that question with every person.⠀

Do they need more intensity? Are they missing the stimulus of the workout? Are they resting during their weakness/deficiency so much that they’re missing the point of the workout? Speed ’em up.⠀

Do they need to work on mechanics? Slow ’em down and cue ’em into better positions.⠀

(Are they complaining that the workout wasn’t hard enough? Here’s an intensity test to try.)
