Fear Of Failure
Athletes fear failure. I find it hard to believe someone who says they don’t. This fear will do two things; motivate you to never fail again or it will break you down and create a fear that holds you back and limits your potential. I REFUSE to let fear of failure break ANY of my athletes. This is not going to be a normal blog post here at 1RM Performance. I want to address the elephant in the room that so many athletes and parents have lost the ability to deal with and forget exists.
Goals and Motivation
At 27 years old, I am currently training to bench 450, have a 10 foot standing broad jump, have a 62 inch box jump, squat 500 lbs, and dead lift 600. Melissa is training to make the pro beach volleyball tour, touch 9’8”, and bench 135 lbs. Chris Gibson wants to bench 350 and lose 20 lbs, Brett Vulgar wants to have a 60 inch box jump, Krista Morrison wants to squat 170 lbs 10x, and Justin Page wants to throw 90 mph. Why am I telling you this? It holds these people accountable for their goals. Why do I care about goals? They keep me motivated as a strength coach and a person.
