Progressions and regressions!
Knowing your progressions is one of the things I see that’s really poorly done in trainers and coaches.
What I mean by this is that we need an athletic development pathway to take somebody to the endpoint in your program.
Whatever it maybe, have a pathway to get there. I.e When do they get to eccentric back squats? When do they get to power endurance Olympic weightlifting?
There’s three things a program must have; 1.Quality 2.Purpose and 3. Intent.
You might get the purpose and the intent but you’re not going to get the quality if you jump to the end on day one.
So, how do you take someone down to that endpoint?
That is your progressions journey. Your athletic development journey,
The only way to do that is to know what progressions to use for somebody who’s had a hip replacement and they can’t even get up off the floor to somebody who’s squatting eccentrically or doing Olympic weightlifting with great form.
What is that Journey? How do you connect those dots how do they earn the right to go through each stage?
It’s such an important piece of work and it’s central to my course the elite coaching blueprint.
We get coaches to come up with their movement journey and you need to do yours and then you can drop into this progression.
That’s when you get long-term results.
That’s when you get really engaged athletes clients and people.
