Winning Culture

It is there and it is important. You can feel it! There is a sense of personal accountability from the superstars to the custodians, they are all in and believe each is equally important. Leadership is from within not from above. The focus is on the task at hand, building on and learning from the past successes and failures but always preparing for the future. Successful cultures are not characterized by slogans on the wall or catchy phrases on t-shirts, it is the actions of the whole…See More

Nothing is more frustrating for me as a coach than to see athletes just doing it, putting in the time just going the through the motions thinking that will make them better. If just putting in the time was the answer then everyone would be great, there is so much more requited. To borrow the concept from De La Sale High football start with “Perfect Effort” anyone can do that, it takes no talent or…See More

Thought for the Week – Progression

Know and understand progression. The key to a sound training program is progression. Proper progression prevents poor performance and goes a long a long way toward preventing injury. Don’t confuse protocols with progression; protocols imply a set time frame for completion of tasks, in essence ticking the boxes. Progression demands mastery of each step before moving to the next step. In no way is it linear and entirely predictable. There is huge individual variability in how athlete’s progress…See More

More is Better Blues

Volume is a seductive trap. At younger training ages virtually anything an athlete does will make them better. The more they do, the better they get – up to a point. That point is something we recognize as the point of diminishing returns. But despite the diminishing returns it is very tempting to continue on that path because that is what got them to that point.

Coach, would you mind refreshing my memory as to your reasoning behind why you don't like the manual glute-ham raise exercise? I wanted to quote you the other day but couldn't remember the specifics you discussed in a discussion a while back.

Coach Gambetta,

My name is Melissa Boldt and I am currently a Graduate Associate at Springfield College. I just wanted to share with you that I really enjoy reading your blogs on this network and have followed for quite some time now. I must say that you have by far the most intriguing and intellectual dialog and I see things through similar eyes.

 

Melissa
