Before Marginal Gains

Before you search deeply for marginal gains in performance it is important that you have taken care of what precedes marginal gains. Sometimes it is so obvious it is easy to overlook. It is really quite simple, it is a process that is necessary to achieve at the highest level:Know the BasicsMaster and Refine the BasicsDon’t Deviate From the BasicsOnce this process is clear then and only then will marginal gains be of significance in performance. It's all pretty basic!See More

Foundational Beliefs – Guiding Lights

The following are some of the basic tenants that I believe in as a coach. These are foundational beliefs that make up the pillars of my coaching philosophy. I was taught from day one as a coach that the philosophy is the guiding light, the beacon that guides you through the good times and the bad. They may be of assistance to you in defining how and what you do as a coach. In future blogs I will elaborate on each of them and share why they are important to me:Coach & Teach The Way You Would…See More

Characteristics of a Sound Training Program

I have been getting many requests to evaluate certain popular training programs. Rather than specifically evaluate any program I think it is better to describe the characteristics of a sound program and all of you can use this to evaluate and draw your own conclusions. Progression – You should be able to see clear definitive progression both inter and inter workout. In addition the progression should take into account training age and gender. Clearly Defined Goals – A sound program starts with…See More

Stuff

The last two posts I talked about old and new stuff today I am going to talk about plain old stuff. We all do stuff. The bottom line is do you know why you do the stuff you do? Are you just copying someone else’s stuff because it works for them? Take ownership of the stuff you do, know why you do it, and know why it works. Make the stuff you do meaningful for the athletes by coaching it. That is how you translate training into results, without coaching stuff is just that, stuff that makes you…See More

Be Humble

Foundational Beliefs #12 Be Humble

Last but not least be humble. Humility certainly is a virtue that has become scarce in sport today. Be thankful for what you have and learn to appreciate the athletes you coach no matter what level of ability. Coaching is so special, it is a real privilege to be able to help people grow and excel to reach their potential. Just the process is humbling in itself because there is so much that is out of our hands. That should serve as a reminder…

Hi Vern-  Yes sir I have worked with Zach Clayton.  He has  a very bright future here with us.  One of our weight room favorites.  I read your blog every day and have used your Gambetta Lunge Series for years with our players here.  When Zach first got here he said "this looks familiar...."

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
