    To delve more into this thread, I couldn’t agree more with Coach House on his 2nd and 3rd points. Especially the younger athletes being afraid of failure, specifically in front of their peers. The building of confidence at these ages are critical for the progress that they are hoping to see and what we as coaches are wanting to accomplish.  And…[Read more]

           I agree with you jlinden66, as a current high school strength coach, I prefer not to put an 1RM load on any of my athletes. There are exceptions, but those tend to be a select few of my seniors that are going into their freshman year of college.
