I see too much emphasis on limitations and dysfunctions either imposed from the outside because of results on an artificial movement screen or self-imposed by the athlete. As a coach I am much more interested in what you can do rather what you can’t do. Certainly any real or received limitations should and will be taken into consideration but we can figure it out and dial up or dial down the training so that it is appropriate for what the athlete can do. We have to understand how to individualize and apply the principle of progression so that we can make the training program fit the athlete’s needs. If we don’t do this we are selling the athlete short and not fully preparing them to thrive in competition. In fact we put them at a severe disadvantage. Let get going and do it to the best of their ability. You can do it and you can keep doing it better.
