I had this coaching client that I worked with in-person for a little over a year. For the sake of privacy let's call her Joy. Joy was a pretty bomb human being. She worked in IT at a local corporation in town, but about an hour a way. Because of her commute she only trained with me at lunch that way she didn't make any extra trips or have to get up any early or get home any later.
I think training on one leg is important. I also think training on two leg is important, but plenty of people include that in their training regularly. Everybody though avoids single leg work. Not that I blame them.
I fixed a running toilet! Not like right now. It was a week ago or so, but I'm still riding the high a bit. I've never been the handyman-type of guy. Not that I don't think I could be (#growthmindset). It's just fixing things wasn't something I grew up doing and it wasn't something that my dad went out of his way to teach me or involve me in. Thus I've always been a bit ill equipped when it came to problems of a mechanical, automotive, or home repair sort. That is I don't have any previous experience of success in these endeavors in which to draw confidence from and forecast my likelihood of success in similar endeavors now.
One of my favorite parts about coaching and training people is the investigative process that unfolds during the course of getting someone from where they are to where they want to be. It sounds strange to those who have never done it but that is largely what coaching boils down to in the end.
Earlier this week I told you about how to know exactly when NOT to stretch or mobilize yourself. You just look feel for a closing angle pinch. If you feel a pinch then you know shit isn't working nice and you probably need to seek some professional help.
