It's the 10th week of training and how time has flown. This year in my training group I'm fortunate to coach Will Claye, Tyron Stewart, Bryce Lamb, Ronnie Taylor, Markeith Price, Jeff Skiba, Chris Benard, Troy Doris, Arnaud Assoumani, Amanda Smock, Brittney Reese, April Sinkler, Toni Smith, and work a little with Akheel Whitehead and Lex Gilette. It's a very talented group of athletes all with different personalities but all with a passion to achieve success and driven to a common goal. That is to better oneself from practice to practice and repetition to repetition.
In these weeks I've discovered and employed many techniques to keep them progressing and getting stronger and faster. But at all times we remain grounded to the principle of progression and building both a physical and technical foundation. I'm truly excited to see the fruits of our labor but also know that my athletes need a break from me. We start after the first of the year competing and building to indoor nationals and indoor worlds. Exciting is an understatement! Please follow each and every athlete because their stories are amazing, cheers and have a happy and safe holidays.
