Travis Futrell-Strength Coach-#275-Powerlifter and Strength Coach Travis Futrell joins host Eric Fiorillo on The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show. Eric and Travis talk about what it takes to be a good strength coach. We talk about what is needed when you start a new program. We make reference to bridging, posture and how many young men have such a poor grip. One common denominator he finds with some of his clients is there are no more dragons to slay. I use this metaphor to point to there was a time when men would go on some type of expedition or conquest to prove their worthiness to themselves or others of importance. We don’t do a lot of manual labor anymore or use our hands to move and pickup things. This creates not only hand weakness but it also effects the body whole. We talk about the importance of a strength coach to draw up the athletes program, to keep evaluating the athletes progress and to choose the movements that will enhance the athletes power, strength attitude and endurance. Travis and I believe some of the best strength coaches originate from the garages, basements or come from the outdoor environment. This strength coach is already battle tested and has been put in situations because of their environment and fought their way out and succeeded. This is why they can teach and succeed this way because of hands on experience. This always translates best to producing the most successful athlete in their chosen sport.
