It takes time to learn to work with your coach. Don’t get upset after just a few months, or even a year, when things maybe aren’t moving along the way you think they should. Much of the responsibility falls on you as the lifter. Not only is it your job to execute the program, but you must take responsibility for communicating with your coach as well. They more information you can give, about your sessions, your health and recovery and other activities, the better they can program for you.
Recently my coach has made some adjustments to my programming that have been highly beneficial for me. We adjusted my days so that I have 3 heavy and 2 pretty light days. But this would have not happened had I not been open and honest with her about how I was responding to my sessions. Another big part of this is due to good journaling on my part so that I can look back and know what I have responded well to in the past and relay that back to her. It’s a process. At the end of the day, the process is the true goal.
