WHAT THE PROCESS LOOKS LIKE

PROGRAM & FEEDBACK

We are responsible for providing the prescribed work to the athlete at the start of every week. If athletes prefer they can receive up to four weeks at a time. We use a combination of RPE, percentages, and specific weights to communicate the program. This is customized to the athlete. Every week we provide feedback to the athlete as well as discuss future programming plans. We also address any questions or feedback the athlete has communicated in their weekly check-in.

ATHLETE TRACKING

The athlete is responsible for tracking all of their work and RPEs in the provided tracking sheet. We use a google sheet for this. The tracking sheet keeps track of various metrics like volume, tonnage, and an estimated 1RM. These data points serve as key information in evaluating the athlete’s response to training and future programming considerations.

ATHLETE FEEDBACK

The athlete is responsible for completing the Weekly Check-in form. We use a google form for this. This tool provides the athlete an opportunity to reflect on their training and communicate their assessments. The athlete also provides feedback on the programming and how they are responding. This information is used for future programming decisions.

RESULTS ANALYSIS

We are responsible for tracking the results of the programming. The athlete tracking sheet provides data to analyze and evaluate the results. Metrics like volume, tonnage, average intensity, and estimated 1RM are reviewed. We generally avoid focusing on a single day’s data, instead we look at trends over several weeks. This quantitative data, along with the qualitative commentary from the athlete, informs future programming decisions. The objective is to continually progress towards the athlete’s goals.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Here is the deal. We can't promise you 50kg on your total or any other specific number. The truth is we do not know how you will respond to training. We can get an idea based on your training history and background and can get an even better sense as we work together. Sometimes things click right away and strength improves quickly and sometimes things take more time. So while we cannot promise you a crazy jump in strength, we can promise you the following:

  • We will keep your goals as our top priority and do our best to help you achieve them.

  • We will be respectful, professional, and responsive.

  • We will communicate consistently and with honesty.

  • We will continue to evolve and grow as a coaches.

 

THE NEXT STEPS

If you haven't already, we recommend you read through the About Pro Strength section. There is some information in there that can help you determine if we may be a good fit to work with you. If you have already read through that section and are interested, send us an email with any further questions.

We will respond to your questions and we can also send you a questionnaire at your request. The questionnaire collects information centered around your training history and training goals. From there we will schedule a call to review the questionnaire and figure out if we may be a good fit.
