Getting Good

Coach Burgener always says "everybody has a different body".  Meaning each athlete is going to have their own set of issues and limitation.  Coaching can be seen as a kind of triage done on an athlete's movement starting with gross mechanics and safety (back and knee position, on the heels) and moving to less important items.  It is important for coaches to cue and correct the gross mechanics first.  

In the photo above you can see Coach D performing her triage on Dawn's squat.  At this point in Dawn's training, Danielle is clearly not worried about any of the gross mechanics.  She is assessing the smaller details to work on for the next squat.
