If there are any level 1-3 coaches here I am curious as to your opinion of the certification process, and how skewed or not the curriculum presents itself.
Being NSCA CSCS and USAW Club Coach certified, I ask this question of you USATF coaches, because much of what was covered in the NSCA and USAW curriculums was only retained long enough to pass the exams, as I am not in agreement with many of their teachings. So if you get where I am coming from you will understand the context with which I ask your opinion of the USATF process.
I am Level II in sprints. In my opinion the certification process is ok but that is probably just because on this forum for over 2 years we have been talking about everything in greater depth than at level 2 school and I have learned so much that i really didint pick up thatttttt much there. Basically it reinforces alot of what you know which makes you feel good and the best thing about the certification process is networking. You meet alot of great people.
How old to you have to be to take the Level 1 test for USATF? Is there any things you have to do in order to go and try to get level 1 certified? I plan on going to a level 1 sprints for USATF after I graduate from high school
So is this puruance of the highest level of accreditation an illustration of your interest in the curriculum/furthering your skill set, or do you take pleasure in adding to your certification collection?LOL
In all seriousness, I am interested in your answer.
Clemson just took some photo shoots a few days ago and has dropped a lot of clients to work with a Triple Jumper. Her squat has gone from 145 to 225 in a month and she has gotten leaner. She is fun to watch because she does all of the cool plyometric combos. We liked having you over at the dangeroom.Pool Shark is ripped as hell!!!
PS - Clemson has a cute lady friend that he trains for FREE. Dirty Dirty Dirty.
