Harsh Comments From Weightlifting Coaches….

“Do you have thick skin, or do you get your feelings hurt easily? Think about that for a second. How sensitive are you?

I have pretty thick skin, for the most part. I grew up playing football, and I also coached it for ten years. Football is a great way to develop some hard bark on you. When you play, your coaches will verbally rip you in half. And when you coach, you get to wake up in the morning after a Friday night loss and read about the lousy job you’re doing in the newspaper. Trust me, you’ll have a bulletproof ego after a few seasons of this.

Some of you are coaches, and many of you are athletes who train under coaches. I don’t know what your relationships are like in this department. Hopefully they’re fun and productive.”
