My first full year as a college strength and conditioning coach was the 2017 college baseball season. I had worked in the private sector as a strength coach/personal trainer but had never been tasked with the responsibility of handling a full team. I quickly learned that it was a completely different animal than one-on-one or small group training. Designing a program for one athlete is hard enough but managing 30-40 different body types, goals, abilities, and personalities was a daunting task.
Now, halfway into my second season, everyday is still a learning experience but I have learned a few things that could've helped a younger me.
