In the end coaching is of only so much significance, maybe even what I would call little significance. The greatest factor is the size of the athlete's heart. No coach, no matter how good or bad, could have kept me down. Some coaches could make a little more of me than others, with my permission.
Well said Chris --that's what keeps lifters in the sport and reaching their best,especially helped by a good coach, but even w/o.Take personal ownership, not hard to do in this sport where team membership is not required.Cherine, I read in your longer post a lot of what I have heard for decades from many in the BB world --you may be very conditioned by that environment to be very likely to give great precedence to what may be rather subjective, a natural thing in BB. Your picture looks fine to me,but then, approval of your visual image should not be higher than what your body can DO.As you well know, there are plenty of ideal physiques among 105s and 75s, lifting nearly as much as supers.Too much cardio/dieting IS a problem, but in the end, be confident in building what you want to be --you just need to really decide what that is...
My team mate tell me I mess myself up by over analyzing. I think about the lift far more when I should actually just DO IT. I am sorry, but I am not like everyone else. They have all been lifting for fifteen years. I have to REALLY think about my lift regardless of whether I have 35kg or 135kg on the bar (which is about as much as I can front squat for a single). It just does not come naturally to me the way it does for them :(
