I am turning 30 today, well if you are reading this I am already 30 years old, anyway that is beside the point. This is a pretty substantial birthday and in light of this I thought I might take a second to talk about the 30 things I have learned in training and from training in these first 30 years.
I started training seriously at age 15, for football, then for Olympic weightlifting, and finally for track and field. I competed at the national level for 11 years (weighlifting and track) and have coached for 10 years in some form (track, strength and conditioning). The following list is from my own training and my coaching.
