I've found that most people tend to learn physical & athletic things faster when they can see it performed correctly by someone else. One of the fun things about seeing each person in the gym get better is how it effects the learning curve of the newer athletes in the gym. The quality of movement by everyone in the past year has increased- A LOT.
Now, when new athletes come to the gym this simple quality has opened the door to faster improvement by folks who may be learning how to, say, snatch or hurdle bound for the first time. New people don't just have to hear the verbal cues, see the slow motion visual breakdowns, or feel the kinesthetic adjustments made by coaches, they can look right over and see it done by the person on the platform next to them. Whether it be learning to bound properly by dorsi flexing the toe and rolling through the foot, setting your back properly for a deadlift, or opening up the hands to whip your elbows around and receive a clean, there are many athletes in the gym doing it well, providing a good visual.
So basically what we are saying is, thanks for being better!
