What your coach is thinking when she benches you

“Is she going to be pissed at me? Is she going to fight me on it? Is she going to be ashamed of herself and curl up into a ball? Is she going to be better for the experience, or worse?”

Your coach is not thrilled to be benching you. In fact, to some extent, she’s probably afraid to do it.

But mostly, she’s waiting to see how you’ll react.
