In this episode we discuss everything from…
- What a movement first approach means
- How coaches can tweak agility training for better outcomes
- What reactive agility really is
- How warm-ups could be better structured for the subsequent tasks of sport
- Mistakes coaches make during practices in terms of removing messiness, mistakes, and creativity
- Where he found his roots in dynamic systems theory, a constraints led approach, and ecological psychology
- We talk about the greatest mover of all-time - Barry Sanders
- Much More
- "My only goal with athletes is getting them better when and where it counts, which is in the arena of sport"
- "Sport is a problem solving activity"
- "If the perception is inaccurate or wrong - the action won't be appropriate"
- "I don't refer to it as a warm-up, but a movement preparation scheme. Warming-up is general; I'm trying to prepare behaviors"
- "A major mistake I see is the training environment is not truly representative that of which happens in the sporting environment"
- "An offensive player and a defensive player have much different requirements in sport - so should their warm-up, training, and patterns"
- "I try and learn from different fields - I've gone to watch dance instructors, martial arts instructors, teachers - it should come as no surpass that we can learn from various disciplines"
- "Often we gets athletes so restricted on reproducing what we deem an ideal movement pattern, that we don't even know if it's ideal or optimal for that respective athlete. Instead we should help guide and be a facilitator rather than an instructor"
