Jay DeMayo Posted May 28, 2016 Share Posted May 28, 2016 Hello to all involved. First, let me thank whomever has put together all of this for their efforts in helping coaches communicate and evolve. I’m sure it’s a never ending task. I was listening to Coach Sommer’s interview on The Tim Ferris Show and many of the things discussed would fit very well, especially in the initial phases, of a college strength and conditioning program. With the student athlete’s I work with we already have a different approach where we do take our time, we don’t load them too fast (or at least I don’t think we do), but I think that many of the things he brought up in this discussion (building mobility, and connective tissue strength) are things that if we focused even more on earlier in the student athlete's development they would lessen issues later in their career. So, I’m very curious as to a few things: 1) Where would you (and I am including anyone sense I am very ignorant to all of these practices) suggest I start to learn for myself? I feel a coach must have at the very least a general physical understanding of what their asking their athlete’s to accomplish, so I need to learn this stuff first. 2) Where and how could I begin to expand upon that in coaching, be it on courses, manuals, video’s whatever? 3) would there be a specific person (assuming Coach Sommer would be unavailable) to discuss the physical preparation process, what our programing is now, how these methods could be implemented (both how he/she see’s and where I would see it applicable), and begin to work together to develop this aspect of our curriculum? Again, thank you for your work in putting this all together. I look forward to moving forward in the near future. J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
