Coleman Ayers takes a deep dive under the microscope into the science and art of all things basketball and sports performance.
Ep. #8: Hoopers Should Be Sprinting Full Speed.
As hoopers, we never sprint full speed. You may feel like you do, but I'd guess 90% of hoopers don't even reach their absolute max velocity within a given MONTH. Why? It's not the nature of our game. We don't open up for 40-50+ yards to escape defenders. With that being said, there is undoubtedly a range of benefits we can reap from sprinting full speed in our training programs. Let me know your thoughts!
Ep. #7: Joerik Michiels on European Basketball, Games Approach to Training, & the Most Creative Hoops Facility in the World

Ep. #6: Coach Steve Turner: Coaching at a National Powerhouse, Adapting to the Ever-Changing Game, DC Basketball Culture
In Episode 6, I brought on the coach of my rival high school (funny how the world works), Coach Steve Turner. Steve is a great coach and an even better guy, so it's no surprise this was a good one. Coaches, players, and even parents will benefit from this one!

Ep. #5: Turn Your Nervousness Into Your Best Games
I don't think any hooper can truthfully say they've never been nervous before or during a game. It's natural when you care about something, like we care so much about the game of basketball. But there are ways we can not only eliminate this but use it to our advantage! I give you three practical methods and much more in this episode. Hope y'all enjoy!

Ep. #4: Working out By Yourself? How to Maximize Individual or Private Workouts
I talk a quite often about how group workouts should be prioritized over individual workouts in the realm of basketball training. But I promise you I'm not fully discounting individual workouts! They can undoubtedly be very valuable. In this podcast, I talk about what they're best for and why.
Ep. #3: Tyler Leclerc (@tjltraining) on "Figuring It Out" in Training, Getting the Most Out of Workouts, the Business Side of Training
My man Tyler Leclerc of TJL Training joined me for my second guest episode. We covered a number of topics from both a training and business perspective, so this episode is fantastic for both hoopers and coaches alike. Let me know your thoughts!
