ASCA Podcast #53 - Daniel Kadlec ASCA Podcast

    • Sports

Daniel Kadlec is currently the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for Softball Western Australia and Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for Claremont WFC in collaboration with Edith Cowan University while completing a PhD in Sports Science sponsored by VALD Performance. Daniel was previously a strength and conditioning coach in a private facility (PlusD Sports) in Solingen, Germany for the past seven years. He has worked with various teams, including Professional Handball, Germans Women's Rugby 7s, and the centralised women's Judo athletes. In addition to being an Australian Strength and Conditioning Association Professional Coach Accreditation Scheme - Professional (PCAS-P) coach, he is a certified sports physiotherapist. His areas of research interest are biomechanics and coaching science.

QUOTES
“Athlete rely on certain movement strategies when changing direction but when they can't use those strategies, the best case is they get beaten by an opponent, the worst case is the rupture an ACL”
“To figure out an athlete's joint dominance, get them to move or jump and get an idea of which joints go through big ranges of motion. This will give you an idea of where they are generating torque.“
“Gym strong athletes seem to be more hip dominant when changing direction whereas weaker athletes in the gym seem to rely on their knee extensors which might influence ACL injury risk”
“I used to try and solve all my movement problems with gym solutions”
“Make athletes anti-fragile so they can experience as much technical training as possible”
“You are doing your field sport athletes a disservice if you are not programming linear speed weekly”

SHOWNOTES
1) Daniel’s journey from Germany to UK to Australia
2) Daniel's research on isolated and multi-joint capacities and how they affect movement strategies in planned/unplanned change of direction tasks
3) Using a constraint-based approach to alter movement strategies around hip, knee or ankle for change of direction
4) Practical recommendations for planned/unplanned change of direction and the contribution of medial/lateral hip
5) Daniel's approach to speed development and the use of running drills (e.g. A skips versus sprinting
6) A sample speed/COD session and how to manipulate entry speed, cutting angle and reaction within a session
