    Episode 34-Multidirectional Speed for the Youth Athlete with Lee Taft

    On episode 34 of the Platform to Perform Podcast, I spoke with a coach widely regarded as the multidirectional speed guy, Lee Taft, as we spoke out:
     


    · Lee’s top down approach to analysing, improving and programming multidirectional speed


    · The reasons Lee looks to ‘get out of the way’ when it comes to coaching multidirectional speed


    · Logistics of coaching multidirectional speed within the P.E curriculum vs in an academy setting

    Episode 33-Conditioning Considerations for the Youth Athlete with Rob Milner

    Episode 33-Conditioning Considerations for the Youth Athlete with Rob Milner

    In episode 33 of the Platform to Perform Podcast I had the pleasure of talking to the Strength and Conditioning coach of the University of York Strength and owner of Go Performance, Rob Milner. Rob has an extensive experience of coaching athletes including developing youth athletes, university athletes, and members of the general population. As someone who recommends the pursuit of imperfect action, I absolutely loved this chat with Rob as we discussed:
    How he prioritises which aspect of his coaching to develop
    How to fill the buckets of athleticism that sport doesn’t when it comes to training children
    The difference between programming conditioning for youth athletes v adults

    Episode 32-Addressing S&C Mistakes in Combat Sports with Yas Parr

    On episode 32 of the Platform to Perform Podcast I spoke with author of Strength and Conditioning for Combat Sports, Yas Parr. When it comes to working with combat athletes, Yas is one of the brightest minds in the field as we discussed his thoughts on:
     


    · The difference between personal trainers and strength & conditioning coaches, (and how to identify these as a combat athlete looking to improve their physical preparation)


    · Sport simulation v training that actually carries over to sport


    · Managing asymmetries with combat athletes


    · Biobanding being used within youth combat sports

    Episode 31-The Youth Female Athlete with Erica Suter

    In episode 31 of the Platform to Perform Podcast, fresh out the back of the Female Athlete Summit, I spoke with the Soccer Queen, Erica Suter. Erica’s holistic approach to training youth athletes is an aspect that shone through in this podcast as we spoke about:
    How to balance ball work with the off the ball work for young footballers
    How she structures her mentoring sessions for the young girls she works with
    How she would approach conditioning for the youth female athlete considering the Youth Physical Development model stance on the matter
    The importance of stimulating the brain when it comes to training young athletes
    Not getting shiny object syndrome about new technology in strength and conditioning

    Episode 30-Creating Supermovers with Howard Green

    Episode 30-Creating Supermovers with Howard Green

    In episode 30 of the Platform to Perform Podcast I spoke with Head of Sports Science at Bolton Arena, and Royal Marines Commmando, Howard Green. Howard’s journey from the Royal Marines, to being in the box at Wimbledon during his time working with the likes of Naomi Broady and Ana Ivanovic carries with it some fascinating life lessons about work ethic, humility and self-reflection as we discussed:
    Holding his athletes accountable to high expectations whilst not being cognisant of not wearing his green beret for everyone
    His model for co-ordination training, and eliminating the ‘fuzziness’ and monkey see monkey do attitude towards co-ordination activities
    Bringing tennis and S&C coaches onto the same page with his supermovers program

    Episode 29-Strength, Play and the Growth Mindset of Calisthenics

    Episode 29-Strength, Play and the Growth Mindset of Calisthenics

    In episode 29 of the Platform to Perform Podcast I spoke with co-founder of the School of Calisthenics, Tim Stevenson. As someone who has been a member of the School of Calisthenics Virtual Classroom for several months, I couldn’t wait to get Tim’s thoughts on:
    whether calisthenics is the answer to improving strength to bodyweight issues that kids struggle with these days, and if it is…how it should best be delivered in a school setting
    what the movement science literature tells us about skill acquisition and how this applies to learning new moves in calisthenics
    the unique advantages that calisthenics might provide to rehab settings
    the yin yang relationship between strength and play, and how best to nurture the two
