“I got to see how much I didn’t know as a practitioner, and that really motivated me to somehow find a way to give back to the community.”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 80th episode of Outside The Rack brought to you by Kinetic Performance the makers of Gymaware. In this show we are going to try to dive a little deeper into the minds of the top practitioners in the world of sport performance to learn a bit more about who they actually are and how they got to where they are at today. Today we are joined by Antonio Squillante, of the Clinical Exercise Research Center at the University of Southern California and faculty member at Setanta College. Antonio, thanks for being with us today.
Before we start, who is Antonio Squillante?
A former American football player who is from Italy who came to The States to coach high level athletes, who has recently shifted more to the academic side and working with the NSCA.
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career?
The summer of 2016 at Olympic Trials in Eugene Oregon, witnessing other high level coaches preparing athletes for their events.
2) If you could ask one question and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
How much does strength really matter when it comes to performance in sport?
3) What’s your escape?
What keeps me grounded is prioritizing things in life and spending time with family.
