    Sport Science != Smoke and Mirrors: Using Data Within Coaching

    Sport Science != Smoke and Mirrors: Using Data Within Coaching

    ‌In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm discussing an issue I hear too often regarding sport science and it's applied nature within high performance sport. I outline a typical day and the many touchpoints with sport science, data-led decision making, and the applied nature of scientific processes on sport outcomes. This was a fun episode to record because I get on a roll talking about this material.

    As a reminder, our Random Shows shows are a quick 15-25 minute episode where I typically discuss current industry trends, research reads, current events, and occasionally offer my insights into the training process that we're undertaking each week. This episode ran longer because sport science and it's applied usage is an area I'm incredibly passionate about. i go into these random shows without notes but full of passion, insights, and opinions. I believe with conviction, you'll take away something interesting from this show and I hope it delivers you a little bit of value in your day.

    Dan Howells - High Performance Coaching

    Dan Howells - High Performance Coaching

    In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm speaking with Industry Veteran and High Performance Practitioner, Dan Howells. Dan has experience at US Ski & Snowboard, the English Institute of Sport (EIS), Rugby Union and Rugby 7s, and most recently, in the Major League Baseball (MLB) Houston Astros organization. You do not want to miss this show!

    Dan recently formed Collaborate Sports during the initial lockdowns through COVID as a means of connecting developing coaches and practitioners through a personal development focus. Since then, he has reached over 400 hundred practitioners from varying countries using the personal development platform he has created. He provides opportunities to others through Bespoke Coaching/Mentoring, Monthly Interactive Webinars with guest presenters, and the Interactive Personal Development (IPD) Programme.

    The IPD was the main focus of building a platform to network other coaches together in a learning environment and make mentorship more affordable for younger and developing coaches. The IPD allows 10-12 coaches to partake in a 6-month course, focusing on specific content dependent on the Technical or Non Technical nature of the programmes.

    Live attendance means interaction is central to the programme where attendees can take the information shared and navigate how to apply it to their own world through the help of Dan and others in the programme. The costs are more affordable due to the group nature of the programme, and the online platform provided to allow coaches to communicate between monthly meet ups means that attendees get to coach and help each other daily as required. 

    Currently, the S&C Technical IPD is open for enrollment with spaces still available for the commencement on January 31st 2021. The programmes reach coaches on all time zones based on running 2 cohorts at any one time. If interested in learning more about the course, you can visit http://collaboratesports.com for more info, or email Dan direct at info@collaboratesports.com to ask questions or arrange an informal discussion about the opportunities Collaborate Sports aims to provide.

    Dan can be found on twitter as @howellsdan and on Instagram with @collaborate_sports

    Pratik Patel - The Man on Fire

    Pratik Patel - The Man on Fire

    In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm speaking with former NFL New York Giants Director of Performance Nutrition and Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach, my friend, Pratik Patel.

    Patel was closing in on a four year stint as the New York Giants’ Director of Performance Nutrition/Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach prior to making a personal decision to leave the role. We discuss this in the show. Prior to his time in the NFL, he served as University of Oregon's (PAC 12) Director of Sports Nutrition. Patel also shared similar roles at Michigan State University (Go Green!) and Kansas State University.

    I had a blast recording the show with Tik and I know you'll take away some GREAT gems from it!

    You can catch up with Pratik on twitter and Instagram at @PratikxPatel.

    Leadership Lessons: Business Hallways to the Weight Room Floor

    Leadership Lessons: Business Hallways to the Weight Room Floor

    In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm discussing many of the leadership lessons I've learned, through the successes and failures of operating in elite sport. I discuss tactics to help empower leadership and decisions among your athletes and co-workers. I talk about leaning into your weaknesses and being vulnerable. I discuss ways you can take the first step and challenge others to co-elevate to new heights. I think you'll get A LOT out of this show.

    As a reminder, our Random Shows shows are a quick 15-25 minute episode where I typically discuss current industry trends, research reads, current events, and occasionally offer my insights into the training process that we're undertaking each week.

    In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm discussing my application of velocity based training techniques (VBT) and the application of training along the force-velocity curve.
