    #43 - Dr Mike Grevlos - Psychology, Motivation, Neuroscience

    Dr Mike Grevlos is a professor of Psychology at the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota. He teaches courses in sport psychology, motivation and emotion, and behavioral neuroscience.

    He has also served as a motivation and performance coach to golfers and other athletes for over 20 years.

    In this episode we cover a lot of topics related to the mind and performance, misconceptions Dr Grevlos sees in the golf psychology world, the value of meditation for golfers, how neuroplasticity changes with age, and the key role of focus during practice for making changes in how we move. 

    Just a reminder before we get started that Fit For Golf has it’s own app with programs to suit all levels of golf and fitness. There are options for at home and at the gym, and if you’re skeptical about getting started there are workouts of just 5 minutes in duration!

    #42 - Greg Grosicki PhD - Aging Athletically

    Greg Grosicki, Ph.D., CEP,  is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology and Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory in Georgia Southern University.

    Follow him on Twitter and Instagram: @DrGregGrosicki

    Greg is extremely interested in how we can alter lifestyle to  positively influence physical capacity as we age. He is also a high level endurance athlete, having completed Ironman Hawaii in 9 hours and 22 mins.

    I first came across his work reading a research paper he was the lead author on that investigated the effects of aging on slow and fast twitch muscle fiber mass, strength, and power. 

    In this interview we dig into what he found, and how you can implement this information to age more athletically. 

    If you are interested in a high level of physical function into later years for both golf and life, this is one you will enjoy.

    #41 - Greg Lehman - Chiropractors vs PT's, injuries, recovery, and the science of stretching

    #41 - Greg Lehman - Chiropractors vs PT's, injuries, recovery, and the science of stretching

    After a 5 month break, the Fit For Golf Podcast is back, and I hope to bring you more frequent episodes. In today’s episode I talk with Greg Lehman, who is a trained chiropractor, physical therapist, and strength and conditioning coach. Greg is a very keen golfer and has also done some of his research studies in golf. 

    We talk about the differences and similarities between chiros and physios, common misunderstandings, good vs bad practice, and things to look out for with a practitioner if you are looking for one. 

    We also delve into whether swing mechanics can predict the likelihood of injury, the science of stretching, and why most things touted as improving recovery really don’t do much.

    Just before we get started I want to let everyone know of a promotion that is currently running on the Fit For Golf App. You can try the app for $1 for 1 month by using the discount code TRYFFG. Go to fitforgolf.app to sign up for the app and take advantage of this offer. 
    There are home and gym workout programs suitable for all levels of fitness and golf skill.

    #40 - Erik Barzeski - Long Term Golf Development

    #40 - Erik Barzeski - Long Term Golf Development

    In this episode I am joined by Erik Barzeski. Erik is an excellent golf coach whom I have personally worked with on my own game through video analysis of swings recorded at rage sessions, which were absolutely fantastic.

    I first learned about Erik after reading the book he co authored, Lowest Score Wins.
    I reached out to Erik to let him know how impressed I was by the book, and we have stayed in contact since, discussing a wide range of golf improvement related topics.

    I am always impressed with Erik’s knowledge, so was glad to finally have him as a guest on the podcast.

    Just before we get started, a reminder that Fit For Golf has its own app. Golfers of all ages and all standards are making huge strides in their golf performance, fitness, and health. There are programs to suit everyone and there is an abundance of material to suit people working out at home or in the gym.

    #39 - Jason Ochart - Learning about speed from baseball

    #39 - Jason Ochart - Learning about speed from baseball

    Jason Ochart is the guest in this episode. Jason has an extensive background working in baseball, specifically trying to help hitters increase their swing speed. He works for Driveline, a baseball performance training organisation taking the baseball world by storm, and was recently hired by the Boston Red Sox to be their director of hitting and program design.

    I was very curious to Pick Jason’s brain about the assessment and training of baseball hitters trying to increase swing and see if there was things we could transfer to golf.

    Jason brought a wealth of information and I hope you enjoy learning from him as much as I did. 

    I hope you enjoy the podcast and please let me know if you have any feedback.

Episode 43 with Dr. Grevlos

Very informative and interesting podcast with Mike. Some really great insights about motivation and learning.

Enjoyable and Informative

I like the discussions - it’s helpfull to hear not just the findings and conclusions, but also supporting research evidence summary and scientific rationale.
I also like the personal anecdotes, and “lessons learned” that help a great deal to put things in perspective.
As I’m working through the back catalog of episodes, I just finished #15, and with all due respect to Dr. Campbell, based on the comments, I don’t think he understood (at least at the time of recording) what Aimpoint is or how it works. It seems quite silly to essentially put Aimpoint in the same category as having a lucky ballmark …

The best

Mike interviews smart people and does a great job of both letting them speak and also getting some wonderful information out. The best podcast for golf training out there.
