Terrific conversations and ideas!
Wonderful content on a wide variety of subjects! I always learn something new, and the common sense delivery is appreciated. I especially like how Dr. Tilley is transparent about what he doesn’t know, and is open to accepting new ideas, and is honest about his own growth and learning from past mistakes. Our industry and the athletes he works with is better because of what he contributes.
Dr. Dave Tilley is awesome
I have been listening to all of the podcasts and reading all of Dave’s materials on Shift and his Hero Lab as they are highly informative to us coaches as to strength and conditioning training in order to prevent overuse injuries, positive coaching methodologies and physical therapies for helping our gymnasts through painful injuries and their comebacks. The podcasts are always high quality in production but most importantly in the guest speakers he has on. His books are at times tedious unless you are in the medical field and his strength and conditioning lingo is difficult to decipher, but in the end with his YouTube videos showing the movements, they kick your coaching skills up several notches!
I stepped away from coaching gymnastics for 10 years to have kids and a focus on my family and I have recently started again and I am so happy to have all the amazing information that Dave has available to us on his podcast. I really wish this podcast had been around 10 years ago. All the information he shares is truly invaluable and I am so grateful to have found this amazing resource and that he is helping to make the gymnastics community a more wholistically safe place for gymnasts by helping educate coaches.
