The Surprising Science Behind Epic Athletes
"Dave in the interest of full journalistic disclosure. Here it feels important to mention that long before you became this new york times bestselling author and podcast host and the best sports science reporter in america. We worked together at sports illustrated in the mid to late two thousands and we used to share a wall yet in full disclosure. I believe i have a winning record against you in office table ping pong. That's stats to verify that i'm sticking with that. I recall destroying but maybe there is revisionist history. Oh that's so funny. So we both legitimately believe that another episode on cognitive biases. I am glad dave to have you here to clarify something else. Which is that in private for years. I've basically used you to help me understand what the very best athletes in the world are teaching us about ourselves in the human body and i get to that in public now on this podcast with you here because in your two books the sports gene and in range you tumble down into the rabbit. Hole of what is called performance science so before we get into all of that and double down with you. How did you get there in the first place. That is an interesting question. And i have to give a little bit of a disclaimer here. There's a sad part to the story. But i played a bunch of sports football basketball baseball in high school. Before i got into into running and ran track and field in college i started getting interested in physiology basically a lot of runners do but also had this sort of tragic event where a young guy who was a training partner mind. One of the top rank is in the country in his event. Eight hundred meters. Yeah i and family of jamaican immigrants. Who is going to go to. College actually died at the end of a race a few steps after race in my local newspaper he had a heart attack and i kind of wondered what does that. What does that even mean. And this sort of long story short set me on a path toward investigating physiology and it turned out. He had this genetic condition. That was sort of misdiagnosed. I'm interested in genetics. Which one thing led to another and ended up writing the sports team.
Nervous system survival mode and how to get back to thriving with Nathan Chilton
"Thank you so much for coming on the show today. I'm really excited to chat. So i would love you to tell us more about yourself. And what's your story. So how did you come to be where you are today as a chiropractor and wellness coach specializing. In what you do now thinking about me so much pleasure. Well i've always been interested in the human body and a group with mammalian. Sports are always had books around the house and spines nazi books. So i've always had an interest in the human body and chiropractic clay. I was playing basketball blow and my back at the age of seventeen. I think and that was that was my first experience themselves a chiropractor at this point. It was very mechanical pain based approach in late to ron and started studying sports science halfway through degrade house thinking what to do with my life. Decided to apply for chiropractic got into chiropractic in two thousand and eight graduated in twenty twelve on then. It wasn't really until after graduating. I started to really appreciate and understand. What chiropractic is and why would offer to people and it was more of a vied to the stick but wellness approach rather than mechanical symptom approach. So that's how go into chiropractic. And and i'm no back casually been a blessing truly grateful for didn't really say his work which apply lookie lookie and nonsense but it's changed my life but is because of the power and how it changes people's lives basically unease abou the philosophy of chiropractic is. The buddy is able to heal itself. If is in the right environment and the nervous system is the system processes the environment whether it be into entity externally so working with a person with the spine to create ease in the system is balancing not stress. Response the synthetics responds in the parsing responds on. Then when the body's in state it can do wonderful things. So yeah that's how i go into it and that's why. I'm extremely passionate about about the subject about chiropractic. Going back to what you said you know when you thought when you were a teenager and you got injured that it was just you know physical manipulation and stuff like that. I think a lot of people assume that. That's what chiropractic is so talk a little bit more about how let's actually let's start with like what are the biggest misconceptions about the chiropractic. Practice a good way Talk to patients about so car isn't just about and treating pain or treating condition. Yes we can help with. Simpson such babies headaches. Sciatic care and shoulder pain elbow pain. But we all going from the approach of putting the buddy in a state of ease to a healthy function nervous system when your body is more power sympathetic dominant is able to relax digest. Hill undo a supposed to because as a human human beings. We designed to heal in self-regulate designed to accumulate almonds in pain and problems route life and never get better for example. Could you finger hairs on own is no What you need stitches but instead it will halonen starting after the stitches. Aided your you a native to cook. So that's how i explain it. Yes we treat. We help conditions. We don't treat them is the buddy that does the halen when it's in a state of easing and that's why i'm really passionate property. Last two years is the effect of stress and five flyers funds because it's so linked to the function of the spine on a dysfunctional spine can create predominantly sympathetic patterns within the spine whether it be from physical stress emotional stress chemicals stresses they will have a stress on the nervous system. Yes so we talk about stress and the
The Ideal Nutrition And How To Use Supplements
"Hi chris welcome to twenty minutes it s. Thank you so much for having me. Yeah can you start off by telling us a little bit more about your background. And what aesthetic. Greens is about sure muslims. Chris i'm originally from new zealand. Which left me with the monica north. America of chris deke end. I am the proud founder and ceo of a company called athletic greens. This company was originally formed out of a search for a solution to my own problem. Which was that. I wasn't absorbing neutrons properly. And i ended up basically going on a journey to sort of addressing health problems that led to a clinic in phoenix spending a ton of money doing every blood stool saliva test. You can possibly imagine to have a group very smart people. Tell me that look You just don't appear to be absorbing nutrients properly which was a shock to me. Because up until that time. I thought i'd been doing pretty much everything right as it related to. How approach health nutrition and how it approach supplementation and sort of led me to the drawing board to think through an rethink through everything. I thought i knew about nutrition and health and everything else so long story short. I'm customer number. One of what has become a very popular way of removing the fiction from covering nutritional basis every day without cornerstone product grains which. I'm excited to be a part of and we've of lawrence two thousand nine two thousand ten. The proper film launch early two thousand eleven and since then have gone through fifty directions to continually. Look at how can we deliver what. Wait what we consider to be. Sort of that premium. Bist centralist approach to cover nutritional basis every day. Love it so. Tell me more about why. Your body couldn't absorb nutrients well enough. We'll so i have a background. In health and exercise. I studied sport science degree at open university. Which i dropped out of with two classes to go to stop my first business. I'm an entrepreneur through through and have just kicked this lifelong passion around health and fitness. And i was falling. What's considered the nineteen ten approach which was basically. Look if you do everything right. Non-extendible time the other ten percent meta too much and i'd had a few significant number of sort of respiratory tract fictions over the years and the committed to grow infrequency took that i was taking antibiotics for something three to four times a week. And i think. I had a couple of different Forces all collide at once. But at the end of the day i had very few good. Bacteria had a really torn up gi system. And i was eating very significant levels of both protein in a variety of vegetables and supplementing. With what i thought at the time was a great multivitamin and i ended up finding that i was in the eighth to twelfth percentile on a lot of the central bottoms as minerals and even mino- essence. And so when these guys came back from that testing and said hey digital's none of them. Why this right. We have some of these minerals in the twelfth percentile I was really shocked. And just turn out have all sorts of problems traditionally with the gut and the solution from these guys was to say. Look west put you on a basic limitation diet and they gave me at the time one hundred dollars a day customized my blood bike in st nutrition regime. And like i said. I saw two vessels taking fifty horse stalls a day and i just realized it must be a better way so this way back then led me on this journey to seek out experts on. I never claimed to be the sort of exit decide. Look at what good nutrition really was and start to understand things like what got health what is by ability y generally do you wanna get nutrition nutrients as much as possible from food. What food quality is some of these other dynamics at the lead me on a journey that led to us creding athletic rim. Yeah i mean you believe that you can achieve your best self. without nurturing. Your body with writing attrition right so in your opinion then after you've talked to all those experts what the right nutrition look like for me. I think for every human. There's a couple of different pieces. And i think we all want to cover off most basic nutrient basis an never put out any Around sort of supplementation being anything other than a path towards optimization i think food is i and you should always focus on food but in terms of what is great nutrition. My general framework is pretty simple. I think you want to eat to maintain your blood sugar levels and a healthy range. I think you want to eat a diet that for you does not lead to any sort of dynamic where you're very inflammatory environment. And i think you want to eat a sort of respite of metros in total calories that match your lifestyle and where that in line you wanna make sure. You're focused on food quality. Health quality pieces Seems to be of looked so often. And his principal or nutrient density and then the other variables around william micronutrients are coming from and the quality of and sort of how much cobb some extra protein. How much fat. That's a lot of those are gonna come down to individual preference potentially and then also just how do you live your life that attrition demands of someone who's on a bike aggressively training for two to france. They're going to be very different from someone. Likes to go for walks every day. And maybe it's the german two or three days a week for
Interview With Gunnar Breivik
"And im your host not gotten meaningful. Sport is a series of discussions on the y and how involvement is sport than physical activity can be an important part of a life worth living. If you are interested in the theme you might also want to check out meaningful sport dot com there. You can find podcast. Show notes read a blog and access many resources for further explorations of meaningful sport. This is the third and the final part of our discussion with goon. Who is a professor emeritus. At the norwegian school of sport sciences professor bribes work has been foundational in philosophy of sport and it was a great honor for me to have him in the podcast sharing his thoughts and and his exciting work. I will briefly sum up the previous episodes in case you haven't listened to them already. Part one was an exploration of heidegger philosophy and how it can be applied to our thinking. Round sport goner charities working on technology of the sporting human being which builds upon heidegger philosophy but also extends into novel new directions. That can help us understand how we find ourselves in the sporting world in the second part we discussed heidegger notion of authenticity. An how governor has used the when exploring skydiving. We also discussed existentialist ideas about breakdown and temporarily and how to apply these ideas in sport and today in this third and final part of our discussion. We move away from existentialism and focus on ecological sport which has been one of the key topics of goners. Most recent work concerns of sustainability are among the pressing concerns of our collective human agenda worldwide. But what would ecologically sustainable and ecologically acceptable sport. Look like how much do we need to rethink the way we practice sport or even the fundamental ideas of sport. You know a society. Let's listen to what gunar has to say. I think now it would be really a nice time point to talking time so Let's let's move on a little bit to discuss Some of your reason work. You have written about this already a long time ago. But now you have In in some of your reason work started to connect sports. today's pressing global concerns about sustainability. And an and what is going to happen to our our planet as a whole in terms of the environmental crisis. So you've pointed an inspired philosophy With few exceptions there hasn't been Discussions about what is what would be an ecologically acceptable or sustainable sport. And what would it look like. And so One of the things that you have drawn upon in your own work of exploring this ecological sustainable sport mr norwegian philosopher hardness so Let's let's start explorations of the that topic area and you can. You can tell a little bit more about the arneses work on on deep ecology whether on unnecessity interesting in many ways First of all he will set a leading national philosopher when he discovered so to say the importance of the the new science of ecology which came up in the sixties of the costumes. Famous Night in sixty two Pity tips on how they change the world there Use of the new system theory asks the ecology and on s became interested in that he had another also so to say it in spindle saas philosophy and Which is also looking at the account.

A Conversation With Dr Anna Kavoura
"Which focuses and understanding how tender informs meaning in sport. I feel that this is such an important topic that it should have featured in this podcast already a long time ago indeed sport is a very gendered institution and although there has been a lot of effort to tackle gender-based inequalities in the past few decades a lot of work certainly remains to be done in today's episode. We explore how gender identity intersects with athletic identity with the focus on women's martial law. We discuss what this course is dominant in the sporting spaces and how these impact those who are unable or unwilling to accept and live according to these courses. We then move on to exploring the possibilities of alternative meanings discourses and practices of sport and finally discuss whether and how sporting spaces that are not based on a binary understanding of gender can be organized as well as the ethical imperative to organize sporting spaces that are inclusive safe for all our guest has completed several interesting research projects on gender in sport. She completed her PhD in sports Sciences at the University of Georgia Line Finland, which focused on understanding woman's identity negotiations in competitive Judo cultures after defending her PhD she continued working. Postdoc researcher at the University of a scallop in a project that focused on tackling discrimination against gender and sexual minorities in sports and physical education contexts off. She then move on to the school of sport and service management at the University of Brighton and currently works as opposed to researcher in a project titled transforming gender boundaries in sport, which is funded by The Finnish cultural Foundation. Welcome doctor onychophora and thank you so much for joining me for today's interesting and very important discussions. Hi Nora. Thank you for having me. I'm delighted that we are we are now here discussing this and we have talked about this already along a long time ago. And so now we finally get going and I cannot emphasize enough how much I feel that this is a very important topic to address and and for us to understand meaning in sport, we always have to be thinking about this gendered element of meaning and and how are cultural practices also shaped those meanings. So I'd be very delighted to hear a little bit about how you have become a nurse color and Willa sport Sports color, of course as well. But your research in the past ten years already has always been addressing these gender issues. So perhaps a little bit about the background story of of how you became a gender research. Yeah. Sure. So yes, I am always a little bit hesitant to call myself a gender school because as you said my background is in sports science and majoring in sports psychology, and I think it was sometime during my towards the end of my master studies when I started realizing that this focus on performance alone thought sometimes like mainstream sport psychological theories are all about especially when it is done in a way that neglects that context and the situational characteristics of Faith dividual such as gender race class religion and and so on like this way of work does not in English. Ask me that Matt and I became especially interested in gender. I think my interest like also comes from my personal experiences my experiences, for example of being young and female athlete in the mail domain of martial arts. But also experiences that go way back before that experiences of birth of a girl growing up in the patriarchal culture of Greece. For example,
Training Topics of Speed and Power Development in American Football and Field Sports
"Hey everybody welcome to another show, so this one is a little different and instead of me, interviewing someone or instead of throwing out a Q. and A. and answering your questions I'm actually being guest interviewed by a guy who has an absolute stud resume in the field, and that is Josh hingst. I will say so. Josh I I meant to interview him for a long time now, but Josh flip the script on me and asked if he could interview me on a speed and power in related training topics for American football. When I say football really no matter what sport you work with it, it's this is really applying concepts of of speed bio mechanics for team sports so so American football team. Sport and really translating sprinting speed, and by a mechanic topics really into that environment the. Josh has a superstar resume. He's the head strength coach of the two thousand eighteen super bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. He's had past experience with the Jacksonville Jaguars the University of Nebraska the Atlanta Falcons as well as Florida State University. Josh multi talented, not only is he a strength coach and Ex Anna successful. When at that doing? A lot of work particularly with the Eagles in integration of Sports, science, and really being on the cutting edge there, he also is a sports nutritionist and has done a lot of work in the past in the realms of sports nutrition at some of his previous stops in twenty thirteen, he co-authored Athletes Guide to sports supplements out when he was at the University of Nebraska. I I met Josh back in two thousand four in Barcelona Spain, and it's been phenomenal to be able to stay in touch with him. Since then I'm super humbled. He wanted to interview me. This is like a it was a great opportunity to share my thoughts and put some thoughts together on these topics, but again just super humbling to be interviewed by a person with such awesome resume who I've been trying to get as a typical interview. Guests for this show so anyways we'll. We'll get onto it here just a couple of quick topics that we are. are going to run through is sprint a sprint, development and sprint mechanic development and speed drills particularly as it pertains to team sport. We're GONNA get into concepts on training foot. some particular concepts that I've that really stuck with me from a dairy bar that I've learned from him and how that Pertain Sport? We're GONNA. Talk about is metric, hamstring, injury, prevention and more. This was a really fun talking. I, hope you guys enjoy it so so let's get onto it episode to ten guest interviewer. Josh, thinks, and I have any conversation on speed and power topics. All I. I wanted to start off by Sharon. You know just the thank you for You know it's not often that you know people. Like me. Get a chance to thank people like you that you know that you're learning from that. You're progressing from. N. A just appreciated that. You know it's been a really good thing. I that there's others in the field like Mike in my shoes. That want to say that and. Yeah so I. Just I mean a lot of different thoughts. I mean. I think probably for me. You know I think you know a lot of the questions that you of have chewed on and and some of your interests. It's fun because I think we can all see where your brains at sometimes based on some of the people that you're bringing on the podcast with. Health or Of different things like that, but I think it's all really good good stuff, but I guess the first question I had is is probably one that you've answered a lot I think it's just more or less your take on some speed mechanics and running drills, and those application teams or seen I. Think a lot of people in my view. Shoes are like. Like well. We're not going to change that now. You know we're getting twenty three year old athletes in you know. Are we wasting our time in those types of things, or are you feel what you would do? You think that we can make make change. In how much time and energy do we devote to these things? Yeah, so that's a good question. I would say just in my time working with team sports in the running situation and thinking about it, and watching and observing as well I, think the I'll start with the good, actually because I think that it's in my nature to sometimes be a little contrarian as I was mentioning before we start recording I try to stay balanced. Try to really still like both sides of the equation, so with the common sprint drills as the bees, and whatever else there isn't all the marching type stuff 'cause I guess if we think of Sprint Joe. We think of a march. It's not going to fast horizontally. You're slowing the horizontal component down so there's some things in the vertical plane that. You can work on. It's all start with the positives I i. do think that there's always a bandwidth I mentioned this and speed strength, but I think that even if there's a disconnect between the actual mechanics in a marching bass drill for an athlete who might be a very muscular type athlete like they're very muscle driven they they tend to really squat deep in their movements, which isn't a bad for being a football player and Rennick Selah Rating. That's really important. But for someone who may not be in touch with their feet so much I think it gives a good opportunity to give them exposure for some of the vertical contacts ply metric in some ways so I I think that's okay. I don't have a problem with that I. Think it's the poll, the pole or was it dried mock or I think he's Polish when he came up with that stuff. It was really because they couldn't run I. don't know how many indoor tracks they had, and they just had to come up with a creative way to maintain. Muscle specific conditioning for sprinters, so if we think of if I'm a football player, a basketball player, and most of my movement is with a lower center of mass, and it's a little more specific to half the change. Directions quickly which I. wouldn't if I was a football player, I wouldn't WanNa really run like a sprinter because that's sometimes I think about if I'm spending more time in the air by nature, I need to the the the time for me to make a decision is is more or less are basically it's going to if it takes me longer to put my foot down. Now I can't change directions as quickly and I will say and I don't WanNa deviate from the question of sprint because I'm going to get there, but me and a dairy bar have been talking just in attract context about strategies to athletes run the four hundred and a lot of these athletes who are dying at the end of the race die because they don't. They can't switch strategies like they run one way. Way Whereas Wade. Van Niekerk does different things with his arms and legs on the Ben. The key switches strategy so this makes out I do think it is valuable for a football player or team sport athlete to be able to have different strategies, but I wouldn't I would never watch a football player, run and think man. You need to run as long as you're not running away. It's GonNa. Get you hurt. Excessive anterior till and the backside mechanics, poor backside macaques that come with the anterior till I. Get that we want to minimize those, but I don't necessarily need to see. Run same

I should get on the podcast so excited to have you on, and you're not our usual guest. You don't directly work in tennis but I. Think what you can offer can be really valuable to our. Our listeners who are mix of parents, young players coaches on so federation director, so it's going to be really great chat book before we get started. Can you tell our listeners a bit about yourself? Yeah, so I've been a string conditioning coach now for over fifteen years in, and maybe we'll kind of work from presidents to path, and so my my current role is as head of athletic. Science for the Irish rugby football you over here living in Dublin with my family, since two thousand fifteen, and just to give people insight into to what that long title actually needs. I have the fortunate opportunity to work across all national and our four provincial teams overseeing if you would in supporting the division, the execution and an application of all athletic performance and sport science. Let's say initiatives, which if I'm on very much so in lockstep with medical nutrition and rugby staff, but the really cool thing about. About Irish rugby is if you would we operate like team of teams, and we have the domain level weeds working for Irish rugby, then can support and connect all national and provincial teams, and obviously arm into supporting our domestic game as well and so my my role is probably seventy percent on the leadership, the vision coach, education side and thirty percent on the ground, but does background very much so in the trenches, helping people get bigger faster stronger for teams fourth primarily, but yet that interest prior. Prior to coming to Ireland, I worked for a company called xhosas orally athlete performance for the better part of the decade, and that was a Phillies high-performance company that is a multinational works across the United States in very country in private high performance, which is pretty big business in the United States in what I did. There was throughout the year. The string conditioning coach go primarily. My area was working with athletes transitioning into the NFL notably by the NFL. Combine and so I would help collegiate American. American football players physically prepare themselves to go to the NFL combine which happens at the end of February and the physical interview of sorts where they go run a forty vertical jump abroad job done so it's fairly big business in the united. Thanks to help. Let's say guide. These players transition to the combine to the draft, and then inevitably to the NFL and the other half of my job, so to speak was most certainly in coach education, and so it's always been a huge passion of. And when I started with excess, we were running these kind of weeklong coaching mentorship programs in Phoenix Arizona and by the time I left ten years later we at online certifications in running courses in over twenty five different countries, and so very much I see myself as one part coach and one part, a coach educator, and in kind of the reds thread throughout that really is just that it's my interest in coaching, interesting communication, or how he is moved it professionals whether you're a parent or a tennis coach. How? How we impact to others and their ability to learn to move through our language to our
USTA Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian Hainline
"Yesterday Dr. Brian. Hey Line he is the chief medical officer for the Ncaa College Sports for our international audience. He's also the chief medical officer for the US Open and the USDA and has been since the early nineties. He is also a former college tennis player. So today's discussion is a lot about what it will take for sports to come back what we make of this closed-door scenario and then we talk specifically tennis. What are the unique challenges tennis bases and whether the twenty twenty? Us Open can happen. If so under what circumstances so Thought after a lot of speculation from lay people who was time we consulted someone who had real expertise so here does a great job is Dr Brian Halen. I I've seen you quoted a number of times and I feel like everyone has become an instant expert on sports science and And Virology these days. But I figured we've talked to a real expert and let's let's just start. Generally I mean what? What are you seeing out there? And what's going to be the biggest challenge for sports to restart I think the Two biggest challenges are really having surveillance. That's firmly in place and and really really good testing. So you can imagine and you know resocialised and you can't imagine re socializing in sport if you don't have both of those you know once we start opening up where no longer saying. We're just trying to flatten the curb or or were trying to really make certain. Our healthcare systems are not overwhelmed him so New York City which is a great example of that. The healthcare system were ninety percent of the hospital were devoted to taking care of patients who had colds and were in respiratory failure. We're now opening up. Doing procedures elective procedures. Insult going forward. If this is GonNa work you have to be able to test large segments of society and especially in sport and you have to do contact tracing and do what's right when there's a positive so it really does fundamentally rest on those two principles and you're just to be clear. You're talking about testing testing. And not just the temperature checks that's correct. And and it's two types of testing the indoor being you know even good advances and even in the last week so The rapid diagnostic testing shifting to what we may call point of care testing where you can even have on your your own kit in. And that's two of. That's going to be evolving in two ways. One is on looking for the virus particles so the PC artas to to see if you really are wait on infectious and even the serology testing if there wolves out properly and we really get good out. There's two ways to look at serology. One is to see if you have immunity but also when you first are infected with a virus your immune system kicks in right away. What's it's called? Gm and that may even evolve as as a screening tool for for seeing someone has accused effect infection so I think bolts are going to really advance in the next month and then were GonNa be strategies for how to work with teams without and you think testing is available and sufficient. I mean I don't know if you saw the UFC card that they held Saturday night and Florida. They went through. I think was twelve hundred tests for one. Sporting event and people eyebrows raised over that you think we have enough test to pull the saw. I think we're going to get there so so we had a a meeting. We meaning the chief medical officers of sport on so I was representing amateurs or Z. A. And then you had the chief medical officers of the NFL NBA Major League Baseball. H Own. We're all meeting with Dr Birch's office in the White House and we emphasize we said. We can't do this if we don't have adequate tests so you know the White House response is the usual response. Were were increasing them substantially but. I think what's happening in ups obscene. This happened as a least at university levels. They're either working with a hospital or university lab so they can take care of their whole campus but the private companies have have really been rubbing up as well and you know that's challenging and on on the one hand you WanNa make certain Dutch. You aren't testing for one segment of society while the rest of the state is still prioritizing test and they only have enough so but I I think the way the private companies and and and even with you know I just saw another. Fda approval reverse serology. Tusk come in our yesterday. So it is starting to substantially increase where. I think we're going to be moving into a different APP testing on we. We keep talking about the possibility of sports returning but I wonder how granular you get to what extent UC distinctions between sports and the benchmark for football is GONNA be much different than the benchmark for golf no absolutely so So so you know aside from the event Florida this past weekend so the PGA tour will be hosting event and in Texas the first week of June and on and they happen. You know a really cool without getting into too much detail but you know you. Essentially we have to create what's called an inner bubble and then you have outer bubbles out in the inner bubble was who would be really going to be around the athletes. So it's the athletes the core of athletics. Sam personnel the coaches. And you have to make sure that they're sort of walled off and really well-protected. I mean in these first early events like that you know when we look at the NCAA and the false or so ranges from cross country to And Soccer and field hockey and then of course. There's there is football insults. It's a little easier to imagine pulling off cross country than than it is onto to pull off off on but even across country meet the logistics of it are not straightforward and on. You know when you're starting off across country event. You're pretty close to a lot of people at the end. You're pretty close when you're trying to pay someone you know it's a The elbows are flying. And so you have to make sure that done might too and so we are actually getting a very granular levels. Were at the NCAA. We we have these committees that are our staff and members of committees working in conjunction with other. And we're developing basically all of the what if scenarios that we can think of and the other thing is we're building off of the core principles of resocialization document that we put together and were beginning very granular in terms of general guidance. For what needs to happen in a lock of what needs to happen in in the gym. What needs to happen. You know for showers and and you know the whole old idea of just kinda show up in the training room was actually sort of a choice for athletes to hang out. I mean it's going to be by appointment so it's really going to be staggered and I think it'll be easy in the first couple of phases but the tricky part is going to be when you start having contact

"One sport I think if I had a chance of having done something good it that I was a competitive swimmer as a kid so I was a good swimmer and I add up you know. I was actually a runner so I had a couple of important skills there for for traffic on the other side I was doing with Steve. Skating and So it's kind of a dual sport. This was through high school in speedskating. Is what brought me to Calgary. And when I showed up in here in Calgary I was at the Olympic Training Center and I was very fortunate in that. I was coached by Dutch. Dutch coach She's from the Netherlands and had been a very high level athletes. Yourself as a steets gator and I was also had the opportunity to kind of get this Mentorship through a guy named Dr David Smith. Who was our leads? Scientists next sites physiologist that our training center. And so when you ask the question about curation I realize there's lots of criticisms surrounded but I know firsthand That the two bookends. So let's take a look at number one which is just it doesn't like you. You have no strength training and I'm going to me as an athletes train training and Interval work and passively were and you know speedwork an acceleration were none of it matters like you just literally just have fit this whenever and and the whole value proposition that I will be at my best physical performance at the competition of of interest when it counts. That will you that that will occur regardless of whether or not I organize it by just do it. I mean obviously.

"I always say that you're going to be way. Further ahead of you can find simple things that you can actually do consistently rather than trying to achieve things that are complicated and consuming the barriers of complicated and time consuming. We'll get in the way. Keep it simple keep into things that answer the question that you care about and and and do the simple things well I think. That's that's coaching rule. A sports science rule that you know will stand the test of time. It's one of the reasons why I still come back to light. I mean I see what I see. People trying to read create. You know super complicated movements in the weight room trying to achieve this idea of transfer from Jim to the sword. You've got all these crazy things happening. You know. It just doesn't resonate. It's not that doesn't work. I mean who knows? Maybe it does work really well. I just think you need to go back to what Derek Dooley said when he got that. Each skater man. I'm just GonNa Start with one thing. I'm going to see how that works. And then when I have a problem I have one more thing in and that's a very different way of thinking that starts simple in ads things in rather than starting super super noisy and tried to strip stuff out. It's really tough to understand. Things started noisy. That was Dr Matt Jordan. And you're listening to the just fly. Performance podcast thanks for being here with us today a lot of times when it comes to the process of training athletes the process of working to become the best that one can be in a given sport. It's very easy to fall into traps of complexity. Making things more difficult and complicated than they need to be or putting more noise in the system. So it's really hard to tell if what you're doing is really working or not. I've certainly been in this situation myself many a time. And it's that type of situation makes me thrilled to have Dr Matt Jordan as our guests for the show. Matt Jordan is a strengthening edition coach and performance consultant for elite athletes with six Olympic cycles of Experience Matt has consulted with more than thirty Olympic and world championship medalists and provides expertise to high performance organizations such as the NHL The NBA the NFL in the military maddest. Curly the Director of Sports Science at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary and he also leads the Sports Science Sports Medicine Program for Alpine Canada on the show today Matt is going to be talking about a few things in regards to good training practices but some elements that were specifically going to get into our Matt's thoughts on Asian Planning and Trading Organization. He's GonNa get into ideas on reducing the noise in high performance system where we have multiple cooks in the soup so to speak so where you have a sports performance coach. A team sport coach a strength coach. Matt is also going to talk about vertical. Jump profiling how it fits into the bigger picture of an athletes sport and how it's measured performance fatigue. Ability is different then. The performance metrics and sport overall. This is an awesome show by a guy who is practical results data driven and has tons of experience working with lots of great athletes and coaching systems. I'm excited to get this episode rolling. So let's get onto episode two. Oh Two with Dr Matt Jordan Matt. Welcome to the show. Thanks for being here today. I appreciate it. It's.

"Tell me who you would replace with. Who and why because what people are just picking best players. I'm picking a cohesive unit. I need bigger receiver. Reliable hands one on one nightmare. Mike Thomas I need a really fast smooth re route runner that could be a deep threat but also run intermediate rats San Antonio homes. I need a reliable really intelligent. Almost wes welker Ish Anthony Gonzalez. I need a reliable guy in the slot. That has ridiculous. Ball Skills Caja Hill. Now I need a guy that's going to be smartest Shit Block. Well take the top off. Oh and by the way. Be Be an all rookie team. Receiver Terry Corn. That's my five that I put on the field so build your unit. Don't just pick the five. You think are best that people put Curtis Samuel on their love. Curtis to death. He didn't have the ball skills of some of these other guys and and and and I love him but I don't know that he's GonNa come down with that play. I'm not put him on the field. I'll tell you another another guy that I would Paris. I would've put on their bullpen. And Noah Brown would be another one I put on there. I'm not trying to knock. Michael Jenkins are some of the older receivers. Obviously I don't know them as well. I don't care I'm going with those five so hit me up on twitter. If you agree disagree. GimMe your feedback. But here's my next challenge for you right and I'M GONNA put it out on twitter right. After I put this show out for Patriot subscribers It is now the other side all right. It's third and seven last play fourth and seven right last. Play the game. It's the Penn State when Joey Bosa drove the running back into Into the QUARTERBACK RIGHT. It is the last play of the game. It's four hundred seven you know they're gonNA throw the ball. Here's the caveat you're you are able to put together a d line rush package that is so dominant you're not gonNA blitz. So don't tell me you're going to send six or five or you need to get an extra guy. No no you get four pass rushers and you're gonNA twist them. You're going to get matchups. You're going to try to get them home on the quarterback right. You're trying to end the game with four so that you can play coverage what we in two thousand sixteen all the time really in twenty fifteen sixty the whole time Larry. Johnson's been it'll how state I want to know. What four defensive Lineman or pass rush specialist for your team not just you know what? Whoever your favorite team is who were your pass rushers your trotting on the field. Mine was in the first. Three are no brainers for Ohio state. You look two thousand until now. The first three are absolute no brainers. Joey Bosa Nick. Bosa chase young three two of the best defensive ends in the NFL was going to be the number two overall pick and probably the most impactful football player in the country in this past football season. So those were my first three already. Probably GONNA sack. Those three are outrageous. That got to the fourth spot. And who are you going to pick for the four spot now? I'm trying to create a group right. I mean you have to bigger really three big defensive ends. I mean all different in their own ways. Joe is a little taller a little thicker than Nick Nixon. Little smaller little quicker chase. Young's kind of a hybrid of both of them probably a little more quick twitch than either of them but not quite as powerful as either so. Now I'm thinking all right. Who Do I WANNA get? And I'm I'm GonNa tell you who I I'm I didn't pick my. I always Ryan Shazier not entirely fair. Don't WanNA cheat the game. He's a linebacker though. He probably would be in there to pass rush on third down to win the game. I discarded him because he's technically a linebacker so Ryan shazier definitely a good pick my Another one I went to was maybe an older guy that I didn't know as well like a cam hayward but he's doesn't exactly he's not exactly dynamic pass rusher. He's a great defensive linemen that can pass rush but I wouldn't say he's been one of the most four dominant one of the top four pass rushers in Ohio state history since two thousand so and I looked at a number of other guys dream. Aunt Joan's who I think is a phenomenal interior alignment I mean. What is he a second third round? Pick I don't even remember but he was a phenomenal pass rusher. It'd be hard to not put them in there. But the guy I went with is Johnny Simon Big Ten defensive player of the year. But here's why I took him Jon. Steinman was not a freak of nature as far as explosion as far as power. And not that. He didn't have those things he's not like some Rudy Ruediger who try hard and did well. This is this is a guy that had had ability. But his greatest trait the thing he was best at was being relentless. And if you have a young athlete or not even young any athlete. Listen to listen to that. This was a big time. Still playing the fill his greatest trait. Why was he a great pass? Rusher everyone would say. Because he's relentless we even brought it up on the show with a couple of guests. Who WOULD YOU NOT? WanNa fight a of John Simon why because he relentless he would never stop. There's no way I wouldn't if I have both boasts chase young and then you give me John. Simon that is going to relentlessly. Go after the quarterback. It's game over John. Simmons relentlessness was his greatest straight. So that's a four. I went with challenge. You who were your four that you would right now. Put On Your D. Line to go after the quarterback tweet him out. I'm going to put it out on twitter here in a in a minute once. The show's over curious to see not only Ohio state fans. But everyone's because here's the next step of this I'm through and I'm reading. Most of them are trying to read all of them but the results have been astounding and next episode. I want to talk about the best since two thousand in each of these categories across the board. Like who's better Ohio states? All Tooth all quarantined team or Alabama's all Corentin team on offense and then we'll get into some some run game get all that but Just really curious to see your input. Those remind that's my all. Pass rush all Corentin pass rush team and my all empty offense for Ohio State football. I might have to do Florida in my time. Or maybe since two thousand I just don't know the history and what's really. I don't know what's going on since I left as well but I'll look into it and put together my team but I love the feedback. I love see what you guys are doing. Hope everyone staying in there hanging in there stander a little bit shorter episode but I wanted to put it out so thank you for tuning. Thank you for listening. Please check us out on Patriot. Our new website. It'll be up in the next week. We're going to also check out our zone. Six training zone six training on twitter on instagram. And that hasn't been set up yet but I think we have the name to it and then a website coming soon so check it out check out our new patriots. Subscription level and also are locked up episodes coming out today for Patriots subscribers. So check it out. Appreciate you tuning in appreciate you listening. Hope you enjoyed it. Hope you're entertained and as always if you weren't if you didn't if you don't like what the Fuck I say. Go Fuck Yourself.

"Can you train it and improve it? And that's that's where I'm going with this. I want to know if I I know I can improve it. I know you can improve it because it's not just occupy it's not just your is it has to do with hand. Confidence Manual dominance. And that's that's what I'm going to explore through this zone six platform and I'm really excited about it but it was wild. I mean you're sitting there Jamaal. I can't receivers that. They had actually couldn't tell which receivers they work. Only there is but all they have all their receivers that I mean. This guy could tell you joe borough was he right. Eye Dominant left is dominant. He could tell you everything about him. What was the most comfortable? Thrown was left thrown to his right. He he knew everything about every player and then he blew my mind because he says that at order on is in love with it he says looked at him and said you made me a better coach today. Because then they studied their d. Lineman what dominant were was each dilemma. Because if I'm left eye dominant and I landed on the right side of the center. I'm going to see the ball better out of my peripheral. Took it off the ball and pass rush and if I'm right dominant island up on the left vice versa. Right the better vision. You have on what you're trying to do the more successful you'll be simple as that. It blew me away. Just change the my world and it also told me. Lsu is light years ahead of every other program in sports science because of this guy he is. I mean unbelievable ridiculous so I had to share that with you. Wanted to talk about it just for a brief minute. And Kinda tell you where. Where we're we're trending and where I'm headed with my athlete development and the project I have gone on with Greg is going to be awesome. Ocular dominance project really excited about it so I wanted to share with. You wanted to tell you about zone. Six check it out on twitter at zone six training. The website will be up in the next week or two on Patriots. Like I mentioned if you're interested in checking out what all we're planning to do there so we'll be right back after a break from one of our sponsors and talk about some some corentin teams. I'm calling on the Corentin team if you had one quarterback five wide to win the game from favorite team. Who is it? I'M GONNA give you mine for the Buckeyes two thousand and on you give me yours on social media and I got another one for you to be right back after this with the free agency period done and no live sports on TV..

Create some shit on the wall and see what sticks with you what I see happening everywhere where we had a man on forty when my time on earth is gone and my activities here are Fan. I once they bury the upside down in critics been kissed by welcome to episode. Ninety two minutes sports. I am Zach Smith. Your host really excited to have another conversation. I I want to say I appreciate all the listeners. For a number of reasons one. I appreciate you guys embracing the show this platform what I have to say. In general and the feedback on social media has been awesome. But here's here's another reason. I appreciate it. You guys are very loyal and so I put a show that I that I'm passionate about didn't know how it'd be received didn't know how much you guys would like it. It's coaching PhD We're GONNA talk about ocular dominance in my mind. I'm like that might be over people's heads not because you're not intelligent enough but just that's very very very indepth detail about coaching football. I didn't know if you guys like it. First of all the feedback was ridiculous. So I'm definitely going to trend in that direction in future episodes. That's why I'm doing it again in this episode. But I also appreciate it because I was contacted by several sports optometrist. Several people in that field. That the PODCAST. That show got passed to them. They listen to it and they reached out and so I've spent the last week and a half on conference calls and having educational conversations with some of the best in the sports optometry industry and I have really refined my knowledge on the topic. And it's made me realize how much I wanNA research athlete development and so I've been in the process of creating an athlete development platform. Braxton Miller and I talked about it we have a number of. I have huge plans for it. He he wants to be heavily involved. I think because he knows how much I helped him as a receiver in a short whatever three months what I was able to teach him and get him to functionally. Do I know he has a lot of respect for it so anyways not to I guess? Give testimony on myself. But I'm really interested in it so I've started on twitter right now. There's no website yet. Shell website up for it but zone six training. It's going to be kicking off here in the next couple of weeks. I've got all my training tools ordered. I've got everything I need to start. Training athletes mainly for research. Not mainly re wanted. Here's why I want to do it for research purposes. I want to be able to collect data and study the craft of receiver play of Corner. Play of running back play. I want to study it. Like coach doesn't have time to do a Ryan Day told me one time when he left college football the NFL. I was like why did you? Why did you make that jump like? He's a college football coach now. He's brilliant he coach in the NFL. But I know how much he loves interacting with kids as opposed to the business aspect of the NFL. I said why did you do it? He said you know why I wanted to take four years. No recruiting no nothing and just study. Spent all the time in the day studying quarterback play and I was like damn. That's awesome. I've never been. I'd never got to do that as a coach. You're too busy. You could study at here and there but really dive in and study the craft and come up with a new perspective. Everything everything coaches do right now is learned from someone. My question is. How do you advance and enhance if you do that? And so that's why I'm diving into this side of the sports world. I WanNa get into the science behind the skill of each position and I want to improve. Coaching improved teaching. I want to get it out there from all levels so greg fry and I have a huge study. Going on. With ocular dominance and part. I pair that with for receiver play right receiving a football receiving a football's really about two things. Right one is your is your oculus. How locating the football with distractions arms in the air. And how you how will you find and track a football and then how disciplined you are with your pupil? Focus Right. So that's the whole conversation about how your eyes go into eye hand coordination. The other part of it is manual dominance. What that means is and I've talked about it before is and I've talked about our deep balls and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go even further with it. It's critical to know which hand or receiver is most comfortable with on a deep ball. Right I talked about it because one of one of the hands stops the ball in your confidence is. Let's say a one hundred with your right hand. It's at a sixty with your left hand. So now the drill work that I've done over the last five years is all about increasing the confidence in your non dominant hand. Write your manual dominance increasing that confidence. So that when you're on the left you don't drop zero. You don't go over ten like Chris. Alavi did right. You develop that left hand to stop the ball. The other part of it obviously is is your dominant eye. So that's just one part of the manual dominance. The other part of it is if you're running a crossing route so I have three different catches that are in my mind that I break it down. One is what I call a head on collision. You run a curl you run. Stop a hitch. Something in your chest is coming back towards the quarterback where now you can frame the ball with that perfect diamond in front of your the front of your body. That's one catch right. The next catch is what? I call perpendicular intersection. That is you're running a dig route. A slant route anything where you're moving from one side line towards the other and the ball comes now you have to figure out which hand is on top. That's also very important. Because receivers have a comfort level with one of their hands on top and the other on the bottom and you have to train the other setup scenario so if you are a right hand on top most comfortable right or right then you have to train when your left hand on top and you have to increase your confidence in that hand position right. So that's that's the one that I haven't really those two. I haven't talked about much in. The last one is what I call a parallel intersection. Meaning you and the quarterback are facing the same way and when he throws the ball you're going to have to either track it or high point. Those are your two options on like a deep ball. Go route sometimes a post corner those those routes going away from the quarterback so those are the three catch angles. I break down when I go through it so anyways. That's what I'm studying right now. Manual dominance ocular dominance and. I'm also I'm studying a lot of things but I'm going to develop this into a whole platform. I've even opened a patriot. Subscription level for its zone six training. Forget all the podcast episodes early episodes. Those are still there but this is going to be specifically for this conversation. We're GONNA have clinics. We're GONNA HAVE TIP SHEETS. Conversations videos zooms e clinics. Whatever you WANNA call going to do all kinds of stuff because I want to explore this side of it with people that are passionate about it. So if you'd like to be a part sign up it's going to help fund the research that we're going to do so it's basically it's also go fund me for improving coaching so at checkout patriotic dot com forward slash menace to sports. Check out the zone six tier. I've already put up. My first article. Never Been Red Before. It's exclusive to you for now at least and we're going to really expand in that side of this menace the sports because it's a side that. I'm very passionate about but back to what happened so we ended up getting on the phone to different big time we had I had. I've had four conversations in the last week and a half about ocular dominance and two of them were with people that I was blown away by one is a sports optometrist. Sports optometrist's that has worked with several pro athletes pro teams and he was phenomenal. I E teaching me and Greg Fry about ocular dominance on a deeper level from a medical perspective and it was awesome. We're GONNA continue conversations with him and I'll go into more detail on that later but the other conversation we had was with a guy named Jack Marucci. I want you to look them. Up Is Google and if you're part of the zone six Patriot on whatever level. You can listen to it. You can read about what who he is and what he does Jack Marucci. He's the head athletic trainer at Lsu. On I it was supposed to be an hour conference call or an hour. Whatever you WANNA call it and it lasted two and a half hours. This guy is ridiculous. I mean brilliant. He is talking about every different position every different sport. And here's how here's how brilliant. This guy is so. His son is a great baseball player daughter's softball player. Real Big Baseball Guy Right. He talks a number of major league baseball players right now. He threw out some names. Like I mean Adrian Beltran Albert Pool Holes like some of these names and I'm like Holy Shit like he's I talked to Pete rose last week. He's always working the sports science world right and so he. This is probably eighteen years ago. He decides that the baseball bats that the baseball players are using are kind of just not not the best. So what does he do? He goes out back and starts in the woodshed and starts making his own wooden baseball bats for those of you. That have kids. That play travel baseball. If you're not familiar with Marucci bats let me tell you I just bought a four hundred dollar bat for my son in his travel team and every kid on every team has these MARUCCI bats. So this guy. He's in. He's in charge of sports performance at Lsu national champions. He created a bat company that he just sold a couple of weeks ago. For millions of dollars Marucci bets. Look it up. It's unbelievable but anyways this guy is crazy impressive so there there is even article about it at Lsu. They have these glasses that they put on the receivers this last spring and summer leading up to the National Championship. Here and all they're doing is studying. These glasses are crazy so they have a camera on the front that shows the field then two cameras on the inside of the glasses that shoot right at the pupils and these glasses they could the data they can show Graphs Antica. Show the live footage of the pupils. Like when they dilate when they don't when they when they shrink exactly where the pupils are pointed the whole time that they're running a route or as the ball approaches. It was the most unbelievable thing I've ever seen all about. Ocular dominance pupil dilation pupil focus. It was crazy so the biggest thing that I that I took away from it was a at the stage. They're at their opinion. Ocular dominance and and how your vision works when it comes to receiving a football is really critical for athletes selection right. And what am I what I mean by that? Is You study if you just put together? The data of every player on every route from every side of the field. You'll find trends like Paris Campbell's really good at corner routes when he's breaking to his left and so his point.
"sports science" Discussed on Menace 2 Society Podcast
"Thirty first The end of the initial corentin month. Hope everyone's hanging in there. I'm GonNa tell you what I know you are feeling too. This is this is crazy just sanity. I mean what's going on with the country. What's going on with them? You just feel awful for people that are getting sick. This thing sounds nasty but I got into it with a couple. Got into it but people were critical of me on twitter. Because I retweeted some I guess some tweets about how this the media has blown out of proportion. They're using fear tactics to paint the public. And I want to just put this out there and make it clear it's an. I am not downplaying the severity of this covert nineteen the corona virus. The Wuhan Virus Whatever's whatever's not racist. That's what I'm going to call it. What a covert nineteen. I'm not trying to downplay the severity of it. My simple question in what my stance has always been is why now why this disease why now. That's the only thing that doesn't make sense to me when you look at the statistics. This is very dangerous. It's very real. We should be doing what we're doing. We should be quarantining. We should be. What does it go social distancing? We should be self isolating. We should be doing those things. I agree with everything that's going on. My only question is why. Now there's been other pandemic diseases that have hit through. H One n one bird-flu all these pandemics and for some reason. We didn't do shit about him and now now because the media said so. We're going to do something with corona virus. I don't I don't get it. I don't understand. I'm not near smart enough to understand the economic impact and what that will mean for lives and deaths in the future. So I'm not even going to comment on the basically ECON economic shutdown. I don't know I don't. I don't have an opinion really. I do think that this is very dangerous. It's very real and I agree with quarantining. Xyz Yada Yada. What I don't agree with is the media dictating that we do it. And that's what happened. The media put pressure on politicians and people freaked out and so they had to act. And that's just the reality of it because there have been several diseases in the last twenty years. That are as bad or worse than this disease so I had to get that ran out but I want everyone to know my stance on it. I think this is very serious. I don't think this is some created made up disease or or that they're blowing it out of proportion. I just WanNa know why now why this disease so anyways really excited about today's show. We're going to talk going to Kinda update you on the topic that Greg Fry on last week to talk about ocular dominance at something that I've been working on for about a month. Not just that that topic Greg and I've been working on and I think it's phenomenal and I'M GONNA UPDATE. You had some big time. Conference calls with some very very important and brilliant people that. I want to share with you and also talk about kind of a new door. That is that. I'm opening and starting to explore because I think it's going to be awesome and it's been a passionate mind for fifteen years is why I coach one of the big reasons. I coach football so excited to have that conversation just about the football coaching. Hd is what I call it that that next level conversation about coaching athletes not just football players not just receivers but athletes in general so excited about that. Also going to talk a little bit about the twitter. I guess scenario we put out there. Because I think it's great. It's fun conversation while we're all stuck inside just bored out of our minds going. Stir crazy my question that I posed and I'm GonNa have another question later. This show. I might tweet it out right when I put this show out is If your favorite team you get one quarterback you're five wide empty to win the game who are wide. And WHO's your quarterback? I'M GONNA give you mine. Talk about some of the feedback on twitter enough about preview. Let's.
NFL: Two head coaching hires in 10 minutes
"The draft before the combine. We still have several weeks. NFL Action to go. We have some new coaches join. Join the NFL. As recently as this afternoon and joining me to talk about that and the playoff games is our friend with the Atlantic Lindsay Jones Lindsay. How are you? I'm good oh how are you. I'm good I thought this was going to be kind of a quiet day in the NFL landscape and then suddenly to head. Coaching hires in the matter of ten minutes. This morning Matt rule going to the panthers. Joe Judge going to the giants after Mike McCarthy was named cowboys coach earlier this week. So let's start with today's news. Let's start with Matt rule who gets a seven year deal. What sixty seventy million dollars? A lot of money. Samat rule to leave Baylor and come work for the Carolina Panthers. Yeah I mean it sounded like one of those Offers you can't refuse type of situation where I think he's GonNa have a lot of power he's also got a lot of money and A lot of years to do To do what the panthers to do. It's not quite a Jon. GRUDEN ten years one hundred million dollar type of deal but David Tepper is showing that he is not afraid to spend a lot of money to invest very heavily in his head coach and head coach You know when everything else that they're doing I mean they're building a brand new practice facility. They're building the indoor facility. I mean they're spending a lot of money Darren Charlotte and you know I. It was interesting that there was kind of story that also came out. The rule wanted to kind of bring that offer back to the giants Because he was going to interview with the giants as well but The giants said okay. We're going to hire JOE judge instead of paying Instead of hiring not rule it six years seventy million dollars or whatever it is so Really really interesting. Move there Bell what are you. What was your initial? Take on it. I guess and then I'll I'll go with yours it. I think it's interesting in that. I'm not gonNA pretend that I am someone who has watched every Baylor game this year. I've watched a little bit and I've read up a Matt Rule Essay coaching candidate. Now for the past two years of course rule was very very nearly the jets head coach last year before jazz blocked him hiring his own offensive coordinator which point he stepped out of that process and they hired Adam Gates move. That has worked out brilliantly for the jets of course in the afterward with that rule. I think there are certainly elements of a a run first attack. I think he is not someone who is seen as a a progressive offensive minded. They've run EARNHARDT Peos this year. He has seen that as sort of a you know. I can't deal with the devil to run as much of the rushing game as he wants to and I think that's very interesting given what we have. In Carolina we have Christian McCaffrey who's entrenched is the best running back in football at the moment. We Have Cam Newton who I think you know certainly seems like this offer. This higher would probably be good for him in a way back for him in a way. Oh you know good in that. The run first attack does seem to favor can if he can be a player who does impact game with his leg. Still which we don't know coming back from injury but it's pretty clear that you know if Matt rule wants to move on from Cam Newton. He's going to have plenty of time to move on and higher higher or or or or sign up backup quarterback or assigned a young quarterback or draft a quarterback and give that guy a time to develop so I kind of feel of two minds. It's for this when it comes to the biggest decision for the second the second biggest decision the panthers have to make this office and I don't know how you feel about do you do. What does this mean for you for Cam Newton? Yeah I I think the first thing is just how healthy is he gonNA be. What's his time? Line going to be like their That's the thing that just is over everything and has been over everything for the panthers for going on two years now I still think he's GonNa be back and and I've been I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few few days I've been writing about brees and Brady and thinking about all of the potential quarterback moves that we're gonNA see the offseason and well this time of year. It's really fun fun to speculate about. All the potential moves and this year is more interesting than any quarterback off season that I can remember and maybe ever certainly certainly as long as my nfl institutional memory is But ultimately moving on from a quarterback and guy who's taking you to a super bowl who's won an MVP Without some sort of really solid plan in place is it's a really hard at it. It's so rare that it happens so ultimately I think he ends up being back. I think he's there's so many things that you can do with him if he's going to be healthy but that if he's going to be healthy is just the biggest question that's been out there and We're not going to know that for a couple abundance I guess the good news is that they don't have to make that move or decision on Cam Newton. Today I mean they they really can can wait a couple of months but ultimately. I think that there are better team with him. And the options outside of him are just not that great. I mean. There's some intriguing names out there but I just think I don't think you're GonNa do better than Cam. Newton Can A new. There's even seventy five percent of the quarterback that he was in two thousand fifteen when he was at his peak. Yeah or even the guy who was playing well in the first half of two thousand eighteen. I think that can traffic is still really good There's a definitely interesting sort of dichotomy with that rule or I guess not a paradox. In that he is a very conservative. Very first coach. But we've we've seen in the report effortless. Hire one of the reasons that the panthers were able to Land Matt run into the panthers was because they're making a huge investment in sports science. You mentioned the practice facility being built there. I mean it seems like it's a you know. This is the the beginning of a major infrastructure shift for the panthers to being an organization that they wanNA emulate the steelers and they wanna be simultaneously Eh analytics friendly at the same time so I think it was going to be a really interesting sort of narrow path to hit their where they are a run for his team which is typically considered to be sort of a antiquated or old school notion but making it work and so I think in the long run. They might end up being more similar to the Ravens. Who seemed to embody all those things right now in the steelers? Yeah I mean that's absolutely the franchise right now that you want to emulate if you look at WHO's doing it the best right now from both play on the field but also what they're doing inside their building and the the mindset that they have with the type of people that they hire The way that they make all their decision I think it's the Ravens and I guess that comes from the steelers family and that's so so that's what he's familiar with. But I think the other thing that we we didn't talk about was not rule that we just really have to mention. Is that while we can talk about schematics. And look at his Ex's knows and yes he's run I but you know what college offenses he bringing those sorts of things. I think the biggest reason that he was this really hot. NFL Coaching candidate over the last two years. This is his reputation. That's kind of a program builder and The work that he did at temple the way that he really kind of overhauled Baylor over the last two the three years when they were really a disaster The the way he interacts with players You know he brought his father and his former pastor and coach and you know I just think that Dad's what made him so attractive in addition to obviously like the the the skills that he has. It's an actual you know coach but You know I think we get so caught happen. Like what exactly is this. Guy's offense going to look like or what exactly is this guy's defense gonNa look like when really what owners and management are looking at is. What's this Guy's vision? How is he going to interact after everything everybody in the building? How does he relate to players What is his vision? All those sorts of things not really why they came out rule You know a bunkers you you know seventy million dollar contract Jack. Think that's very fair and I think that's really what they're bringing matt rule to do. I mean this is a guy who they think is going to overhaul everything about the panthers. The culture is going to change not that rhinovirus culture was bad. Obviously it worked for a long time but I think you know this is going to be a eighteen. An organization top to bottom built in in the vision of Matt Rule on the other side of things You think about the hiring. The giants made today in Joe Judge who granted. I think there's been that those sort of initial tweets coming out the wide receivers coach. He's really special teams coach. He is not good for one year. He has been the Patriot special teams coach for a long time. He has worked under Bill Bell. Check US worked under Nick Sabin. Those are pretty successful people to work underneath and yet it sort of seems like not. Maybe this is wrong to say but it seems like this higher is out of nowhere. Is that fair to say a little bit. I mean he was.

"sports science" Discussed on Just Fly Performance Podcast
"Jake is a sports performance practitioner and researcher hailing from Boston Massachusetts Lascaux do jake it was episode one or nine it was incredible. Jake talked talked at length on how he was integrating cutting edge exercises and technology into a training model for track and field athletes particularly sprinters and highlights of that was his utilization utilization of Alex's Tara's work his force plate analysis is and his just as total system was really this incredible and cutting edge synthesis that was this awesome blend of Sports Science and coaching so if you haven't listened to episode one of nine I definitely would <hes> maybe not before he listed this at some point definitely make a point to check that one out so I was excited to have jake back on the show. Jake has spent the past year working as the senior sports scientists for vowed performance. He's traveled the world he's visit elite sprint sporting clients and has gotten a unique insight into the global best practices so he's been a little bit of a journeyman since you last heard from him when he was at Florida state as a strength coach for track and field he's gotten to see the practices of a lot of sporting <hes> sporting organizations which you heard a little bit in the teaser and that has been a a big impact on his thought process. Jake's knowledge and abilities are very impressive blend of both understanding science data trends will also having that creative of an integrative coaching mind and those are the conversations that I absolutely love to have I like to have them too because I feel like my mind leans more towards the coaching and intuition inside and sometimes they get away from the science and data backside. I like how Jake mentions <hes> being intellectually lazy in towards the back half of this show <hes> so I just enjoyed talking with people who make me better Jacobs incredibly insightful on the show today he's GonNa Talk About International Differences in Sports Science Utilization Allies Ation and by the way if you're not like an organizational coach you're not in like a high performance model or you're working with other people in the department <hes> You may want to skip to about the thirty minute marker so in the show where we start to get into more of the Hamstring Injury Prevention <hes> speed development aspect and then we're going to get into other things <hes> which are by the way we'll so we'll get into hamstring development what you heard about the teaser Nordic hamstrings everything to do with strengthen hamstring injury prevention. This is a really cool episode two in the follow up or the wake of the J._V. Marine episode <hes> Jake is GonNa talk about his evolving thoughts on the work of France Boston Waterberg training always controversial France Bosch work so I I was really excited and intrigued to hear Jake's take on it. <hes> Jake last time went into a lot of detail enforce plates. He's GonNa talk about a little. He's GonNa talk a little more. We're on that especially in the realm of concentrate rate of force development which is related to really good things that happen in athleticism. Finally he's GonNa give take on. What's coming up for him this next year things are he's thinks he's thinking about questions on topics? This is a cool commonsense episode guy who is who is in the sport science and data but also intuitive intuitive coach who really blends it all. I always enjoy talking to Jake Schuster. Let's get out of the episode you what's what's like your daily monitoring. How do you monitor Jake Schuster her like whoop band or what do you? What do you got going on? There man awesome first question <hes>. I wear a ban I I I for the <unk> around December was funny. I was flying in from Europe. If Europe to Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in Vegas <hes> so that classic three days to figure out your sleep schedule that it asks W was underestimation but once it got a hold of that <hes> I found it really interesting for feedback I actually she caught on to that at Florida state where we had five teams using it and all the made like national quarterfinals veteran the two teams that won a national championship Moss two years were both <hes> have users of the product <unk>. I think it it's not about not about even reliability or accuracy of some of its metrics because it certainly limited has as you know as its flaws but it's about feedback behavior change which I would I would reflect that is a lot of the value of force by phone testing when you can see kind of where a you're at and where that is relative to your norm whether that's your normal your normal Monday or your normal match day plus one or whatever <hes> that that informs is training and I think I think this responsive information is is more valuable than predictive information so where we say yet you know this is how much Iran Iran and that means day risk is X._y._Z. amount sure about that. I think saying well you know you're resting heart. Rate in your sleep is normally sixty last night. It was seventy okay. Let's figure out why that happened in. Let's see how good to go you today. Yeah I my my personal like this is sad like my own personal monitoring's oftentimes sometimes before work. I'll do the five second tap test on the keyboard and like Oh man. I got a lot less tap that sometimes some days. I'm always wondering like man I should at least like forty one for forty two why only get forty and then it's like 'cause my one year old was up last night. Am I stressed out with like it'd be nice to have a little bit more like like information as to why is that. Does that. Give you some those like just to give you some different like areas of stress stress loads in that type of thing. I'm Jim Feedback Canarias or <hes> yeah like what are the areas of of stress that you're looking. I think that's what's kind of fun about getting feedback is is you. You have to ask those questions and that's why that's why like you know athletes doing counter movement jobs every day possible or looking at you know H._r.. V. In your sleep and things like that because you can sail. I wonder okay if anything different happened last night <hes> or do we train extra hard yesterday or is there some existential stress going on. We can try and answer those questions and you also get that nice end of one right because I look again. I think G._P._S. is a wonderful tool. We should try and answer the question question. What did the athletes do? Or how much did they do or how how much worse they do relative to their norm <hes> you know but I I vividly remember my first trip Austrailia seeing N._F._l.. Teams and just being blown away at their operations now bought and everyone was and how coach embraced you know different training load instructions really <hes> but then being shown these amazing spreadsheets in them saying well for example on you know mess demise to we want everyone to get say two two hundred fifty meters of zone six running. I'm making numbers but that half the team benefits from three hundred about half the team needs you know one fifty. What's the point of doing this then I we need to look at individual responses and we shouldn't again? We really should answer the question of what the athlete do but maybe how do they respond or what's their status is more valuable question question answering the more feasible question answer so it's actually answer your question. I think we get to ask those those questions. In terms of feedback we get to explore those questions with individual athletes which is what we do whether we have football roster of eighty people <hes> basketball roster fourteen. I think we're responsible us in any support staff role to address that in two to chase that yeah that that end of one puzzle is that the puzzle I was just naturally WanNa go force like a- and figuring out that puzzle from that point inside out really I was GonNa say to you've been traveling an awful lot last year jake. Do you feel like some what are the differences like like like culturally in terms of like like sports like data and monitoring. You're seeing a lot of differences like in from like one culture one country to another and who's really like on what side of that equation while absolutely and I think it would be lazy and probably even a bit archaic to say the typical while America's still ahead in strength conditioning and Australia's still hadn't sports signs though there's definitely shades of truth there I think we we see he still greater compliance Down Under with the sport coaching staff understanding load monitoring needing to hand over the reins on a lot a lot of that but we do see some really exciting stuff happening in North America right now I'm probably because of budget and what that allows in terms of exploration and <hes> you know I know awesome N._B._A.. Teams really going to great lengths to quantify their warm up because that's one of the few things that they do every single day no matter what I'm and so can we can. We quantify no you're right. What's their normal? You know a number of markers of this show in that warm up and then if they show variants was protocol <hes> the other thing that I see some teams doing really well is is building out kind of if then scenarios so like you said we'll have all sorts of different responses all sorts of different patterns but we can say okay if someone's wellness markers are off than this is the next thing that we look and we all agree that this is the next thing we look at and if that's off then and this is the person who makes a decision or conversation the player or whatnot <hes> and so I think around the world that would be a commonality is that all teams have that really nicely done now and in terms of successful teams have injuries that they have their protocols down they have their checks and balances down <hes> differences yeah yeah I'd say differences across sport are larger than differences across culture this point twitter his cauldron that I've really stayed away from recently the the great ideas spread quickly and that's the beauty of the Internet so I think I think <hes> habits the different sports are more more profound than once across across different cultures. Yeah it's interesting what what sports do you feel like an I mean I don't in Australia's obviously sports. That aren't as familiar in the states or who what's like what sports the sports do you think are really doing that symbiosis between sports science and the sports staff just absolutely the best <hes> <hes> all given annoying not answer that it's really individual teams that I could say N._B._a. n._F._l.. N._H._l.. Actually baseball four major leagues in America there are few teams doing some really amazing stuff and with some really airtime protocols in crate training and monitoring cultures and then there's some teams that aren't are not S. great in those leagues. You know it would be easy to say that the N._F._l.. obsess some really cool operations happening right now and that's because it's so stats driven yeah. Oh yeah like I think <hes> the mole moneyball thing and it's probably more easy to apply that that mode and have ever like everyone on it and so oh that's cool man I mean that's it's not an area. That's like necessarily my forte but I like learning about. I like learning about how things come together. In that regard I like Anna ones and the outcome and and you mentioned <hes> like like almost like a triage system rightly so like looking at different <unk> aspects of an athlete like their wellness questionnaire the force plate like so if you had like a list of things that you're gonna go down like okay. Here's an athlete and their readiness for practice are playing <hes>. Do you have like a list of importance that you go down the line that tells me okay. Here's the first red flag okay now. Here's the second here's the third or anything like that if five by design setup regardless of sport you're saying yeah regardless of sport. What's I I yeah I just threw a curveball? Sorry nuts Raewyn. I mean people love to tweet this out but the but the the best in first question is to talk to the athlete and I think that's so important is just so so so important and someone. It doesn't matter if it's the intern that they're buddy buddy with if it's the medical staff with the nutritionist is the strength coach but someone has to talk athlete we will like when they walk in the building every morning and see how they're doing and then I think decisions has to be made off that if you don't do force play testing every day that's fine but if an athlete kind of looks like crap and they walked in the door you should maybe throw them on a force plate and see if they're okay if any asymmetries show off age and that might not be fun or easy but probably be the responsible thing to do. <hes> I think some kind of neuromuscular assessment like a counter moveon jump <hes> would be my next Goto and then if you can look at some kind of internal measures that's helpful. I do like resting heart rate <hes> <hes> whether it's in the final sleep phase or waking or however else I liked that Cooman I need to do with myself figure out my problems scary though because then it did hold you accountable man like I mean I found what we were talking about. The end of one of my favorite example was everyone's probably get a different threshold for this but I find <hes> a a second glass of wine just spikes my my resting heart rate in my sleep <hes> and crashes my H._R.. V. That one glass of wine you can't tell the difference <hes> on the markers in the.

"Take performance enhancing drugs but his resting heart rate. Like twenty-seven beats a minute and these top cyclists. You know they're so low the resting heart rates like a monk. Yeah yeah basically. I easily but if you cheat and then you've blood thickens and your heart goes so slow at night. Be no people. Just die in the night so they up to move around so i think there's i think there's an argument that does all these legal performance enhancing gains. Could that almost naturally lead to lead illegal performance. Enhancing yeah i mean just like you know in my head when i was reading specifically when you talk about that that pill yeah yeah you know because in my head i know tech nanotechnology is coming. That's like part of the future. No doubt about it like it's coming. We can't stop it. I just wonder like you know as a guy can a one team for example man city. You know we're gonna get an fa cup in two thousand and twenty four against bristol rovers and men city players all before the game injustice nanno pill and it goes into your body it releases more oxygen a couple extra bits of like just oxygen but different nutrients you know. Oh it's gonna make your blood flow better. And you know it's going to naturally give you some injections of caffeine and and all of a sudden and all those things are technically illegal and then all of a sudden one team is just just got such an unfair advantage and i and i wonder yeah i don't know i mean i guess there's not really a question but like it when i was reading that that's all i could think yes. I think that's a really really good point. And i mean to me. You know anti-doping agency of just got such a thankless task. I mean it's a as know. The lines can be blurred slightly. I think between some of what might be illegal and what's legal. I mean caffeine was off the the ban list. And then i think for short while it was on and then taken off again because well you know publicly. It was like well caffeine's everywhere. I can't have a coffee before the match. Like a shot of espresso. Exactly i mean they said it was for that i did hear that my being because there was a sponsorship with some famous caffeine every company probably levada or something but i think that's i think that's a very good point and it's yeah i guess it's worrying stands now. It's it's just so hard to monitor so of illegal goings-on and i've done some cycling just written a piece for this magazine called pro cycling which is really looking at the biological passport.

"No one wants to pay cut. You know less games means usually less money. I do wanna bring up one thing you know. We're talking about this widening gap than some of advantages that these bigger clubs have over the smaller clubs. And it's not really a level playing field you know even besides the money factor like literally just off the field and turn of the training and you know we talked about the nutrition and all these advantages you know for a long time. It was just considered if you wanted a leg up and you were the illegal way to do. It was to take performance enhancing drugs. You talk if you bring up something in the book this nanno pill that i think Knots is using in france. That essentially has all these sensors that can help you. Like regulate kind of your. I think your body measure temperature but like you know at what point is is it essentially technologically cheating nam versus. I mean because we still have this old concept of performance enhancing drugs. You take steroids but in actuality like some guy in league one was taking steroids. you know. it's not maybe any different than the guy at manchester city who gets have hyperbaric chamber that gets to have all of this nutrition that gets to have the sleeping pods. Who gets to have you know high altitude or like cryotherapy or all of these advantages. And i just wonder you know. Do we have an out. Dated idea of what performance enhancing drugs are commits enhancing on blank as a very good question. I mean i can't recite it off the top of my head but i know the wada. The world anti doping agency for any to be deemed illegal. I mean they have free criterion. You need to talk to them. And i think at least a couple will be one is. Is it dangerous to you. Second is essentially it's slightly ambivalent briefing of the ethical side. The for escapes me completely. So i guess if you're looking at it you know if you take the first of those is dangerous than cryotherapy whilst you know it's jillian there and the and the research behind it is still is still questionable but i think and as a few times in the book actually a lot of these marginal gains you know actually the research behind them is questionable and then it moves into the sphere of placebo. And then it's obviously well. If you feel is making a difference you know. That's a good thing wherever it is. I guess isn't it and then that will move into the mindset. Yeah never seen anyone. So of freeze the definite verbal china whereas some of the the four months enhancing drugs certainly that historically in cycling with e p o blood bags people have died of heart attacks because the bloods fitne- in so much titles of cyclists who would wake up in the middle of the night because they would have to keep the blood flowing around their bodies because it would not much mike and the heartbeats mcgeough hindered and who he you know.

"Are now and it kind of alludes to what before we were talking about in terms of you know everyone used to do the same drills or conditioning drills but now because of kind of marino in this tactical period ization that everything is so interdependent. And you know like what someone trains like on a couple of days before the game depends on what they eat depends on There's like so many different factors that go. Can you talk a little bit. How these different elements are kind of tied together. Yes yeah i can go. I mean there's an example in the book he just about the individualization of young's brings bangs bio which on show many of your listeners. Have heard of but he gave the example of barcelona when pompeo if i don the overs playing on opposite sides played in the center a lot. Be also to play on the fullback as well at times and the stats. He was saying as like alvarez was basically intensity. Sprinting was twice as much as carlos logically than you train them differently. So whether it's you know. I think i think the k. And this came out the salk assigns conference again we races. It's marrying the team ethic. And the bonding. And the team training like said all intertwined but then each individual needs to be in training there in the individual rose and those two tactics dependent as well. So i mean it. It looks like you can soar. See the day where it happened inside. Kim really and this is where skies budget came in. Is that where we could pay. You know a rider a million pound a year or we pay him nine fifty nine sixty year and spend before fifty really on his own coach. Always you know sport scientists. And i think that is probably where the sport is going just the individualization of that specific row. I think down to the detail of the tactics. Who i've said you're a centreback. You know wherever you're precedent for back up and down in your covering different distances different sprint links. But you've also. I think where i found. It was very clever. The the training and is is a bit of a jigsaw. his spoke to chop. Psg martin martin automobile. Kill me for that. i'm pronunciation. But you know he was saying that of the hamstring injuries Problem very real problem in the modern game just because it is so intense and one way to alleviate that problem. Is this more side games. The rondos because i'm going to speak to chuckle. Glenn driss go celtic thing. He used to be at liverpool and he said in his when he had a break between jobs he was waiting. The data being well hamstring injuries. That like four percent year the last few years and he was like thinking well yet is more intense but he drilling down in the detail. More intense doesn't mean why. What's what's the problem wise happening and he preferred to research. I think he actually the hamstring injuries. There's a greater chance than pulping. When your the eighty two hundred percent of max velocity and that's after about ten meters so the small sided games help. Obviously that's not training you. For the purpose of eleven side games have bishops. Were saying yet. Do a small study game. But then they'd have them straighten the gym and doing hamstring work..

"Of high intensity sprinting went up by thirty percent. Yeah i here. So i'll give him right now. So the number of sprints are up thirty five percent so people are sprinting more often than they used to and the sprint distance covered up eighty five percent. So they're making more sprints and longer sprints kind of just proving the notion that you guys are way better way better shape than they were. You know twenty thirty years ago. Yeah and that was a point echoed. The science conference organized by car. Whose formerly press to say. Think free agent now. It seem the job once. He's he's. He's a great practitioner but it was a couple of last friday the hotel football so this was the june basically. Yeah gary neville whistle the keynote speaker and he was very good. I mean you can clearly say he's a high before individual but it's an easy easy stick to beat the current op players with that. Maybe they're not professional partly because they're on so much money and they're on social media in this time the jesse lingard on holidays of went viral. Yeah yeah about. He said that more professional and he he actually attributed one of the reasons why he did retire. You're just seeing the new breed of fullbacks coming through and he was like biz. Why i can keep up with these guys. That just fits a stronger faster. And they've got to be really nothing. That was one of the key points. Alex gross southampton again on the performance. I mentioned that the difference between the premiership and championship physically. It's just the the the speed that the repetition of speed get that word out just being out to sprint sprint sprint. Over and over again and is we. I mean it's such a fast paced game. You can see it now. And he gave the example. Actually they're under team. They run more. Yeah that's what. I was gonna say they cover more distance like i when i read the book. I like put. It died circle to highlight. I was like oh i. Can't you know these younger players are actually covering more distance. But it's it's not about covering distance. It's about getting there quickly and efficiently. Yeah and as alex said actually the distance run not for everyone. Obviously but that partly because you'll not was technically proficient nina aussie messy running from you probably thirteen kilometers game. Generally i could be wrong and it based on your position. What what position on the field. Obviously if you're center back or midfielder and this is not breaking news to anyone listening run more but it definitely distorts. You know the numbers when you get subbed out or or or what have you And you know. I i did want to mention it. Seems like in the book.

Sam ariff cornish loud actually. Who's forgive me to get. His full title is along. The performance sports science aspect he used to be at spurs. He showed us round the training facility.

The amount of pitch is even a pitch that was designed so it was out of the wind they could practice specific drills. The indoor pitches the physio rooms the recovery. The underwater treadmills altitude changes to improve recovery. It was really really very impressive before we get into some of the specifics of things that you bring up in the book. I'd love if you could just give kind of brief overview or history of sports science in this country. Because i think we you know it's commonly known that english teams weren't that into it until arson finger cam. But if you could just kind of bring us from like the seventies eighties nineties two thousand to kind of where we are today. Just a brief overview. Yes well it's as far as i'm aware i'm no historian. But there's gentlemen could tom riley. This was in the seventy s. And well he was a liverpudlian or base the liverpool john moores university. I'm not hundred percent shore. But he's been credited. Certainly by chuck james morton who i interviewed in the book nutritionist. He's with t. minutes. Now we sent. You was the last. But he formally word liverpool. Suddenly james credited thome for being a pioneer in the world of sports science but certainly in the uk they were resistant. To in fact he wrote a book and i'm not even sure if it was published in the uk in the seventy s. I think it might have been published in america because he felt the uk would just so. Yes skeptical. I guess oncho y could be that. Small finan newman regularly mentioned so wasn't a huge impact really seventies and you know even into the eighties of i think there was a huge so of certainly not now with the gps fess. And the like i mean. I went to university in the mid nineties and the strange degree which was a joint english insurance sports science. So i remember at the time thinking you slightly off doing. What's his sports science. You know twenty five years ago. And actually i think around enlighten late. Ninety s and early two thousands move things did start to pick up of. I mean the impact sky and author certainly from a numbers data point of view slightly. Early impacted things but I really think it's been the last. Ten years is is really given it a shot in the arm. I think really done the elite its plan of. Who's at twenty twenty year. Twenty twelve and i mean this of the y. Depress really reported so of the negatives are of this which were very much seen. I think the the lower league clubs who would be missing out on pretty hefty transfer fees because generally was capped because of based on how much time the how young the didn't have to do with talent..

"And when I've been in that situation, it's there's no wear and coaches contract that he says he has to listen to me. It's my job to get him. Because I know okay. I might have some really good information here. I've got good insight. And that's the other thing we presenting inside or we just presenting them. That's the thing at job is insight. Not numbers. Okay. So it's very easy to print offer a nice report with a hell of leather numbers in. What does that mean? So it's about truly about inside. I think that's a problem said the discrepancy in full soccer often comes with a coach game being presented with information. That isn't presented in a way. Hey that he fully can comprehend because at the end of the day. He just wants to win so laws sports science. He said, I'll exactly yeah. I often say that that there's no place in he's contract where it says he had to listen to you. You'll job is to make a difference for him to listen to you. If you've got a message and presented that way, ask the question often if you sat down with the coach and asked him how he wants his daughter presented and often. They haven't had that conversation. It's like me presenting you might be a very visual person. And I'm presenting you always these numbers because many place. Yeah. I want them north colorful grass not the big spreadsheet. That's exactly right. It's a simple conversation because I'm servicing that client. So I think that's a that's a problem. There's a there's a lot of sports science that can take the box interested in the box. I'm interested in making a difference. When you talk about coaches and teams going away. Are you getting the coach to do the morning ritual with you a you embrace embracing the seat on the bed? Mike you bid little bit of a jiggle before you get off at a college. Shell luck. We'll. Look on me. Muslim catches I work with. I probably look at me with. Yeah. But if they do it's going to help them as well because they are under enormous stress. Absolutely. So I think the gentleman would be very good for coach. And it's interesting in respect to that. And I was talking to some people recently about actually monitoring coaches as well because it makes a little sense. Absolutely. And yes, and could they benefit from everyone can benefit from it. So I've worked with some very well, read coaches that do look often themselves in that regard. It definitely is a message that could make make a real I just believe it can make a real difference here because when you look at culprits, and I mean, traditionally when people in wellness programs in corporates, it's middle management higher management to get the big ticket stuff out so out of the Jin chitchat. So I guess he feel reporting to a board or a CEO and the non embracing in the hall morning ritual that you're trying to put across management, and we're talking about anxiety and stress here because when we through the stats out all of the United. Nobody not present look Tyden forty. Six percent ad mood, and what you can take that out of the workplace. You're you're definitely going to be a fierce competitor to people who who have that in their workplace and so from a sports science respective when you walk into a corporate is it is important for the embrace. What you're talking about as it is the management as I'm just that's why I'm sort of working to you that the stupid question. I said when the do the coaches embrace what you do like if the coaches and embracing all the play is doing and the CEO's not embracing what the manager doing your jobs Hano. Yeah. So if they haven't bought into my belief is it's an absolute no brainer that a corporation has their executive team monitored well and once in the high highest end of their performance, so a CEO it'd be the number one. I'm looking at if I'm bored. I would wanna be knowing the health of my CEO.

"So coming from my previous gigs were sports science background, this time off might be a great Kane. And also even Mendez saying that they've changed the way they do their sports conditioning. The performance institute, we might see I mean, remember remember how dominant he was how great he was their skills aren't going to go away. He might be completely refreshed to revitalize. And this might be wishful thinking from my part as as a cane fan, but from everyone I've talked to about the situation people are super excited to see him. And they're not giving in Ghana was shot a chance in hell against a revitalised Kane, and if you've ever competed sometimes time off could be the best possible thing for you. I think he he feels invigorated I feel like he's had time with his family. I read the. Though, it was I thought it was brilliantly written. I just I really hope that we get the cane that I really wanna see. And then he's hundred percent healthy and ready to go. Maybe he gets four or five fights in. That's a lot considering the age. But you know, I always use Cormie as an example, especially coming out of a similar camp. Can he do it? I hope so it's the right time. Right. Because his buddy who is doesn't want to trust pepperpot probably leave in the game at some point this year. You know what? I mean. It's the right time for came to make his move. And I hope you're right about that. Because I mean, if you look at his he's had like one legitimate loss on the the legitimate. That was the Purdue fight. If you look at the the first one we got caught. I mean he had a busted knee, right? Like it was on the the first one he vindicated himself twice. And he went through a couple of you got nicked up a bit in those fights had some more than I think that there's a there's a little bit of like a feeling to him just knowing his intensity at the kind of competitor. Is it probably will be. I think probably was good for him. So it's like almost like if you're going to bet money on the fight UD thinking in that way. I think that you'd be like my money's on came blast goes looking like, you know, reborn came last. It's coming out every bit as intense. But I maybe that's wishful thinking, but I I suspect that'll be the case. But it's good to have him back. I mean, I like having conversations where he's in that picture because it always felt like he was if not be best. He was right there. Among the best for the last what almost decade. I mean, it's been up there for spoke to show on my radio show, Danny, and I asked him is Cain aware that there was this time where everyone was like all he's on the verge of becoming the greatest and then through injury and loss in time off that that he will said, no. But they're just kind of shelved him for a minute and asked him if he was aware and his answer was if he's aware he certainly doesn't act like it. Yeah. So I'm wondering competitively it could become champion again. Is that enough to become the goat heavyweight? Can he be the golden heavyweight what's realistic here? I think it's possibly he was right on the virgin for for. While he was sort of the face of the heavyweight division and man his performances against Julian Assange as where you look at junior. And you're like man is king just did that like he's the best heavyweight right is the best heavyweight out there..
