#063 - Science of Sport Vs. Artistry of Coaching

Decoding Excellence Apr 30, 2021

‌‌In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm discussing the all too common debate between sport science and performance coaching. To be fair, it is a common debate I hear often between the pure academic sport scientists and strength and conditioning coaches "in the field". In this Random Episode, I dive into this debate between an evidence-led, sport science, data-driven decision model versus the applied nature of strength and conditioning or sport coaching.

This was a fun episode to record because I get on a roll talking about this material.

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

I go into these random shows without notes but full of passion, insights, and opinions. I believe with conviction, you'll take away something interesting from this show and I hope it delivers you a little bit of value in your day.
