Lessons from Japans Win in Rugby World Cup

When Japan beat South Africa I went back to my notes of Eddie Jones presentation at Global Coaches House in London 2012 during the Olympic games.

It all came to fruition on Saturday with the win over South Africa. It was not…

What about LTAD?

LTAD has almost become a cliché. Everyone has an LTAD program and they all look the same. How can that be? We need to seriously rethink the whole concept of LTAD. It is not a model, a framework or a pathway. Everyone is not the same as is implied by the Balyi model and all the derivatives of that model. All of these models imply a linear march to the top of the athletic achievement pyramid. In reality it is a very…

We do that!

Nothing will take the air out of a conversation with a coach for me faster than the statement “we do that.” Usually I just walk away muttering to myself while shaking my head. Great, if you do that then why do have so many injuries? Why to do your teams and athletes consistently under perform. Sure you do the same exercises and workouts but you have missed the whole point. It’s not the exercise or the workout. It’s the…

Work That Work’s

10238946.69da6460.640 Work! Work! Work! It is comfortable to just do work. Anyone can do work and look busy but is your work actually working? Is it productive? Are you digging a deeper hole or making progress toward a goal? How do you know? As a coach this an important question to ask daily.…

If you do what you have always done …

You will get what you have always got. Not very good English but so true. Over the course of my career I have observed that those that are the best are constantly working at getting better. Sometimes the changes are subtle and other times they are very drastic – but change is a constant. Sustained excellence demands constant change and adaptation. Change is necessary to grow, to push the envelope but always building on…

My Strength Coach of the Year Nomination

I just got an email from NSCA soliciting Strength coach of the year nominations. Let me preface this by saying that these types of awards are ridiculous. Mostly popularity contests given those with winning teams with no understanding of what goes on behind the scenes.

That being said I have a nomination – I nominate Joe Anonymous, Joe…
