“A lot of the time, you could win a lot of games and there may not be any impact from strength and conditioning.You might see them one time a week in the in season, but they go undefeated in conference play. OR, we know strength coaches that do an awesome job and then they don’t win a lot of games and they’re not part of a team that wins a lot of games.”
Today we are joined by former Gardner-Webb University Director of Athletic Performance Chris McCormick to talk about real world issues that he has seen as a director. Chris starts out by sharing with us what issues that we, as a profession, need to bring to the forefront about what we do. This leads right into us talking about culture and how that, and the players personalities, need to dictate training programs as much as the need for actual measurable results. Chris then shares with us how he uses open discussion with athletes and coaches to help impact what and how they program, along with how they can serve “two masters” by taking both of their incite. We finish discussing the connection between running your weight room like a business and athlete monitoring and how they connect in communication with our departments.
