Investigating the concept of 'adaptability within adaptability' - A conversation with Shawn
The Superbowl is coming this weekend!!
As my excitement increases in the build up to the amazing global showcase of sporting endeavour and razzmatazz, I thought it was the perfect time to invite the human encyclopedia of all things movement skill in the NFL, Shawn Myszka (aka @movementmiyagi on Twitter) and author of the amazing blog 'Football Beyond the Stats' back on the podcast to share some of his insights on some of the star players of the season and geek out about skill acquisition and coaching.
In this discussion, Shawn shares some of the challenges he has faced this year facing up to some limitations in his coaching repertoire supporting athletes who are "hyper adaptable on the field but not hyper adaptable off the field!" He also dissects some of the star movers of the year, shares his approach to challenging players and taking them outside their comfort zone and we explore some deeper concepts around adaptability.
This is one not to be missed.
Some stuff from Saquon Barkley to drool over!!
