Ep. 162: The Language of Coaching, feat. Nick Winkelman
Show Notes

This week we're joined by Dr. Nick Winkelman!  Nick is the author of The Language of Coaching and the Head of Athletic Performance at Irish Rugby.  In this episode, Nick shares concepts that coaches can use to maximize athletic performance in their students.

Topics discussed include:

Types of cues: internal, external, analogy.

The "long loop" for teaching new movements: describe it, demonstrate it, cue it, do it, debrief it.

The "short loop" for those familiar with the cue: cue it, do it, debrief it.
