  • Science of Sport Vs. Artistry of Coaching

    30/04/2021 Duration: 19min

    ‌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".

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.

  • Making Sense of Sleep Duration Monitoring

    31/12/2019 Duration: 17min

    In this episode of the Adam Ringler Show, I'm discussing a recent tweet of mine sharing a snippet of "Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams" by Dr. Matthew Walker. Are we, sport scientists, actively monitoring sleep durations and qualities in our student-athletes to only measure it or should we actually derive meaningful and actionable information from the subjective recall? I believe the later but recognize that sleep is an unbelievably challenging element to actively control. Who is the author of this book? Matthew Walker is a British scientist and professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. His research focuses on the impact of sleep on human health and disease.
