Give the Body Credit


Good reply’s to my post on rotation. Once again it reminds that that so often we fail to give the body credit. The structure of the body dictates its ability to move efficiently and adapt. As coaches we can’t be afraid to put the body in postures that allow it to move, adapt and self organize. Every day that I coach now I see examples of the body’s ability to solve movement problems efficiently and with immediate dispatch. As coaches it seems one of our biggest challenges is creating movement problems that challenge the body in a variety of postures moving through all planes of motion that address the demands of the sport. This is a fun and FUNdamental challenge, one that makes coaching exciting and interesting.
