On this episode of the podcast I talk with Coach Jamie Pasquin. We start it off with some of Coach Pasquin's past experiences and how working with such a large amount of sports influences his outlook now. We also talk about his contribution to " The Gamut of Performance: The young strength and conditioning coach's guide to success", and the thought framework that underlies the book/ chapter. We then dive into the training process, and how that looks for different sports, as well as how you can individualize programs for different sports while still adhering to scientific principles and not training into a gimmick. We round the conversation out with some personal development concepts that dive deep into self reflection and self awareness, that are rooted in psychology.
