In our latest episode of Powering Performance, we are joined by Steve Gisselman, Sport Science Consultant for VX Sport. Tune in to hear about the growing relationship between sports science and strength and conditioning, how coaches can continue to expand their skill set, and technology in sport.
Ways to listen:
Check out these three highlights:
1. Steve speaks to the relationship between sport science and strength and conditioning. With the need for sport science growing in organizations, Steve emphasizes the importance of continuing education for coaches, whether this is going back to school, taking online certifications, or finding free online classes.
"I think there's a growing reliance on data, a growing reliance on reporting and analysis. So you're going to have to know how to do those things."
2. Steve shares his opinions on limitations with technology. A main limitation he believes is that we try to oversimplify technology that is complex.
"You cannot oversimplify what you actually have with a GPS. It is very complex and very complicated, however, you can still get value out of it because it doesn't need to be overly complicated, once it's out."
3. Steve has been live streaming with different guests and plans to host round table with different coaches. Check these out on the VX Sport Twitter and Facebook page.”I love having a live audience where they can ask questions, they can be a part of it and I can find out where they're coming from.”
