Recovery Myths and Educated Guesses

Recovery, what the heck is it? We all know it’s an incredibly important part of any training program. Still, there is a lot of mythology around it, including, but not limited to, the idea of a “recovery” workout.

I get into all of it with Professor Trever Gray. (One note, I reference a post which I unfortunately could not find after recording the podcast. My bad).

Nerd Alert: Deep Breathing and Ethics in Coaching

Yet another new concept this week on the Swim Brief. This week, we're doing something called "NERD ALERT":

On nerd alert, I'll be talking with the kind of nerdy people I talk to every week, only this time we'll be recording it. These are people that are doing the work to test out what might actually help you coach better, and what might not. I bring them on, we have a nice discussion about a topic that brings some of these ideas to the fore.

This week, I'm talking to Charles Bachand and Trever Gray. Charles you may remember from my podcast where we talked about Stockholm Syndrome in sports. This week, he shared with me some of the data he is seeing in regards to ethics and coaching.

Trever Gray is somebody I'm really excited to share with everybody. He is a coach's coach and somebody that, as you'll see, is doing the hard work to get an understanding of how to coach better. He makes me better every week with the stuff he sends me and I am going to start sharing some of that with you. Enjoy
