In this episode my mentor Liam Hennessy and I sit down in front of 60 Irish coaches and talk about the pillars of strength and conditioning. In the first part of this conversation we chat about his work with 3 time Major Champion Padraig Harrington and legendary coach Bob Torrance. We go deep and I mean DEEP into the values that make up great coaches and what you can do to define your systems, philosophy and coaching style to maximize your effectiveness as a coach. Other topics like following your gut, the more you know the simpler your coaching gets, social media and shock headlines in fitness, principles should guide the message and so much more. We also talk about how to be an old school coach with new school athletes and the perils of trying to be your athletes best friend. We also open up the floor for questions from the crowd after the Coach Glass Explosive Rotational Power Workshop at Setanta College in Ireland.
Liam has been such a big part of my development as a strength coach and educator and I can’t thank him enough for his friendship and tutelage.
