I favour representative “game-like” activities. I see value in categories for interrogating practice, but must acknowledge simplification of complexity. IMO better to focus on principles of good activity design; not “vs” approach. Disrupting fashionable rhetoric my aim here.

I see good intentions here, but worry that this contributes to a simplified “vs” rhetoric in coaching. Are all “games” universally good; all “drills” always bad? What are the unintended consequences of stigmatising some forms of practice - is the evidence so clear cut?

There's something about Jim Wendler that I really enjoy listening to him talk. Used to read all his articles on EFS back in the day. I think it's his simplicity & sense of humour

Counter to ego & bias but so effective. That chat about inversion was invaluable. This is good on a related note "In filth it will be found"

Had this conversation 3 times so far this week so thought I'd post this video which sums it up well. There's much more value to be found in trying to disprove your hypothesis than confirm it 🤓

Then with a different group working at the other end of the spectrum 👇. They've also done sessions as above & at the end I asked how games impacted their movement quality & what that might mean for their practice - some excellent thoughts from the group

My challenge to S&C Group today was to create games using a tennis ball that somehow include the Fundamental Movements we have been learning. I was very impressed with the self organisation, creativity, effort & fun they created

"The approaches we employ shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all or set in stone. We need to be flexible and adaptable" Good piece

Yes whole host of factors contributed but it felt like the right approach at that time with that group as part of a long term plan. I'm slightly concerned that there's a narrative developing now where these things are seen as poor practice. Context is everything so "It Depends"

I only gave 2 cues. Just trying to work out whether they are internal or external - "Whole foot flat on the floor" while doing extensive hops & "Pull your elbow back (90°)" while doing some running drills

I Coached a session this afternoon where I exclusively did drills, gave explicit information, didn't ask any questions, played no games & everything was sagittal plane... 🤣

Seems to be heading that way. I was listening to a podcast today where one Coach said "I know we are not allowed to do technical practice now...."

On the flip side I think I can be a bit too plain in my language sometimes.... 🤬 😂
