He's the type of bloke that if you have an elephant he'd have a paper bag to put it in

Told him my wife would give him a run for his money & he asked her, in all seriousness, "Alright, what are the major forces in external rotation of the shoulder?" 🔔🔚 😂 (Yes, she did tell him to fuck off....)

Talking to a bloke in a pub banging on about how he, as an S&C Coach, is so superior to any Personal Trainer (Wife's a PT, 18yrs experience). Thought he looked familiar, turns out I tutored him on 4 day S&C course few yrs ago...no degree, not Accredited... They walk among us....

That is much harder to identify given the complex nature of learning (hard to pin down to the intervention) but I'd say this type of thing

That's a pretty big question to answer in a tweet! The worst I've seen was a youth game where 2 coaches from each side were actually on the pitch telling the players what to do. 1 screamed at a winger "Tackle him!" as the oppo ran at him, winger looked at the coach & got snotted!

I think that was confirmed in the 2nd week when a local said to my wife "A rat learn quicker than that boy..." after I hit my head on a beam for the 5th time! 🤕

Yes - though sometimes I don't to see if they pick it up. Mentioned in first session - they forgot a lot of what we had talked about cos I hadn't spoken to them but by IDing that they worked on it for the next day

Yes but we had multiple sessions so multiple opportunities for the reviews plus a fair bit in game. Not thought about it much but think I'll try to keep it under 2 mins from now on

Enjoyed listening to that Si. Great to hear the kids have the confidence to put their ideas out there. Facilitated of course by a patient coach striving to create an environment where it is encouraged & safe to do so. Good stuff 👍

Thanks Greg. I spoke too much for my liking & was a bit too leading but there were reasons for that with that group. Was brilliant to watch them develop over the week though

Takes me back a few years in our chats! Does Arthur Reber get a mention? Hope all is good with you on the other side of the world mate!
