Performance Talk with Dr. Robert Butler


This episode of the Performance Talk podcast is a must listen!  Here are some of the many pearls in the podcast:

  •  It's easy to make things sexy and complicated. It's really hard to make things foundational, accurate and efficient.
  • Consistency with intensity and intent in performance training will be way more effective for the individual and the team in the long term. Complexity and each coach doing their own thing will ultimately only end up confusing the athlete.
  • Sometimes we think as performance and rehabilitation staff that we are “essential” and that the team and player revolve around us and our goals. We need to adopt a “support and serve” mindset.  We are a very small part of what our athletes do and achieve. We need to be there to support and serve and embody that mindset.
