In the latest episode, I speak with Joe Connolly Head Coach Football Sports Performance at Arizona State University Sun Devils Football.
We have an awesome conversation on a variety of topics that include how he started out in coaching, having strong mentors. Establishing programs for over 120 athletes, the fundamental movements are critical to success.
How he takes the ‘Athlete dictates the programming’ meaning a good coach needs to have the skill to adapt the program based on what the athlete needs at that time. The minimum effective dose, incorporating variability in programming to allow for flexibility and adaptability for the coach and athlete.
