Coaching Cues for Sprint Performance w/Nick Winkleman

What is the BEST way to provide coaching cues for speed development?

In part one of this series Nick and I discussed how to get better at understanding sports science research.

In part two we focus on his own recent research and discuss the following:

  • What is the influence of attentional focus on a 10m sprint?
  • What effect does skill level have on the way information is processed and applied?
  • What were your results and were they significant?
  • Are internal cues bad to use when working with elite athletes?
  • What role does language interpretation play in understanding of and application of a coaching cue?
  • What is the relationship between skill level, skill type, and coaching cues?
  • Practical application for coaches with younger athletes
Nick Winkelman is the head of athletic performance & science for the Irish Rugby Football Union. His primary role is to oversee the delivery and development of strength & conditioning and sports science across all national (Men and Women | XV’s and 7’s) and provincial teams (Leinster, Munster, Connacht, and Ulster). Prior to working for Irish Rugby, Nick was the director of education for EXOS (formerly Athletes' Performance), located in Phoenix, AZ.
