This is the 90 min narrated slide presentation I created for the Climbstrong Performance Climbing Coach Summit 2020.
It's aimed at coaches and those wanting to better understand the 'why' behind what I recommend climbers do to improve. It's all about making sense of the scientific research and theory behind learning, skill and movement. I translate the academic knowledge into plain English, and explore straightforward ways to apply it in your day-to-day coaching at all ability levels.
Some of the topics demystified include:
‘Constraints-Led’ learning, and how it looks in climbing
Practice types and how to select the right one for each climbing situation
Neurology of learning, and why it should affect your session structure
Preparing climbers for the impact of stress upon their technique
Climbing Movement: Theory into Practice
