Today\u2019s podcast welcomes coach 泰·特雷尔.\u00a0 Ty is currently an NBA physical preparation coach and has a wealth of experience ranging from training athletes out of a garage, to coaching high school basketball, to being mentored by some of the top professionals in the coaching industry.\u00a0 Individuals such as Lee Taft, Bill Hartman, and Mike Robertson have fostered in Ty a unique and powerful perspective on blending gym-training methods with athletic biomechanics and outputs. A running theme of this show has been using gym training methods to cater to the organic manner by which athletes live and move, rather than working against it.\u00a0 In a recent episode, #220, Kyle Dobbs talked about \u201chingy, knees-out squats\u201d and the cascade of negative effects these brought out in the athletic population.\u00a0 Personally, I had loads of elasticity in my teens and early 20\u2019s, but I slowly started to lose the \u201celastic monster\u201d by starting to train \u201cby the book\u201d according to current strength and conditioning methods and protocols. This show (and podcast in general) is about winning that elastic power back.\u00a0 泰·特雷尔 starts off by sharing some of the key points he learned in his beginnings as a coach under Lee Taft in regards to training athlete speed and movement.\u00a0 From there, we transition into all things squatting, and the load-unload, \u201cexpand-compress\u201d paradigm that has come out of the work and ideas of Bill Hartman, and how this relates to athletic movement on the court or field of play.\u00a0 We finish with some practical ideas on how to make trunk and core training highly transferable, and represent the movement principles we want to embody in our total-body athletic movements.

Timestamps and Main Points Ty\u2019s start with Lee Taft, and some cornerstone teachings he has learned from Lee that have kept with him in his coaching How to use bands and resistance to create lines of force on an athlete that can help them use joints better, or get into desired athletic positions Approaching elite athletes versus youth in regards to training their sport movement ability Questions on general versus any sort of specific skill movement training for a professional athlete How athletic movement works in light of the expansion and compression of the pelvic floor, and the body in general The effect of overly \u201chinging\u201d every lift, and how a state of anterior tilt reduces aerobic capacity and even muscular compliance and elasticity Reflexive core training and experiences to help athletes train their trunk and pelvis in a manner that reflects load and explode paradigms \u201cWhen I started, it was important that Lee made me be a coach first (before the standard \u201ctextbook\u201d learning)\u201d \u201cAs long as you have forward momentum, it\u2019s OK not to be perfect today\u201d \u201cThose are the three things that you are looking at in a single motion in athletics: Can you achieve the position, can you produce the force you need to in the time you need to, and can you do it in the context of the situation\u201d \u201cIf you get a 10-year old, they are pretty compliant.\u00a0 They don\u2019t have years of physical stress to let compensatory strategies come into play\u201d \u201cWith the younger kids, you don\u2019t necessarily have to focus on power to improve power because they are just improving everything\u201d \u201cIt\u2019s the simple stuff (the pro athlete) doesn\u2019t do well (such as a basic squat pattern), because they never had to\u2026 I\u2019ll say this, it\u2019s the fundamentals that save pro athletes\u201d \u201cHow many times can you do near-max efforts before your body can\u2019t handle it, and says, \u201cI need to cheat somehow\u201d\u201d \u201cThe number one thing I find (the NBA population) needs is the ability to squat.\u00a0 When I see someone who can squat, I can see someone who can maintain proximal control of their pelvis\u201d \u201cIf I want to load something\u2026 I want to be able to squat, to expand\u201d \u201cExhale is propulsion, it\u2019s output\u201d \u201cIf I\u2019m going to do a cut and push right to left\u2026 if I can\u2019t squat down, my push angle is going to be too vertical\u201d \u201cThe inhalation, not only physically moves the pelvis backwards into a posterior tilt, so I can reach greater degrees of hip flexion, and so I can get depth, but it also expands the pelvis when you do that, and it creates that posterior weight shift that allows you to sit down\u201d \u201cOur industry (strength and conditioning) tries to find ways around faults (making things more of a hinge than a true squat)\u2026 maybe if your purpose is powerlifting, but if you want to demonstrate full excursion of moving, you need to be able to squat well, I call it squatting in a phone booth\u201d \u201cA lot of Olympic lifters, once they get the bars past their knees, the hips have to come forward\u201d \u201cWhen you are constantly in an anteriorly tilt position, an exhaled position, you tend to be less aerobically fit systemically\u201d \u201cFor knee tendonosis, for the tissues to be pliable and move, you need to get the pelvis to move\u201d \u201cA concentric environment is a rigid environment, it has to be to produce force\u201d \u201cRapid-fire med ball scoops is a good way to get a bunch of reps in to teach the body to reflexively turn the abs on\u201d \u201cSometimes we need to do ab work that feeds us towards movement we need to get into, like a reverse crunch\u201d 泰·特雷尔 is a performance coach who has a broad range of experiences in the fitness and physical preparation industry.\u00a0 From his beginnings of coaching in a 2 car garage, Ty has built his philosophy coaching high school basketball, running speed camps, being a director at a YMCA, as well as working for tremendous leaders in our industry like Lee Taft, Bill Hartman, and Mike Robertson.\u00a0 This work eventually led Ty to become a strength and conditioning coach for a professional soccer team and ultimately ending up as a performance coach in the NBA, as he has synthesized all of these educational experiences into a training process based in science, practicality, and simplicity.
