Nick Winkelman joins the podcast to chat about his new book, The Language of Coaching. Nick elaborates on why this book was important to write and its focus on the research supporting the superiority of external cues vs internal cues. Nick explains when internal language is effective and when a coach needs to step back and simply direction into external cues. We discuss why everyday lifters and even elite athletes don't automatically make great coaches, and how the appropriate use of language is as important for everyday clients as it is for high level athletes. Nick also builds in some ideas to help the coach who's reluctant to change from a system they've long used and learned to trust.
