Talent & The Krush Brain Game; Dr. Alex Roberts – Season Wrap Up #5

Dec 10/ 2021/

It was inevitable that our 2021 themes, talent, talent identification, and The Krush Brain Game, are on course to collide head on as we wrap up this year on Krush Performance. These three areas are connected in so many ways and as we work to connect all of the dots, we need to get to the very source of athlete development and player performance, our coaches.
I go Down Under to visit once again with Dr. Alex Roberts from the Department of Sports Coaching and Development at the School of Allied Health, Human Services and Sport at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. He has done extensive work looking at coaching bias and how, as coaches, we tend to select athletes not based on talent, skill, or dedication but rather on how an athlete might fit into our personal coaching style. We will discuss the art of athlete selection, how we must address the unique needs of athletes at different levels of development, look at the important difference between forecasting talent and selecting talent, and pose the hypothetical question, “What if we had a talent identification system for coaches?”

Talent & The Krush Brain Game: Stewart Armstrong – Season Wrap Up

Dec 06/ 2021/

Is it possible that our kids are spending less time outside than prison inmates? The answer to this will alarm you!
The area in which we play and roam is shrinking by the year and for our kids, it could very well be restricting their development. The environment and the influence it will have on your growth and development may be more powerful than we realize. If so, then how does a lack of free play and a shrinking general radius of play impact our ability to learn, adapt, and function in sport and in the real world of life?

It’s an important topic that gets very little consideration. With the greatest of intentions are we hindering the development of our youth, our athletes, and ourselves?
This week on Krush Performance, we talk with Stewart Armstrong, Skill Acquisition and Talent Development Expert and host of The Talent Equation Podcast, to discuss athlete development, coaching, and why it is so critical to just let our kids play.

Join Jeff as he interviews Dr Yoni Freedhoff; The Diet Fix: Why Diets Fail and How to Make Yours Work

Oct 29/ 2014/

Collectively we have cut fat consumption by a third since the mid 70’s, the number of workout centers have tripled in the last 10yrs – yet obesity and overweight has doubled and tripled in the mean time and the number of new fad diets is out of control: low carb – no carb – high protein – no protein -no fat -beach -paelo – vegan…..

The deal is diets don’t work! In fact stats have shown that 90% of all diets fail yet right now the diet industry takes in about $60 Billion per year in North America alone!
Make no mistake the Big Food industry is in it to make money – fast food, junk food, the supplement industry. It’s crazy to think the stress on the health care dollar is reaching a breaking point.
In fact health issues due to overweight and obesity have taken over from smoking as the number 1 preventable cause of death…SCARY.

We ask the question which is more effective for modifying weight – diet or exercise?
Answer: Of your modifiable weight it’s 80% Diet, 20% Exercise

If you are an athlete, parent, coach or someone conscious about the food you and your family eat, I strongly suggest you follow Dr. Freedhoff’s blog WeightyMatters.ca
One of my favourite posts of his – Juice is not a *#@> fruit!

Join us to listen to Yoni Freedhoff, he is not afraid to call a spade a spade. and that is why we like him!
