Movement: How the nervous system produces it, and how that should change your coaching

The nervous system is involved in everything from our vision, taste, emotion, and memory. But, the biggest task it takes on is producing movement! Get ready to go DEEP into how the brain and spinal cord work together to make us move, and why coaches should have a basic understanding of this.

For example, Ty teaches his kids to be faster by teaching them a few smaller skills, then bringing these skills together into more complex movement. Rehearsal progresses to chaos.

The order of this is important! In this video, I’m going to explain why. Plus, we’ll go through:

  • Brain organization
  • Spinal cord organization
  • Central Pattern Generators
  • How the environment impacts these circuits
  • How this should change your coaching
