This video is an excerpt from the September 2017 Q&A with Bill Hartman.
How do we skip levels of competence when working with a client or patient?
I would argue that during this “treatment”, you didn’t objectively improve anything. You simply taught them to spit out and output that you like better.
If you want to change a squat, put a kettlebell in front of them.
If you want to change it again, give them a heavier kettlebell.
There’s a difference between a skill and a task.
- Tasks have context.
- Skills require a level of competence.
- Task = shooting a free throw
- Skill = repeatedly shooting free throws well
