My Story about ‘Taking the Time to Watch’ good throws coaching videos
I remember back in the day, I was what you’d call a “technically-obsessed” individual.
I used to watch VHS tapes for hours on end, using the slo-mo feature. You could frame it, rewind it, and it was all grainy and super old-school… but it was really effective for me.
One of the first videos I ever bought was Gold Metal Discus by Matt Wilkins; a 45-50 minute video on how to throw a discus.
I laugh just thinking about all the time I spent watching that same video.
It was good!
I must have watched it no less than 100 times—and that’s no exaggeration!
The important thing is that every time I watched it- over and over and over- I tried to see if I could glean something new out of it… and I did.
Years later, I’d got to meet and work with Matt Wilkins, and then I learned even more.
With the TCR® System, we’ve created a valuable resource that’s meant to be utilized again and again.
So, with that being said, check out the video below….
… watch it once, then again and see watch new info pops out.
Tomorrow, watch this video again, and I bet you pick up something new again!
The moral of the story is that just like learning a language, there is no shortcut.
You’ve got to put in the time, and learn the right way.
That’s why helping young athletes develop is our ultimate goal – and better than that, we want to improve the sport across the board too!
