Vigor Life Podcast · EP110: The Language of Coaching & the Art and Science of Teaching Movement w/ Nick Winkelman
I’ve followed Nick’s work for over a decade after meeting him at the Perform Better Summit speaking on the topic of coaching. After every workshop that he hosted over the years, I always left a better coach—curious and thirsty for more.
Nick has a ton of experience from studying and applying his knowledge in the field. His resume is evidence of this. Nick is he currently the head of athletic performance & science for the Irish Rugby Football Union. His primary role is to oversee the delivery and development of strength & conditioning and sports science across all national and provincial teams. Before working for Irish Rugby, Nick was the director of education and training systems for EXOS (formerly Athletes' Performance), located in Phoenix, AZ. As the director of education, Nick oversaw the development and execution of all internal and external educational initiatives. As a performance coach, Nick managed the speed and assessment component of the EXOS NFL Combine Development Program and supported many athletes across the NFL, MLB, NBA, National Sports Organizations, and Military.
Due to his knowledge and real world application there’s no better person to have wrote the book, “The Language of Coaching”(which is truly a body of work and must for any coach). It’s what Nick and I dive into this episode—the art and science of teaching movement, helping clients move and perform better, get better results, and fulfill your potential as a coach, as well as differentiate yourself and stand out from the rest.
Let's go.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN
What triggered Nick to write this book and what experiences in his life and coaching career drove the focus to make this such a depth of knowledge.
Why you need to be good at the “What” but you must be even better at the “How.” We dive into what every coach needs to understand.
The two things that separate the good coaches from the greatest coaches.
The reason you still need to understand anatomy, assessment, the X’s and O’s of training as a foundation.
Attention powers leaning but motivation powers attention. We talk about how to get both.
The reason why a coach MUST be a great salesman.
How to understand the client’s personal narrative and use it throughout every training session. We share specific examples you can use.
Why most coaches talk too much and how it actually reduces results. We outline the right amount of coaching and what the best of the best do.
The “Capture - Keep - Direct” concept of coaching and how it will supercharge your clients attention.
The breakdown of a group training session and the “What, Why, How” concept of getting clients on point to have the best session.
What the “Read Thread Review” is and how it allows clients to celebrate their wins and learn better, faster, and retain it.
The 3 key things every client must have to success long-term and how YOU can help them instil them.
How to find cues unique to each individual when it comes to coaching (which will help you connect to the client).
The Goldilocks Principle and why you have to use it with people to make sure they don’t get bored or frustrated when training.
Why you need to ask yourself how you are challenging clients externally and how you are challenging them internally. You need both every session.
What “D-D-C-D-D” is and how this structure can help you organize communication.
Reducing stress and anxiety for clients and putting them in a better position for performing the movement. We outline 3 different ways to do it.
Strategies to build your coaching cues repertoire and system. Nick and I discuss how you can do it.
And much, much more.

193: Nick Winkelman on The Language of Coaching and Skill Acquisition | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Play
Read more
Today’s episode features Nick Winkelman, head of athletic performance and science for the Irish Rugby Football Union.   Nick was formerly the director of education for EXOS, and oversaw the speed and assessment component of their combine development program.  Nick is an internationally recognized speaker, and has his Ph.D with a focus on motor learning and sprinting.  Nick also has an anticipated upcoming book called “The Language of Coaching” where he goes in detail on his learnings and methods on the impact that communication has on an athlete’s ability to learn and perform movements.

Just like we’ve mentioned on episodes talking about mental training for sport, the art of communicating with athletes, and how we talk to their conscious and subconscious mind is heralded, but not given much actual attention in our daily processes.  Perhaps its because coaching, and specifically strength & conditioning often seems to draw more numbers and qualitative driven individuals than those concerned with the inherent artistry involved in the coaching profession, and in being a human being in general.  This being said, I’m really excited to have Nick on the show this week, because he is a master of the “conversation” we coaches have with athletes to help lead them to their highest potential on a physical, mental and emotional level.

On today’s show, Nick goes into how he became interested in coaching cues and communication, ideas on coaching cue differences, the importance and effects of using analogies, and much more.  This episode is a must listen, because this is the type of material that isn’t emphasized in modern coaching curriculums, but at the same time, might be the biggest thing holding coaches and athletes back from reaching their highest level of performance and enjoyment in sport and human movement.

Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.
Key Points

How Nick got interested in the art of cueing and language to assist in skill acquisition
Why some cues and coaching models cause technique to not be retained well and how we can make our technical coaching practice “stick” better
Some primary differences between internal and external cues
The power of simple awareness versus hardline internal cues
The power of analogies in creating imagery for athletes that assists them in technical acquisition
How creativity is an important element of becoming better at the technical instruction of athletes
"And then I thought to myself, "What's the number one variable, what's the number one coaching strategy that I am using to manipulate how they run?" i.e. the coordination and quality of their movement, and it hit me: my voice, my cuing, my coaching."

"When I say coach I'm really talking about movement professionals in general. So if you teach movement for a living, I'm calling you a coach. Because... ...my definition of a coach is anyone that helps to move others to the place they want to be.”

"I'll define a cue as the last idea that goes in an athletes head before they move."

"If I want to put a little bit more energy behind that cue, I might say, drive the bar away from the bench. So the bench itself has nothing directly to do with the outcome, but by giving that focused thought of, bar away from bench, it allows me to narrow my focus in on a very tangible goal and the environment helps me do that."

"So internal and external cues tend to be literal, they reference the literal body or the literal world around me that I can touch feel and see. But analogies reference the figurative and leverage the mind’s visual system to be able to move 'as if'."

"When it comes to the type of things you should think about while you move, to optimize performance now, but most importantly learning later, the cues that fall on the external and that analogy side,
