As training and coaching techniques evolve in sports, so does the language associated with said training and coaching. Adding to all this are custom designed phrases and comments, tailored to a particular program, business, product, etc.
So, if you wanted to understand fully what Godly is posting here, ask him to detail his narrative, enough so his opinions do you justice.
Here’s an experience that I had.
In the mid 80’s there were three pitchers that were brought onto a club that I was the bullpen coach with. I reluctantly took the position, primarily because of all the training and coaching techniques that were circulating at the time. I was more of a managing coach rather than a training coach. Hence, along with all those techniques were greater focus on Kinesiology, specific sciences to athletic health and so on.
Now I will freely admit that I am not into such science, nor was the franchise that I was employed by. So, my interests were to be partly responsible for the scheduled “rotation” for any given day, from the pitching staff.
OK… fast forward …when I was hit with "hey coach, should I address this…that… according to …and then …, my only expression was blank as was my answer…"sure guy, sounds good to me.“
I later started to lookup some of this jargon up, only to find it product oriented with something being sold as a service, rather than science. In other words, a lot of guys coming to our organization were literally at the ends of their career, or haphazardly starting one, coming off of a training program that “sold” them on …” you can do this with our help, and here’s the language that we use to do it."
Today, a lot has changed since the mid 80’s. So I’m pretty sure most of those hucksters have gone by the roadside, replaced with good stuff. On the other hand, I rarely follow that kind of science, being more of “managing” coach, not a “trainer”, with what I know works for the business that I was in.
Language is so important to your overall understanding of the world around you, that you must pursue your questions with deliberate and aggressive purpose.
