Shawn Myszka on Developing Elite Game Speed

Shawn Myszka currently serves as a Personal Performance Advisor & Movement Coach for over a dozen NFL players each year, where he guides the performance of players to the limits of their potential.

Through his frequent presentations at strength coach and sport conferences nationwide, Shawn has become a sought-after clinician and leader in the field on topics like the transfer of training to sport performance and the development of mastery in the movement of athletes.

In this show, Shawn and I talk about what we need to do to improve movement and skill acquisition with our athletes, his 3 b’s that work to create superior movement training, and how a former competitive bodybuilder became a go-to resource for NFL athletes.

Shawn is a passionate, enthusiastic and thought provoking guy, and I really hope you enjoy our show.
