David Epstein writes about sports science and medicine, Olympic sports, and is an investigative reporter. He was a 2014 TED speaker, and his science writing has won a number of awards, including the Society of Professional Journalists 2010 Deadline Club Award for an article on the genetics of sports performance; Time Inc.’s Henry R. Luce Award for public service for an article on the dangers of the dietary supplement industry; and the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association’s “Big Hearted Journalism” award for his story “Following the Trail of Broken Hearts,” on sudden cardiac death in athletes. That story included reporting on the death of his friend and former track and field training partner, Kevin Richards, and was selected as number 83 in the top 100 stories of the last 100 years by Columbia Journalism alumni. Epstein was a 2011 Livingston Award finalist for a package that included articles on pain in sports and the anticipatory skills that allow Major Leaguers to hit 100 mph fastballs.

  • It is amazing what sports teaches us. This is a lovely presentation. Coincidentally, I am writing a presentation on sports-derived strategies. The one example I finished and I may leak it here is a diver who fails to plan for his diving. Those who fail to plan for their lives fail to plan for their works. An enjoyable presentation, indeed.

  • 1 When Wayne Gretzky said, “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been” he was describing an elite athlete’s ability to see the future before it happens.
  • 2 Experts & elite athletes ‘chunk’ information to quickly divert their attention from irrelevant input, to the smaller meaningful chunks they’ve seen before.
  • 3 No two individuals will respond to training in the same way. it’s part genetics, part environment.
  • 4 If your potential seems ever more elusive, try polarized training. Split your training into high volume/low intensity or low volume/maximum intensity; eliminating the middle threshold completely.

  • 5 Genetics aside,it’s your ability to self-regulate your behavior that will consistently lead to optimal performance.
  • 6 To train for impact,compress your environment to simulate the real world as closely as possible. think ecological validity.
  • 7 While most great performers stagnate at good enough, Elite ones focus on making tiny improvements each day.
  • 8 Athletic improvement is a blend of biology and psychology. Personalize your approach.
  • 9 Beware of specialization. While Tiger Woods is an outlier, it’s wise to diversify your sports experience before committing your child to a particular sport.
  • 10 Contrary to conventional thought, the earlier you push someone into a particular endeavor, the more likely they’ll fail.
  • What do you do when you hit a plateau? REALLY REFLECT...
