Nick Winkelman is the Director of Education at EXOS where he oversees all mentorship education courses and is a full-time strength and conditioning coach. He also lectures nationally and internationally on all topics pertaining to exercise science, strength & conditioning and personal training.
In this episode of the Food For Fitness podcast, Nick chats all about coaching cues. What are they and you’ll learn the difference between internal and external cues and when they’re best used. Nick explains how someone’s physiological makeup can affect their ability to perform certain exercises and how he allows for this when designing workout routines.
We’ll cover Nick’s favourite cues for teaching the deadlift, squat and the hip hinge. He shares why single leg or unilateral work is so badass and why more people should be doing it, his thoughts on sprint training for the general public and why he thinks it’s perhaps too dangerous. He talks about why group training is so effective and his thoughts on Crossfit.
