In this clip shot at a recent Coaches Prep Course, HQ trainer Pat Sherwood describes the macro-micro-macro approach to coaching.

Sherwood explains that he takes a mental snapshot of the whole movement, then pinpoints a problem to fix and uses a hands-on approach to implement that fix. According to Sherwood, after correcting it’s imperative that the coach return to the macro view to see if the hands-on fix improved the overall movement.

HQ trainers Chuck Carswell and Chris Spealler demonstrate this approach as they work with athletes to correct movement. Watch their progressions and learn how you can improve your own coaching skills.
