This week, Trevor Ragan of trainugly.com joined Stephen to talk about "how to train ugly."  Trevor has had a tremendous amount of success breaking down the old, traditional view of training (i.e. control every aspect of the athletes technique, and drill over and over and over the same way, then hopefully eliminate enough mistakes to create success) with concepts like random vs block training and the growth mindset (touch the ball often, learn through mistakes and develop the ability to live in the moment and produce the results.) He shared his journey from talking to the researchers who knew about the concepts of motor learning and then ultimately, attempting  to educate coaches and athletes about a new way, how they can train ugly, have fun and have more success.
