Do you think it’s necessary to study kinesiology, sports science, nutrition or physical therapy to be a good coach?
I study an informal way anatomy and physiology by myself. It’s of course not the same and I don’t think I’m close to the level of knowledge of a graduate. Specially in biomechanics. I think thanks to you, Nick Gloff and other people I’m above of the average PT regarding weight training biomechanics. But average doesn’t mean good
I’m also extremely poor at chemistry since. I had chemistry courses in high school but my teacher’s were extremely bad, just to explain my point I’ll point out I had a different one each year because all of them from the first to the last one got fired.
I’m making career choices. I’m not certain I want to coach people but I know I enjoy giving advice to people who ask for it and would like to follow someone. I would even do it as a hobbie if I were to chose other career path.
Other more precise question. Do you think one can know the body (anatomically speaking of course)and it’s mechanics as well or close as you or other people at your level without having studied physical therapy, sports science or medicine?
Thank you Bryce. I hope you understand this is really important to me.
Right now in mi city (next to my family and grandparents that even though it’s personal I’ll mention I’d like to spend more time with them and not in another country). I have the possibility to study business management or the closest thing to anatomy and all of that would be medicine. Maybe psychology? I’m not sure how much they learn about that.
Do you think it’s worth it to study medicine to focus on this or on S&C? Or injury adaptation. Or do you think studying business management and taking some courses on physiology, anatomy and biomechanics I should be fine.
