This week I interview Coach Matt Shadeed of Arkansas State University, someone that I look up to very highly in the strength and conditioning community.
 
I met coach about a year and a half ago as I took a road trip to ASU, and within 48 hours of being there was blown away by his presence in the weight room and general knowledge of athletic development.  
 
He's a "culture guy."  He believes that the culture you create is the most important thing to success.  I couldn't agree more, and I think this applies to any team or group.  He talks about how he creates a strong culture with simple ideas like energy and consistency.
 
Physically, he places a premium on his athletes moving correctly. While they are always trying to get stronger, he puts an emphasis on what a lot of people would call correctives and he just calls Human Movements.  He talks about how to incorporate things like glute activation drills, dead bugs, etc. into a high paced training environment and how to do so in the most efficient way possible.
 
Finally, we talk a little about speed development and resources to learn more.
 
Here are the three guys he recommends you go and research on human movement and correctives:

Eric Cressey

 

Charlie Weingroff

 
 
And here are his suggestions for learning more about speed development:

Grab your notepad, because he speaks fast and drops a lot of knowledge.  Enjoy the show.
