Episode 44: A Conversation with Curling Canada’s Strength Coach Kyle Turcotte 500 500 Stephanie Thompson
In today’s episode I am joined by Kyle Turcotte who shares his learnings from working with Canada’s top athletes; with both Olympic and Paralympic dreams.   We touch on the importance of setting realistic goals, ensuring you’re moving really well and training all year round.   Reminder that the 4th annual Holiday Reset starts Dec 27, 2022 & the goal setting party is happening Jan 4th 2023. Sign up for both in the show notes.   Key points
  • Plan for your entire year of training, not just the off-ice season
  • Aim to build resiliency in your body; to ensure longevity in the sport
  • Push performance -can’t do this if you’re injured; focused training programs are important for preventing and managing injuries.
  • “The #1 detriment to performance is injury”
  • Use training to assist in technique development
