EP38: An Ecological Journey with Drew Dunlop and Jake Grossmann
In this episode, Alex interviews Drew Dunlop and Jake Grossmann. They discuss their decision to break away from traditional player development methods and embrace a constraint-led approach (CLA) in basketball training. They share their journey of discovering the ecological approach and how it has transformed their training sessions. The conversation delves into the challenges coaches face when transitioning to a CLA and the importance of individualizing constraints to target each player's rate limiter. Drew and Jake also provide practical examples of constraint manipulations they use in their training sessions, including activities focused on the connector role and adaptive shooting.
