“I was so science oriented that there had to be a reason for everything, but come to realize that kids wanted things to get them to buy in, to buy into those reasons I was doing certain things.”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 78th episode of Outside The Rack brought to you by Kinetic Performance the makers of Gymaware. In this show we are going to try to dive a little deeper into the minds of the top practitioners in the world of sport performance to learn a bit more about who they actually are and how they got to where they are at today. Today we are joined by Vanderbilt University’s Baseball Strength and Conditioning Coach, Chris Ham. Chris, thanks for being with us today.
Before we start, who is Chris Ham?
I’m a father, a husband, a dog lover, a wannabe grill master, former JUCO baseball player
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career?
The buy in that someone has for something, and the impact that that has going forward is what matters.
2) If you could ask one question and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
How am I going to be perceived as a dad?
3) What’s your escape?
Daily by being present with your breath, being where your feet are at, weekly getting my hair cut, monthly read something outside the field, yearly go to Asheville.
