High Performance! It is THE sexy term in our profession today.  Colorado’s Adam Ringler shares with us every aspect of the program he has designed.  This voyage started at Wichita State and has followed him out to Boulder.

First things first, and that is a definition of “High Performance”. Adam gives us his precise definition, and then dissects that definition to break down what the key variable are, where they come from, and why each are important. This definition comes directly from the people who have inspired him, but there is one person who has impacted him the most.  That person is Google X’s Captain of Moonshots, Astro Teller.  Astro’s idea of 10xing what you do is what has driving Adam to have internal evaluations to his own high-performance program, and driven him to find ways to push the envelope to a greater extent in attempt to 10x performance.  This is based on Teller’s quote “When you’re trying to go 10x better versus 10% better, it’s typically not 100x hard, but the reward is often 100x great.” This brings us directly into how he sees a High-Performance department, what the team is made of, how he evaluated himself, and what his 10x’s are for each.

Adam’s architecture of a high-performance program contains 8 pieces:

  • Recovery
  • Tactical
  • Physical
  • Psychology
  • Technology
  • Nutrition
  • Lifestyle
  • Medical

For each of these pieces he provides how he has set up a grading scheme that he uses, and provides us with how he grades the programs he has worked with, how they are moving forward to improve their “score”, and some examples of how to 10x each of the pieces to the rubric.

This break down is the most in depth break down I have ever seen in a High-Performance program.  Most people talk about stuff, but Adam drops in with examples ranging from weekly workloads and their evaluations, to what they were doing well in each aspect and where they need to improve. This open self-evaluation of his own program, breakdown of where improvements can come from and how to make those improvements, along with the real world examples of how the viewer can 10x each of these parts of the program make presentation an absolute home run, and one that I’m sure you’re going to take points home for how you can improve as a coach.
