Skin In The Game | Daniel Severin Petersen
In this episode I sit down with my friend and fellow coach Daniel Severin Petersen to talk about his journey from working a job that had him feeling incomplete to traveling the world teaching seminars, coaching recording artist Lukas Graham, and becoming the Director of Training for Freestyle.
The million-dollar question we ask at these facilities has become, “Why do we move the way we do, and are these movements ‘correct’?” Why are we doing what we’re doing? Is it to get ourselves to improve a movement for the sake of it, or is that movement a stage of a larger progression?
Without an understanding of the concept of skill transfer, we can’t maximize training the basic movement patterns for the purpose of athleticism. The physiological adaptations are important, but the movement patterns are king! Freestyle is connected by skill, applied through skill transfer, and expressed as athleticism.
The Run Experience
After having to back out of competing at the Ironman World Championships in Kona due to a nagging hamstring injury and not getting a clear answer from my doctors and physical therapists, through strength and conditioning I healed, relearned what it meant to be an athlete, and came back stronger than ever before.
Movement Strength and Skill
How strong do you need to be to squat 500 pounds? We could study this movement and talk about contractile forces at muscular level, but we can also simply say, “Strong enough to squat 500 pounds.
Train, Win, Smile, Repeat
Seeing how all the athletes and coaches that are part of the sport and the CrossFit community have contributed to the growth inspires me every day to continue to push forward and help define how future generations will experience this approach to fitness and lifestyle.
