|Description||In episode 22 of his podcast, Steve Ingham discusses the fascinating concept of stress - adaptation with Jamie Pringle, Rosie Mayes. They explore what a stimulus is and does and the factors that determine the effectiveness of a stimulus. They discuss the experiences and environments that mitigate any adaptive responses, exploring the concepts of individualisation and group responses from a physical and cognitive performance perspective and then broaden that application to work and business and the very concept of progression, the achievement of mastery. Show Notes: 4:00 - An introduction to Hans Selye's seminal work on the systemic hormonal responses to stress and how the human body and mind responds under duress; 6:40 - Positive and negative stressors and responses. No pain no gain…pushing into an area of discomfort or pain to allow development and adaptation; 8:10 - Dr Mary Neville sprint adaptation and 12 leg biopsies!; 12:30 - Stress adaptations are complex to interpret. Adaptations occur as a result of a variety of interacting dynamics across our individual experiences; 14:30 - Do we adapt and improve without some form of stressor?; 16:00 - Fight or flight response, Walter Cannon; 16:27 - Does it always have to be a stressor? Appreciative enquiry, the reinforcement of the positives; 18:00 - Minimum effective dosing. What are the core pieces in your training that are giving you 80-90% of your adaptation both physically and mentally?; 21:05- The subjective experience of enduring a stressor. Knowing yourself, others and the concept of time throughout the stress adaptation and recovery process; 25:00 - The role of the coach and scientist enabling the athlete to know what is going on in their mind and body in a way that is helpful for them. Coach - Athlete relationship key; 27:05 - Carol Dweck's, growth vs fixed mindsets and the stubbornness of self-efficacy; 28:50 - Knowing your capabilities, boundaries and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone; 32:40 - Variety is key in developing an adaptation. Monotony and familiarity can prevent or slow adaptation. Explore and find your own method; 34:15- Fail fast and learn quick. An environment to allow failure and learning important for creativity and innovation in sport and business; 35:23 - Ability to perform under pressurised conditions develops and acclimatises your skillset, resulting in increased skill development; 38:48 - No one's fitter at the end of a marathon! Failure and suppression of the system from which adaptation occurs; 41:45 - Learning and the state of flow. Being immersed, focused and recovery. Immersion, incubation and inspiration; 43:15 - Discussion on the mind-body relationship and the role of feedback in adaptation, self-regulation and performance; 47:26 - The business world is great at stressing but less so at recovering; 47:57 - Moving the body can move the brain. Shifting from an idle physical and mental state into an active physical state can alter brain functioning (Forgetting and doorway research, https://link.springer.com/content/pdf...); 50:40 - Becoming self-aware, understanding ourselves and how we operate in the world in order to create environments in which we can test, adapt and develop; 51:51 - Put yourself in the shoes of the athlete as an applied sport scientist. Empathy, trust, credibility and an understanding of their sport crucial; 55:41 - Striving for meaning and mastery in personal and professional pursuits; 58:02 - As Yoda would preach - "we have to work intentionally with courage, effort, patience, persistence and reflection in order to fail, adapt and grow"|
