128: Ben Sporer on Output

In this episode, we’re joined by Ben Sporer, a Canadian sports physiologist whose recent work challenges traditional notions of success in high-performance sports. His book introduces the concept of focusing on ‘output’—the aspects of performance within our control—rather than ‘outcome,’ which is often subject to variables beyond our influence.

Throughout our conversation, Ben breaks down the components of output, including physiological indicators, performance metrics, and psychological states, and discusses their relevance to both athletes and coaches. He also offers insights into how these principles can be applied in broader contexts, such as personal growth and professional development.

Tune in for a thoughtful exploration of performance with Ben Sporer, where we discuss practical strategies for enhancing output and the implications of this approach for long-term success.
