115 - Josh Pelland and Zac Robinson on philosophy of training
Josh and Zac from DataDrivenStrength join the boys to talk about the philosophy of training. How can we know what works? What factors contribute to a lifter's success that we might pay less attention to? Do people with different goals or those operating under different paradigms look for different data when assessing their lifters?
114 - Matt Domney on Specificity and Variability
Matt Domney joins the boys to talk about the continuum between specificity and variability, the role of movement variability, and what constitutes variability in exercise prescription and performance. We discuss considerations in directed adaptation, longevity, optimising performance, and much more. Alex gets dissed hard by Matt.
113 - Jamie Bouziotis on cardio for strength trainees
Jamie joins the boys to talk about the dreaded C-word. What role does our cardiovascular system play in powerlifting training, performance, and maintaining our health? How can we implement cardio in our training? Is the interference effect a big deal? Is just doing more reps enough? All this, and more.
112 - Matt Bartholomew on creating a coaching system
Matt joins the boys to talk about his coaching systems, how he has come to think the way that he does, and how we can reconcile the differences between various approaches. We discuss when RPE and %-based programs might be more useful, and where we can meld the two, how athlete psychology can alter training prescriptions, how replicable and predictable athlete responses can be, and the role of coaching beyond just writing training plans.
111 - Arian Khamesi on his coaching journey
Arian joins the boys to talk about his journey from novice powerlifter to USAPL national team coach. We talk about his early days training with Dr Mike Zourdos, his presence on the bodybuilding.com forums and what it did for him as a coach, the programs he has run and modified, and how these experiences coalesced in his current coaching practices, and what it is like to do the job that he does.
110 - Audience Requests
The boys go through their audience request form to answer questions, ranging from biomechanical considerations when deadlifting, through managing volume during cutting phases, powerlifting politics, and the use or lack thereof of specific exercises.
