Anaerobic Speed Reserve with Dr. Gareth Sandford ALTIS World

    • Sports

The latest ALTIS Podcast features Dr. Gareth Sandford and is hosted by Strength & Power Coach, Jason Hettler. 
 
Gareth (along with Jason) was a member of our first Intern group in the Spring of 2014. Following his internship Gareth joined Athletics New Zealand as a Performance Physiologist and completed his PhD with Auckland University of Technology.
 
He is currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher and Performance Physiologist with the University of British Colombia and the Canadian Sport Institute - Pacific. 
 
In this conversation Gareth and Jason cover many topics centered around Gareth’s PhD dissertation, Applications of Anaerobic Speed Reserve to Elite 800m Running. From a ‘big picture’ perspective they cover topics such as asking the right questions and defining the relevant terminology. They then zoom-in on determinants of performance, categorizing athletes, and more.
 
The final third of the conversation centers around the application of Gareth’s work beyond the 800m, particularly into team sport.
