    When the discussion turns to training for muscle growth, we have assembled three men that can speak on the subject with authority: Ben Pakulski (top-ranked IFBB Pro bodybuilder), training and nutrition expert John "Mountain Dog" Meadows, and elitefts™ owner Dave Tate. This is one of the best discussions on the topic of building muscle and training in general.

    Elitefts Sport Performance Podcast Episode 5: Todd Hamer Interview

    Interview with Todd Hamer
    Head Strength and Conditioning Coach
    Robert Morris University
    There are coaches in our field who have made tremendous sacrifices to help their athletes and their assistants to improve in every aspect of their lives.  Todd Hamer not only understands the importance of developing and mentoring student-athletes from a physical standpoint; but takes pride in facilitating them to make a positive impact in all facets of their maturing process.

    Todd Hamer is a friend and mentor who is continually combining a global life-long learning process with real world experiences which have made him one of the wisest strength & conditioning coaches in our field.  His track record of weight-room management, long-term development of athletes, and the holistic preparation of assistant coaches is second to none.

    I have invited Coach Hamer to speak at the Central Ohio Strength & Conditioning Clinic on three separate occasions and have watched him coach at Robert Morris University and at the Elitefts™ Learn to Train seminars.  There has not been an interaction with Todd that I have not learned something about coaching athletes, mentoring people, and bettering myself.

    This is an interview we did together at the Learn to Train 7 Seminar in November of 2013.

    Elitefts Sports Performance Podcast Episode 4: Cam Davidson

    Interview with Cam Davidson
    Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach
    Penn State University
    There aren't many strength & conditioning coaches that get the opportunity to work with national championship teams or athletes. Cam Davidson has been a part of them in three different sports. Davidson, who is an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Nittany Lions' Olympic Sports has worked with men's ice hockey, track and field, the four-time national champion women's volleyball team, and the three time national champion wrestling team among others.  Davidson also trains three time national champion and Olympic hopeful shot-putter, Ryan Whiting.

    I had the privilege of witnessing Cam's wisdom and his passion for strength and conditioning during his presentations, hands-on coaching, and his own training. He spoke at the Central Ohio Strength and Conditioning Clinic in May of 2012 on Max Effort training for female athletes where he displayed incredible knowledge of the scientific foundations and the practical application of his training modalities. Cam has the uncanny ability to communicate complex training methodologies in a very clear and enthusiastic manner. This summer, while training at The Columbus Weightlifting Club, Cam visited the S4 compound and coached me through the Olympic lifts.  He was also the key contributor on Olympic Lifting for Athletes: Using Static Holds to Improve Technique article here at elitefts.com.

    Cam Davidson is a friend and mentor and an outstanding strength and conditioning coach.  It was a pleasure to do this interview.

    Elitefts Sports Performance Posdact Episode 3: Tom Palumbo

    Interview with Tom Palumbo, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Flagler College
    I first met Tom Palumbo in 2006 when he visited The United States Military Academy at West Point. I was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Army and Tom was the Associate Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at The Ohio State University, a position he held until the Spring of 2012. As the Director of Strength and Conditioning at Denison University, I had decided to intern for Tom at Ohio State in the summer of 2007. Tom's passion for getting his athletes better, his diligence and practical application of anecdotal research, his tenacious work ethic, and his unwavering integrity has made him one of the most respected coaches at the collegiate setting.

    Tom has used his experiences from the University of Georgia, The Pittsburgh Pirates and The Ohio State University to organize and institute Flagler College's first ever strength and conditioning program. In this interview from the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Conference in Kansas City, Missouri last May; Tom and I discuss is journey and transition through the coaching field as he goes into detail about programming, internships, and frustrations in the industry.

    I have witnessed firsthand, Tom Palumbo coaching in the weight room, mentoring interns, and presenting at conferences. I asked Coach Palumbo to present at three consecutive Central Ohio Strength and Conditioning Clinics as well as many other regional and national conferences. As an internship coordinator, I would schedule multiple professional development trips each year. These were integral to the learning process for our student coaches. One of those trips was always to elitefts. The other was to the Ohio State University to visit with Tom.

    Here is a list of the topics covered in this interview:


    The career path
    The Challenges of starting a program from scratch
    Transitioning to a smaller school
    Using accommodating resistance
    Both sides of internships
    Off-season programming
    The stressors of the profession
    Dealing with sport coaches

    Elitefts™ Sports Perfromance Podcast Epidode 2: Interview with Chad Scott, Tim Kontos, and Jon-Michael Davis

    Elitefts™ Sports Perfromance Podcast Epidode 2: Interview with Chad Scott, Tim Kontos, and Jon-Michael Davis

    I had the opportunity to sit down with three strength & conditioning coaches that I have the utmost respect for.  Not only are these three gentlemen outstanding coaches, but they have been friends and mentors to me.

    I was introduced to Tim Kontos a bunch of years back through elitefts™ columnist Todd Hamer.  Tim is one of the most respected strength coaches in the industry and his work ethic, practical knowledge, and unwavering integrity are unparalleled.

    I have known Chad Scott since the Spring of 2010 when they came to Denison University for a USA Weightlifting Certification and met Jon-Michael Davis a few months after.  In the summer of 2011, I brought my interns on a professional development trip to Elitefts and to Eastern Kentucky University.  At the time, Chad Scott was still an assistant at EKU and he, Coach Davis, myself, and all of my interns spent the day talking shop.  It was an invaluable learning experience for my guys as we talked about real-life coaching issues with brutal honesty.  We also had a chance to poke fun at every stereo-typical coach, athlete, and NARP until I laughed so hard my face hurt.  Chad and Jon-Michael are great men and role models for young coaches.

    We all sat down in the lobby of the hotel during the Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coaches Association National Conference in Kansas City Missouri in May. We talked about how each of them go their start in the field, advise for young strength & conditioning coaches trying to break into the profession, and the biggest challenges of being a strength & conditioning coach.
