    Throwing insights (with Don Babbitt)

    Throwing insights (with Don Babbitt)

    It's been a hell of a year so far in the world of throwing: a world recrod, historic marks, and much more just in the spring. Coach Don Babbitt joins us on this week's podcast as we look ahead to the US Olympic Trials and then the Paris Olympics. We take a look at insights that can be gained from the biomechanics of Mykolos Alekna, the development of Ethan Katzberg, the comeback of Kara Winger, and much more.

    Individualizing training (with Paul Solberg)

    Individualizing training (with Paul Solberg)

    A lot of coaches like to talk about building individualized training plans, but more often that not their athlete's programs start looking all the same. Paul Solberg is a bit different. He's coaching some of the world's top throwers, and they take very different approaches to reach the same goal. He joins us on this week's podcast to share his process for understanding athletes, tailoring training plan, training intensities, building training blocks, and much more.

Solberg's former coach Asmund Martinsen was our guest on HMMR Podcast 268. Solberg is of course highly influenced by his background in the javelin throw and we've looked at the javlin throw in more detail on GAINcast 156 with Steve Backley and GAINcast 175 with javelin coach Mike Barber. More classical approaches to block periodization were discussed on Episode 28 with Tony Ciarelli. In the HMMR Classroom we've also touched on Bondarchuk's training philosophy in Video Lesson 1, periodization and planning trends in Video Lesson 3, specific strength for throwing in Video Lesson 9, and many other topics covered in this episode.

    How the coaches train

    How the coaches train

    We often talk on the show about how coaches train their athletes. On this week's podcast we turn the tables and look at how coaches train themselves. Finding time to squeeze a workout in is not always easy, and neither is balancing age, family, and many other factors. Our friends Carissa Sain, David Maris, and Donie Fox join us to share their tips.

    Jump around (with Jeremy Fischer)

    Jump around (with Jeremy Fischer)

    At first glance, throwers and jumpers might seem like they live on opposite ends of the athletic spectrum, but they have more in common than you might think. Both even groups require athletes to produce immense amount of power in short bursts, focus on highly technical and specific training, and be patient over years of development. On this week's podcast world-class jumps coach Jeremy Fischer looks at some of the parallels between the event groups and their training.

    Throwing smarter (with Brian Bedard)

    Throwing smarter (with Brian Bedard)

    Success in the throws often comes down to being smarter. Smart enough to master the fundamentals of technique. Smart enough to understand and communicate with athletes. And smart enough to put everything together. On this week's podcast Colorado State coach Brian Bedard shares his approach to coaching smarter, including his lessons on leadership, communication, and technique.

Episode 206 Gravity

Really great episode exploring an unfamiliar sport (to me). Guest was great and the alternate sport really made me listen for commonality.

Dabutae ,

Very Informative

The guest did a good job of explaining the methods he uses to construct his programs. Also, what was the book he referenced about the 3 zones?

ThrowfarAZ ,

A great show

Martin and Nick do such a great job. The content and guests are fantastic! Some of the greatest throwing minds out there!
