    Bounce (with Ben Simons)

    Bounce (with Ben Simons)

    We often think of explosiveness as just one quality, but the fastest sprinter isn't always the best bobsledder or long jumper. Explosiveness can be expressed in different ways. Olympic bobsledder Ben Simons is well known on social media for his jumping exploits. On this week's episode he talks about optimizing your plyometric training, the demands of bobsled training, and much more.

    271: Tackling and grappling (with Ollie Richardson)

    271: Tackling and grappling (with Ollie Richardson)

    Contact sports often look towards grappling sports for help in preparing athletes for contact. While there is much to be learned from grappling, there are also key differences as well. This is true when taking ideas from any sport to another, and a lesson Ollie Richardson learned first hand working in elite rugby and MMA. On this week's podcast he shares his system for contact preparation, how it came about, and how to best adapt ideas from other sports.

Tesboston ,

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!
