    Ep 147 It. Takes. Time. - Why Strength Training Gains Cannot Be Rushed

    Ep 147 It. Takes. Time. - Why Strength Training Gains Cannot Be Rushed

    Why do endurance athletes rush into heavy lifting? Well, much of it has to do with our misunderstanding of how strength training works, and the processes that need to happen for us to safely and effectively lift heavy stuff. This weeks episode will help you have a better understanding of why we should ramp into heavier weights, as well as why your energy system trainings (intervals), seem to have a much faster time to improvement (because they do!).

    Minisode: The Stronger After 50 Strength Training System

    Minisode: The Stronger After 50 Strength Training System

    There have been a number of questions about the Stronger After 50 strength training system: Why a strength program for those over 50? What's the difference between this and any other strength program? And why a "system", instead of just a 12 week program? We answer these, and more, on this Mini-sode! https://www.trainingpeaks.com/my-training-plans/Stronger-After-50

    Ep 146- Kriss Hendy of Strength for Endurance: Strength Training to Harness Your Potential

    Ep 146- Kriss Hendy of Strength for Endurance: Strength Training to Harness Your Potential

    When it comes to building top performances (regardless of whether you're a pro or a "recreational" endurance athlete), there are a lot of considerations that go far beyond your primary sport, and training "for sports results".  Kriss Hendy of Strength for Endurance and I sat down and talked how endurance athletes can get a lot more out of their training, not just through strength training, but by having a better understanding of you, as a whole. 

    We cover:


    Why you cannot just do a "lower body + core" workout...Gotta train the whole
    High performance begins with learning, and mastering, the basics
    You cannot out train poor tissues and postures
    The importance of learning how to land (before you hit those box jumps)
    Global health keys to pay attention to

    and much, much more.

    Ep 145- Does Squatting Make You More Quad Dominant? Do Deadlifts Activate The Posterior Chain?

    Ep 145- Does Squatting Make You More Quad Dominant? Do Deadlifts Activate The Posterior Chain?

    Back in October, Vern C. replied to an email I sent out to the HVTraining Newsletter with a great question: Does Squatting Make You More Quad Dominant? Should he instead do deadlifts to activate his posterior chain?

    This weeks episode, as promised, I give Vern, and you, a deeper dive into this question, helping you understand why these aren't quite the questions we should be asking...

    Social media can be a very tricky world...so what's an athlete and coach to do? We sat down to talk about maneuvering through the social media sea, and how to be a better coach and advocate to your athletes and clients, with Andrew Coates. Andrew has been one of the positive and upbeat lights in fitness social media the last few years, gaining "overnight success" since the pandemic. Eloquent, well spoken, and always looking for the good in things, Andrew shares with us some of his perspectives on building a thriving coaching practice, and how to help you clients get the best results possible... sometimes, by connecting them with another coach or professional who can serve them better for that realm- and why BOTH of you will win big.

    143- Zoe Backstedt, Chris Peden & Magnus Backstedt on Strength Training & Performance Development

    If you haven't heard of Zoe Backstedt yet, you may not be much into the juniors levels of racing. But I really hope that todays episode with MULTI-DISCIPLINE and Multi-World Champion Zoe, and her performance team, will help you understand the massive wave of changes to how training is done for performance in cycling are happening.... and it's all coming as a trickle-up from the juniors. Thanks in large part to forward thinking coaches and parents, who, instead of relying on "research to tell them what works", would rather look for inspiration and ideas from other sports and realms of performance, to identify trends that are working.

    In this weeks episode, forward looking folks are Strength Coach Chris Peden and Magnus Backstedt, who have sought out far better ways to help Zoe attain her "best self", through practicing a variety of sports, utilizing consistent strength training (not how everyone thinks or does it), and allowing Zoe to focus on the overall goal of ENJOYMENT of the process, not just results.

    This interview is such a breath of fresh air in todays world of "research based practices" and "technology driving performance", as rather than taking a reductionist point of view, Zoe, Chris, and Magnus look for things that will help keep it fun, stay on track of the overall performance goals, all while allowing Zoe to be her best self, and have quite a bit of fun while doing so!

Learning strength and philosophy

I am enjoying the insight Coach Brodie and his guests have about training and the philosophical angle brought to it. I’m a process and analysis of the big picture person when it comes to my training and this right up my alley.

Thanks!

Really enjoying the podcast. Weight training is my new focus for 2020 and I’m learning all kinds of good things to fix my posture and hopefully make me faster

Menachem Strong and Savvy Podcast

I became aware of Menachem through an article on strength training he wrote for a cycling media outlet. He seemed to be espousing the virtues of heavy strength training for cyclists (in a specific way - not general) which pushed back on many myths and traditions that have permeated endurance sports. I just started listening to some of his podcasts. The material is good; he can get redundant , but that is a small constructive criticism. There seems to be far more coaches than athletes these days. The onus is on the athlete to differentiate the good from the bad. Menachem seems authentic about his passion to help people and this quality to me is of the highest importance. My biggest pet peeve which coaches is that a large number of them criticize what other coaches are doing whether they are right or not. An authentic coach should be confident in her/his approach without the need to weigh in on what others are doing. Also, and lastly, when a coach thinks they know everything about their field - run away. Menachem encompasses (at least from the periphery) many excellent qualities of an authentic coach.
