    Ep 49- Strength Training for Performance: Be a Contrarian

    Ep 49- Strength Training for Performance: Be a Contrarian

    Today, many cycling and triathlon coaches are writing "strength training programs" for their athletes. While there are good intensions behind this, we're going to briefly cover why they should NOT be doing this, why attaining a certification is only the start of your journey as a coach, and how you can learn a lot from the current stock market (6/2020) as to how trends and "what's hot" right now can lead you or your athlete to pain and suffering, NOT performance.

    Today's episode, we talk about why these mistakes are made instead of being corrected, and how YOU can completely transform your abilities as an athlete and coach, by swimming against the current.

    Ep 48- Leandro Sgallari- Blending the art of coaching with the science

    Ep 48- Leandro Sgallari- Blending the art of coaching with the science

    Leandro Sgallari is a triathlon coach based out of Buenos Aires, Argentina and is a graduate of the Strength Training for Cyclists Certification course. Leandro was not always an endurance athlete, and in fact comes from a background of Rugby. 
    Leandro's coaching practice is incredibly special, as he does deep dives into data, but ALSO puts a huge emphasis on mindfulness and awareness. We'll hear how Leandro works to balance these two things for each individual athlete to help them find the right blend of art & science, for them, their needs, and their results.

    Ep 47- What is true "Core training" for cyclists & triathletes, and how to do it

    Ep 47- What is true "Core training" for cyclists & triathletes, and how to do it

    As the riding season waxes, many cyclists & triathletes (and their coaches) either cut out their strength training completely- less some "core".....but what IS true core training?
    This week we get into why many make the mistake of focusing on the abs, and how you can get far more out of your core training than just super long planking abilities.

    We cover:
    - 6 exercises to get started with TRUE core strength   
    - Why they're each important.  
    - 2 quick and easy at-home tests you can do
    - A simple (but not easy) change you can make for some of your movements to help them have a greater training value

    Ep 45 Stacey McMickens- Building Deeper Connections to Build Your Studio

    Starting a business can be really daunting. Starting a fitness studio can be petrifying, with keeping it going proving to be incredibly hard. But while many fitness businesses may try to compete on price, with the goal to get so many "visits" a month to balance their balance sheets, there are some out there who are doing it differently.
    Stacey McMickens  is a Triathlon coach, Cycling coach, and Fitness professional who has been a fitness professional since 1993. Stacy runs S3 Training in Alexandria, LA, out of her fitness studio FIXX Cycling. Since day 1 she has made a purposeful decision to keep her class sizes small, and to build deeper, more meaningful relationships. On todays episode we talk how she's built her studio to help a wide array of folks get fitter, as well as to compete at the national level. We'll also talk about how she has taken the opportunity CORONA presented to continue to build and strengthen those relationships.

    Ep 44- Should you Assign TSS for Strength Sessions? AND Process Oriented Fitness

    Ep 44- Should you Assign TSS for Strength Sessions? AND Process Oriented Fitness

    This week we dive into 2 topics that are inter-related, yet one is not talked about enough...in my opinion.

    Process oriented fitness goals, and goals in general, are one of the secrets to becoming a top performer in any field. So why is it that we are so focused on EVENT goals: Lose 5 pounds, Gain 20 watts, shave 2 minutes off your 40k TT....yes, we have to measure our progress, but what it learning how to be better than the last workout and focusing on that, will help you get better results?



    TSS and strength training has been a topic that has been brought up a number of times over the last few months. While we do need to think about Training Stress,  WHAT you're doing in your strength training will have a big impact on if/when/how we would use TSS.



    Lastly, For the next 24 hours the Strength Training for Cyclists Certification is open. This is a super short opening, to allow those coaches and athletes who are looking to get more out of their time at home, and their strength training. After today the course will close until Fall 2020.

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.
