A few weeks ago I did a podcast interview for Coach Al Lyman, owner of Pursuit Athletic Performance and we had an outstanding talk about the fundamental importance of becoming a strong, mobile, and stable athlete in order to reach one’s full performance potential in sports as diverse as running, triathlon, and mountain biking. This podcast is loaded with information and inspiration for ALL athletes, no matter your sport. Coach Al and I give you the no-nonsense truth about what it takes to excel to the best of your personal ability. A few of the topics we touch on are:
– Why functional strength matters greatly in activities normally viewed as endurance sports
-Training the miles is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of unleashing ultimate performance
-Why “just train more” is just plain wrong
-Why “strength training” is a misnomer, and what it really is
-How training outside of your sport manifests itself in your sport
-Training as a lifetime endeavor — longevity vs. short-term gains
