Today's podcast features strength coach, Zach Even Esh. Zach is the founder of the Underground Strength Gym, and has been a leading figure in creative and adaptive strength training means. He is also the host of the Strong Life podcast and the creator of many educational resources in the realm of human strength and performance. As the world moves forward, the world of training has become an interesting place, accelerated by the changing club sport scene, technological advances, social media, and more. At the same time, the actual human being performing the training hasn't changed, and human beings have far more nuances to them than simply being based on the same concepts that a machine, such as a car, does. In many ways, human beings are being trained less and less like actual humans, and more as machines. Cones and ladders have replaced playing basketball or soccer. “Speed Training” has replaced running track, playing other sports, or racing friends on the playground. This isn't to say that our collective intelligence hasn't created a substantial leap forward in understanding training frameworks, but at the same time, increased intelligence doesn't automatically equal understanding how to create the richest possible environment for an athlete. On the show today, Zach speaks on the importance of imperfect, and chaotic elements in training. We talk about how these elements are not just important with respect to the chaos of sport, but also in the level of how we are meant to adapt to training in general as human beings. He talks on the power of a nature-based training system, his menu-based training days, as well as what we can learn from training that “breaks the rules” or would be thought to create “sub-optimal” adaptations. Finally, Zach hits on the important elements of community in the world of sport, and the modern plague of business that has enveloped the schedules of kids, as well as society in general.

This week's episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast sees Rob speaking to Micheál Cahill. Micheál has been in the US for a number of years while completing his PhD and working at Athlete Training and Health in Texas. Most practitioners will know him for his work in resisted speed training with youth populations which is the exact topic of today's discussion. In the first half of the discussion, Micheál outlines his philosophy when working with youth athletes and outlines the gaps in maturation and develop where we can really focus on speed development. He also outlines why you may use sled pushes versus sled pulls with youth athletes. In the second half of the conversation we focus solely on resisted sprint trainnig for all populations. How can we prescribe load and how can we understand what an athletes needs from resisted sprints? Finally Micheál tackles some of the misconceptions and common questions that come up around resisted sprints. If you want a deep dive into resisted sprints and getting youth players fast, this one is for you. Main talking points - Developing speed across the age groups Are there any periods of time when things can be pushed or need to be pulled back? Where sled pulls can be utilised? Where sled pushes can be utilised? Time on technical vs physical development How to assess to understand what is needed when prescribing resisted sprints? Methods to prescribe load? Sled pushing vs sled pulling - Reasons for using one over the other Common questions/misconceptions/gripes around resisted sprinting

Today's episode features Lee Taft. Lee is one of the most highly respected sport speed coaches in the world. His methods come from wisdom accumulated not just in sports performance, but also in physical education, sport coaching, as well as observing changes in athletes between the 1990s, into the modern day. Lee has been a three-time guest on the podcast, a mentor to many high-level coaches, and has incredible wisdom on the level of sport movement. In a world of specialists, athlete's processes of mastery can start to become “atomized” (my new favorite word). Many modern athletes have a sport coach, a skill coach, a strength coach and a speed coach. At the end of the day, an athlete only has so much time, and all training is only as effective as it can be integrated. Training effectiveness is also magnified by the level of which the athlete's learning process can be leveraged. Hand holding athletes through skill acquisition, or playing games on early levels to win, rather than to learn skills, create early ceilings of performance. What we need in the world of sport is an intuitive, interconnected model by which to better let flow the natural abilities of an athlete. To do so, having coaches like Lee who have experience in so many facets of movement, across a wide age group, multiple sports, and multiple decades is crucial. We need to understand movement and motor learning in sport if we are to truly understand speed in sport. On the podcast today, Lee details his process in terms of sport skills, constraints, and then when to step in and “connect the dots” on the level of external speed and strength development. Lee talks about his use of sport itself as “the screen” for athletes, developmental principles of sport skills, and assessing “hardware” vs. “software” limitations in athletic movement. He also detailed his own process of sport development with his own children, and finishes with an important discussion on how we can change the developmental sport system for the better through travel-ball alternatives. Lee is a sage in the world of sport, and we all can become better through his teaching. Today's episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, Lost Empire Herbs, and the Elastic Essentials online course.

Today's episode features Jamie Smith, founder and head sport preparation coach of The U of Strength. Jamie is a passionate coach and learner, who strives to help athletes incorporate the fullness of perceptual, social and emotional, elements in the course of training. Jamie has been a multi-time guest on this show, speaking on his approach to training that meets the demands of the game, and settling for nothing less. The further I get into my coaching journey, the more I understand and appreciate the massive importance of stimulating an athlete on the levels of their physiology, their emotions and social interactions, and their perception of their external environment. Coach Jay Schroeder had his term called the “PIPES”, referring to the importance of a training session being stimulating Physiologically, Intellectually, Psychologically, Emotionally and Spiritually”. I certainly agree with those terms, but they could also be re-ordered, as per today's conversation “Physiologically, Individually, Perceptually, Emotionally, and Socially”. (Individual referring to individual autonomy). On the show today, Jamie goes into how he “stacks” games, play, perception & reaction type work onto more traditional training methods, for greater “sticky-ness” to sport itself. Through today's conversation, he'll get into concepts of variability in training as it relates to sport, driving intention and learning through a training program, older vs. younger athlete response to game play with potentiation, and much more.

Timestamps and Main Points: 3:30 – How Jamie infuses “play” into basic exercises and warmup movements 21:50 – How infusing meaning into movement improves intention, immersion and movement quality 49:00 – The role of play in helping infuse natural variability in athletic development 33:38 – How the goal of play and variability changes through a training week 43:17 – Menu systems and autonomy within the scope of games and training sessions for athletes 49:39 – How Jamie's approach to “High CNS”, max velocity days and how layers of challenge are added on, as athletes grow and mature 1:02:53 – What gym work and warming up looks like for Jamie's athletes when those athletes are already playing their sport a lot outside of the weightroom (and how to help use social/emotional elements to create a more restorative stimulus) 1:15:34 – “Sticky-ness” of skill in training, created by blending “training” with gameplay “Play hits those missing pieces of the strength and conditioning model” “Game play can create athlete driven approaches to movement and strength and conditioning” “We teach them for the first few weeks, just so they have a general understanding, “what is a crawl”… but once it gets to the point where they understand what it is, lets layer on challenges” “A big thing with the gameplay, is we never repeat the same thing twice in a row” “I believe in exposing them to a wide range of situations so they can see what works, and what doesn't work” “It's all about intent, and when you add intent, it changes everything” “(With play) I'm talking about focused variability, having a purpose” “They are trying to solve a problem while getting pushed, shoved, knocked off balance; I call that kind of “sticky strength” qualities” “On the low CNS days I am looking at the gameplay, the emotional side of things, the social emotional side of things” “The social-emotional does have an immediate impact on (performance), it does influence the strength, the speed, the power qualities” “You're working with a 7th, 8th, 9th grader,
Speed is KING in golf. Don't get me wrong, short game (specifically putting) is imperative to great golf but you need distance too. For every extra MPH of swing speed you create with a driver equals 3 more yards of total distance. If you add 5-10 MPH to your driver swing in the offseason that 15 to 30 yards more distance. How much easier would every par 4 or 5 be if you were that much closer to the green? A longer drive means shorter approach shots and typically lower scores. Plus, who doesn't like to hit bombs! While working out can help your speed, I think speed training is much easier for the everyday golfer. In this episode, I'll take you through my off season speed training routine and the best ways for you to get started.

Today's episode features track and sport performance coach, Jeff Howser. Jeff has been coaching track and field since 1971, and was himself a 6x ACC champion, named as one of the ACC's top 50 track athletes of all time in 2003. Jeff was a sprints and hurdles coach at Florida, UCLA, NC State, Duke and UNC before his time as a speed and sports performance coach, back at Duke University. If you caught the classic episode on oscillatory strength training with Sheldon Dunlap you may have heard Sheldon mention Jeff as a source of his oscillatory rep training knowledge. In addition to a number of elite track and field competitors, Jeff also trained the top high school 40-yard dash runner in history, who ran a 4.25 second effort. In the world of speed training, many folks gravitate towards the “neat, packaged” training methods that are easy to understand and copy, such as sprint skip drills (A-skips, etc.). Unfortunately, these drills don't transfer to speed in nearly the capacity that we would hope for. As Jeff says “I've never seen anyone skip their way to being fast”. True speed is a little more complex, as it involves horizontal velocity and rotation, but is still, simple at its core given the self-organizing ability of the body. In his decades in track and field, Jeff has seen numerous pendulum shifts in how speed is coached, and has experienced a wide variety of training methods. As Jeff has said, we often go to clinics and seminars to be fed the same information with a different coat of paint. The “dark side” of the moon represents what we haven't seen in the world of performance, and this episode is an epitome of that. On today's show, Jeff goes into how sprint training has changed in the last 50 years, what he does, and doesn't find helpful in speed development, a variety of sprint and speed training constraints and self-governing drills, oscillatory lifting and power development principles, and much more. This show blends several important elements of biomechanics, strength and program philosophy that are impactful for any coach or athlete.

This week's guest on the Pacey Performance Podcast is National High School Strength Coach of the Year, John Garrish. He's the Director of Athletic Development & Performance and Head Track and Field Coach at North Broward Preparatory School in Coconut Creek, Florida. Following the receipt of his prestigious award from the NHSSCA, John is here to talk about coaching younger athletes at high school level, how he first broke into the industry, and some of his own tricks and tips for coaching speed with larger groups. First up, he explains how life works as a high school S&C coach, and how strength and conditioning fits in with the school curriculum in Florida. He moves on to his own strengths and weaknesses as a coach, and discusses how he overcomes any perceived flaws in his technique. On the same subject, John tells us how he coaches training sessions using minimal verbal communication, an area where many coaches may struggle to get instructions and messages across. This involves how to manage larger groups of athletes, as is the case for many high school coaches. John also gives us his expert insight into the drills and exercises he likes to use in larger groups, including the progressions and regressions to look out for when using banding and hopping. For all this and much more from an award-winning coach, hit the play button now.

This week's guest on the Pacey Performance Podcast is Dr. Peter Weyand, Professor of applied physiology and biomechanics at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Prior to his role at SMU, Peter directed research efforts at Harvard University's Concord Field Station, a large animal facility specialising in terrestrial locomotion, and the Locomotion Laboratory of Rice University. Peter is here to provide in-depth analysis into how to improve speed, including the common methods that can be used and his opinion on the speed training boom on social media and beyond. In that same vein, Peter talks about why academics need to be more critical of the information available and not take it as gospel. There's also discussion into training techniques, such as the outcomes to look out for in resistance speed training and how to transfer gym-based training to the track. Rob also asks Peter about the possible misinterpretation between the influence of strength on top speed, and the influence of Mach drills and their desired outcomes. Finally, Peter reveals the questions that people often ask him, including about force velocity profiling, focussing on power, and the ultimate question; “how do I get faster?”.

One of the most incredible stories you will ever hear in professional sports, this is the full story (so far) of Wynton's Bernard's against-all-odds, faith-filled journey through baseball. It starts with Bernard hardly having any college baseball opportunities, transferring twice, being a 35th round pick as a senior and being released after only two part-time years of pro ball. It continues with his unlikely free-agent signing with a new team followed by his stunning emergence into baseball relevance. Now playing in AAA for the Colorado Rockies, Bernard is on the precipice of getting his first MLB call-up at age 31, and it couldn't happen to be a better man with a brighter smile. You wouldn't believe his story if you didn't hear it from his mouth, so take a listen as Wynton Bernard tells his story like no one else could!
