We are less than a week from the start of the Olympics. But rather than talking about the athletes, the main story continues to be doping. More specifically, the topic is the failure of the current anti-doping systems. On this week's podcast we bring on guest Pierre-Jean Vazel. As both a journalist and elite sprinting coach, Vazel has a unique perspective on the topic. We discuss how we got into this current mess, issues with the current system, and what hope we have for moving past these mistakes. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/08/hmmr-podcast-episode-61-anti-doping-with-pierre-jean-vazel/

Nick is easily irritated, and sometimes he needs to let off some of that steam. On this episode we dive into a few of Nick's most recent rants and pet peeves, including his thoughts on theory vs. practice, the ethics of working with another coach's athlete, how we should select competitors for international championships, and just how difficult a world record really is. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/07/hmmr-podcast-episode-60-nick-rants/

In an era when coaches are searching out more and more objective data to evaluate training, master coach Dan Pfaff has been using more and more subjective data to assist him. Subjectivity has been given a bad reputation lately, but it offers many advantages to coaches: it is cheap, it is easy to implement, it saves time, and can often times be more accurate. On this episode of the podcast Pfaff joins us to discuss the role subjective feedback plays in his training. Plus, for track fans, we discuss some of the failure of the Diamond League's new rules for field event athletes. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/07/hmmr-podcast-episode-59-subjective-feedback-with-dan-pfaff/

Every training sessions starts with a warm up. We often focus our attention on the next parts of training, but hidden in the warm up are some of the most important aspects of training. It is a chance to set the tone of the session. It is a chance to do a substantial amount of work. It is a chance to develop robust athletes. It is a chance to assess your athletes. And so much more, including a chance to warm up. On this week's podcast we talk about all things warm up. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/07/hmmr-podcast-episode-58-warming-up/

Developing high-level performance is not an easy thing. There's a hugely complex mess of factors and science has taken a simplistic approach that, in the end, does not always provide us with the answers we need and we are left to fill in the gap ourselves. In light of our upcoming seminar with John Kiely, on this episode we sit down with Kiely to discuss one of the topics he will be presenting on: what are the mental biases we confront when trying to fill the gaps. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/05/hmmr-podcast-episode-48-mental-biases-with-john-kiely/

When John Godina was a shot putter, he was THE man in the sport. His technique was smooth as silk and he simply did not lose. After setting the still standing NCAA record, winning four world titles and two Olympic medals, Godina finally hung up his shoes in 2008, but that was not his end in the sport. He since founded Altis, which he now runs as CEO. Altis has grown as a training center with more than 100 elite track and field athletes and a coaching center featuring a growing education program. On this episode of the podcast he joins us to discuss some of the lessons he has learned from his career of chasing excellence in every pursuit. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/04/hmmr-podcast-episode-46-chasing-excellence-with-john-godina/

With immigration being a hot topic in this US presidential campaign season, we thought we would take a look at foreign athletes and how they should fit into the American collegiate system.

In the beginning, there was Glenn McAtee. McAtee's name is referenced on nearly every episode on the podcast for a good reason: he has been the major influence in Nick's career and the force that connected Nick and Martin. The former Clemson and Cal State Northridge coach put together a great system to turn overlooked recruits into all-Americans. We ask him about how he set up that program, how he became on of the first coaches in the west to study Bondarchuk's methods, and what he has learned working back at the youth level in recent years. For more on this topic, check out our complete show notes at: http://www.hmmrmedia.com/2016/03/hmmr-podcast-episode-43-with-glenn-mcatee/
