Episode 228: Cal Dietz and Chris Korfist on RPR, injury, foot training, and periodization

This episodes sees the return of Chris Korfist and Cal Dietz.

The guys were previously on the episode 215 along with JL Holdsworth to discuss RPR.

Unlike most facilities who are staffed by young coaches who rely on their recent playing career and “cool” factor, Slow Guy Speed School is staffed by Chris Korfist, a “sprint guru” with an international following.

With over 55 all-state sprinters and countless other high school all-state athletes, and over 20 years experience, he knows what is appropriate for the athlete in the room and not so concerned about what the pros are doing or someone else journey to where they got.

In fact, the methods have been so effective, Chris has consulted NFL teams, Big 10 Universities, Olympic team and U.S. Special Forces.

Cal Dietz has been an Olympic Sport Strength and Conditioning coach for numerous sports at the University of Minnesota since 2000. During his tenure, Dietz has trained athletes that have achieved 400+ All-American honors, Teams that have won 33 Big Ten/WCHA championships teams and 10 NCAA Team Champions. He has consulted with Olympic and World Champions in various sports and professional athletes in the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB, MMA and Professional Boxing.

On this episode guys and I discuss:

  • I ask the guys what kind of response they have gotten from individuals who have taken and implemented RPR into their training system
  • Where does RPR fit into the guys program design
  • I ask the guys have they any data on the efficacy of RPR and performance measures 
  • Why non contact injuries are prevalent in many sports
  • We discuss foot training 
  • Cal shares with us some thoughts on individualizing periodization schemes 
  • We discuss false assumptions and misconceptions about Triphasic training

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Episode 226: Brandon Marcello - The life of a high performance sports consultant

This episodes guest is Brandon Marcello

With over 20-years experience in the performance enhancement industry, Brandon Marcello, PhD brings innovation, education, and proven application to the worlds of sports performance, health, fitness, and wellness.

Originally from Sarasota, FL, Marcello has worked in the professional, Olympic and top collegiate settings. He has also served as a consultant to various organizations and media groups.

Having extensive involvement in both the applied and research worlds, he has implemented successful, high-performance training programs for professional, Olympic and collegiate athletes.

For the last 22 years, Dr. Marcello has taken individuals and organizations to the next level through multi-year and time-limited human performance consulting projects in the United States and abroad. His work in conjunction with Draper Laboratories for the U.S. Special Forces has provided a deep, multivariate understanding of the drivers of performance in the battlefield, while projects for professional teams and elite athletes includes performance solutions for nutrition, training, recovery, and high-performance team development.

Prior to this, Marcello served as the Director of Sports Performance at Stanford University. In this role, Marcello oversaw all aspects of athletic performance enhancement of the 36 intercollegiate sport teams. Acting as the chief administrator for the Sports Performance department, Marcello's responsibilities included, but were not limited to, designing facilities and equipment layout, strategic planning, developing nutritional and recovery strategies, overseeing staff development, directing methodology and driving innovation. During his seven years at Stanford, Dr. Marcello initiated cross-departmental collaboration with many of Stanford's academic departments such as the Stanford Sleep Center, Center for Longevity and Life, bio-engineering, Residential and Dining enterprises, Stanford surgery, Hoover Institute, and the departments of neuroscience and genetics. He was the creator of the highly-acclaimed Performance-Based Dining concept that has been successfully implemented since 2011, and has received national media attention (See Sports Illustrated, November 7, 2011 among others) and numerous awards.

Prior to his arrival at Stanford, he served as the Director of Performance for USA Softball. Hand picked by Head Coach Mike Candrea, Marcello developed and implemented all athletic development programs for the 2008 Silver Medal U.S. Olympic Softball team, 2007 Gold Medal Pan American team and 2006 Gold Medal World Championship team.

In 1999 he was approached by Mark Verstegen to join him in Tempe, Ariz. to help create EXOS (formerly Athletes' Performance (AP)), a world-class training facility for professional and elite athletes. While at AP, Marcello improved the performance of a number of athletes from the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA, LPGA, and WTA.

Prior to his work at the Arizona facility, Marcello was a Performance Specialist at the International Performance Institute (IPI) of the IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. There he prepared top college football players for the National Invitational Camp (NFL Combine) dramatically improving their draft status; in many cases to first and second round picks.

A recognized author, researcher, and international presenter, he routinely speaks around the world on a number of topics pertaining to elite-level performance. His work appears regularly in numerous journals, textbooks, and periodicals. He also has served as a consultant to U.S. military, many Division-I programs, International Sports Federations, as well and Adidas, Under Armor and Nike.

Marcello holds a PhD in sports nutrition from Baylor University, and a MS and BS in Exercise Science from Marshall University.

A Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitator (TSAC-F) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Marcello is also recognized as an RSCC*E by the same organization. He holds two certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES). Additionally he also maintains two certifications through U.S.A. Weightlifting.

Episode 225: Leo Ryan - All Things Breathing

This episodes guest is Leo Ryan from Innate Strength.

Leo Ryan is a Health Performance and Breathing Specialist and the founder of Innate-Strength.com. Leo has studied athletic training, health and breathing since healing himself of asthma in 2004 with the Buteyko Method. After graduating with an MSc from University College Dublin, he continued to educate himself prolifically throughout his professional career in Ireland and internationally. He has attained multiple diplomas and certificates from much elite personal training, physical therapy and breathing schools including Dip. Buteyko Method, Wim Hof Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Instructor, Fascial Stretch Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates teacher.

Leo’s love and experience for health and physical performance have seen his research more than 50 breathing techniques, the mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions and he undertook several internships with the world-renowned Dr Eric Serrano.

Up to 2019, Leo has spent a lot of his time coaching one-to-one in a personal training environment and testing his training methodology on himself. Leo played Senior club GAA football in Dublin with St. Sylvester’s. He is a black belt in judo, he ran marathons without any specific training, he gained more than 52 lbs of muscle, and he even climbed a mountain with nothing but a pair of shorts and boots. His clients have healed cardiovascular disease, asthma and anxiety. They’ve reduced symptoms of depression, panic, colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Some have gained weight, purposely and others have intentionally lost weight. The best thing is, they’ve also gone onto to return to their passions in life, like tennis, running and Gaelic games.

Leo continues to train people one-to-one and he also coaches the fundamentals of breathing, movement and resilience for life and athletic endeavours through workshops.

 On this episode Leo and I discuss:

  • Leo's background and how he got into breathe work
  • What is an Asthma attack like?
  • How to access and train the breath
  • Leo talks about the differences between Wim Hof's work and Patrick McKeown's
  • I ask Leo what was training with Wim like?
  • I ask Leo about his biggest influences?
  • I ask Leo how he learns
  • I ask Leo if there is anything he does on a daily basis that is essential to his day?
  • I ask Leo for his top and current book recommendations
  • I ask Leo how fatherhood changed his life?
  • I ask Leo the importance of being role model for his daughters
  • I ask Leo, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Episode 220: Greg Schiable - A rehabilitation philosophy and system

This episode’s guest is Greg Schiable from On Track Physiotherapy and Sportsrehabexpert.com

Greg Schaible is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Owner of On Track Physiotherapy. and Owner of the online educational resource for sports and orthopedic clinician's Sports Rehab Expert.  

Dr. Schaible attended The University of Findlay where he earned his Doctorate of Physical.

While attending the University of Findlay, he competed as an athlete in both Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field, where he earned honors as a 5x Division II All-American and a 6x Division II Academic All-American.

In addition to treating client's, Dr. Schaible also provides educational information and online courses to other sports and orthopedic clinician's through the website he owns called  Sports Rehab Expert

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, and a former Collegiate Athlete, Dr. Schaible brings a unique perspective to his treatment approach. This gives him the ability to combine aspects of rehabilitation and training during evaluation, as well as when formulating a treatment plan. When you don't find Greg in the clinic treating patients, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, living an active lifestyle, coaching, and playing sports. He is an avid Lions, Pistons, and most importantly a Michigan Wolverines fan!

 

On this episode Greg and I discuss:

  • Greg's background
  • Where is Joe Heiler?
  • Greg's rehabilitation and system
  • I ask Greg about return to performance and his discharge process
  • Greg shares a case study with us on an American football punter 
  • I ask Greg what have been biggest lessons he has learned in his life
  • I ask Greg how he learns?
  • I ask Greg, is there anything he does daily, that is essential to his day?
  • I ask Greg about his biggest influences
  • I ask Greg for his top and current book reading recommendations
  • I ask Greg, if he only had one left on planet earth, how would he spend that year and why?
  • I ask Greg, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB
