Second, here are my slides from the two presentations that I shared. The first presentation is titled “Is Periodization Dead? Metabolic Considerations, Neuromuscular Considerations and Peaking” and the second is titled “Planning a session, a microcycle, a mesocycle and a macrocycle.” Obviously a set of slides doesn’t take the place of actually watching and listening to a presentation, but at least you will get a sense of what the presentations are about.
Finally, let me share two quick comments from people who have already seen all six of the videos from the clinic.
The first is from an adult runner.
The Boulder Running Clinics presentations will serve as an ultimate runner’s guide for me during my 10k and half marathon preparation this year and hopefully more (marathon) next year! This information isn’t just for coaches….the presentations have been very eye opening. Especially being backed by significant data from Dr. Messer and Dr. Hansen concerning topics such as: healthy progressive training stimuli, hill training, macronutrients and synthesis, concurrent training, ancillary work, and identifying cause of injury with recovery methods. I greatly look forward to applying these gems from the Boulder Running Clinics to my training this year. Thank you!
My first thought after watching these videos was “I just became a better coach”. Not for the total beginner coach but if you have a philosophy on coaching they show why certain methods may or may not work. All the presenters unselfishly share all of their research which you and I don’t have time to do. From workouts to recovery foods to exercises to incorporate within our program the presenters leave no stone unturned. I was constantly “at the edge of my seat” anxious to hear what he was going to share next. Great to listen to twice. The first time around just to listen. The second time to take notes.
Obviously I’m proud to get such nice feedback on a clinic that Dr. Messer, Dr. Hansen and myself took very seriously. Again, join the newsletter so you can get 25% off the videos when we release them later this week. And if you want a taste of what the videos look like, you can watch this playlist of seven short excerpts from Dr. Messer and Dr. Hansen’s presentations.
