STRONG Life Podcast ep 333
This is a throwback interview I did with Louie Simmons, back in 2008.
Back then, there were NO such thing as a podcast.
I was using a landline to record these audio interviews for https://UndergroundStrengthCoach.com aka The Underground Strength Academy
This was done after Louie released his book, The Westside Barbell Book of Methods. I devoured that book in NO time and could NOT put it down.
Topics covered in this episode:
- Special Strength Training for Track Athletes
- Special Strength Training for MMA Fighters
- Implementing GPP training for youth athletes, especially Football players

For many years I've been hopping on the phone with Louie Simmons on a weekly basis to talk training methods for athletes.
Louie understands the role of a QUALIFIED Strength Coach training athletes vs someone who is blindly copying what they see online or blindly applying what they once did as an athlete.
A Strength Coach requires an understanding of MUCH MORE than the game / sport itself.
The Strength Coach must realize his influence on the life of the athlete, understanding special strengths, understanding how to manipulate volume, intensity and individualizing workouts.... Plus MUCH more as we discuss in this interview with Louie Simmons.
Here are some videos with Louie discussing special strength training for athletes:

Listen as Louie talks about training for athletes, special strengths, his new book & much more.
