I had the pleasure of sitting down and discussing training and running a powerlifting team with Guillermo Blanco in this weeks episode of The Podcast. After a run down of how he got to McKendree we roll right into the world of D2 sports, and how there are similarities and differences to both D3 and D1. This leads into a great discussion about what he feels his most important role is in the training process, any why he feels it’s so important. We then discuss the team he is a head coach for, the Powerlifting team. This includes the training and meet program, how that is set up through out the year, and how academics impact this year round sport. Guillermo’s coaching and the uniqueness of a powerlifting team is great insight into how we can work better to develop better training, and even use their “ideas” to provide better means for our athlete’s to improve.
