“Context has been lost in several areas in our profession.”

What’s up everybody and welcome the 26th episode of Outside The Rack brought to you by Kinetic Performance the makers of Gymaware. In this show we are going to try to dive a little deeper into the minds of the top practitioners in the world of sport performance to learn a bit more about who they actually are and how they got to where they are at today. Today we are joined by the Senior Associate Athletics Director for Performance and Student-Athlete Welfare at California State University Northridge, Bob Alejo. Bob, thanks for being with us.

Before we start, who is Bob Alejo?

I’m a veteran strength and conditioning practitioner, who is looking for the best ways to provide the best experience for the athletes we get to work with.

1)        Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career

There’s actually 2. The first was seeing Al Vermeil coach in the early 80’s and watching him coach. The second was in 2005 working with the track team at UC Santa Barbra watching a squat assessment taught him not everyone feels and enjoys training like we do.

2)        If you could ask one questions and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?

“When are you perfectly ready to train again?”

3)        What’s your escape?

I’ve been called a workaholic but I really find relaxation in reading research and talking shop. Otherwise I really enjoy fly fishing, and music and movies. But I wouldn’t call them escapes, that’s my life.

We are hoping to provide the best possible content for strength coaches with each of our shows. If feel this could provide value for anyone else in the strength and conditioning field please feel free to share.
