Season 4 Episode 28 Tim Kettenring- “How do we make these high outputs more repeatable?”

This week I’m fired up to sit down and talk conditioning with Tim Kettenring. Tim has been doing some awesome work helping coaches have a better understanding of how they can build bigger engines with the Conditioning Cohort. Throughout the great 30-plus minute chat, Tim and I get into

  • The areas of physiology that he feels are overlooked by coaches and where coaches can look to have a better understanding of what the “cohort” is trying to teach.
  • What are some of the driving questions behind his deeper dive into energy system development that has led to his desire to help coaches have a better understanding of these physiological adaptations.
  • Reasons behind some of the “standoffishness” towards low intensity conditioning work, and how we could possibly counteract those
  • Where the autonomic nervous system fits in their education model, and why it’s so important to understand the basics of ANS physiology and how it relates to conditioning levels and performance.
  • Next steps in progressing conditioning work once the athlete has a “solid base”
  • Ways to make your energy system work be a bit more practical in the team setting

A ton of great insight into what Tim is doing with, not just the course but what his training philosophy is and the driving factors behind it.
