Episode 226: Brandon Marcello - The life of a high performance sports consultant

Jan 30, 2020 01:03:24

Description:

This episodes guest is Brandon Marcello

With over 20-years experience in the performance enhancement industry, Brandon Marcello, PhD brings innovation, education, and proven application to the worlds of sports performance, health, fitness, and wellness.

Originally from Sarasota, FL, Marcello has worked in the professional, Olympic and top collegiate settings. He has also served as a consultant to various organizations and media groups.

Having extensive involvement in both the applied and research worlds, he has implemented successful, high-performance training programs for professional, Olympic and collegiate athletes.

For the last 22 years, Dr. Marcello has taken individuals and organizations to the next level through multi-year and time-limited human performance consulting projects in the United States and abroad. His work in conjunction with Draper Laboratories for the U.S. Special Forces has provided a deep, multivariate understanding of the drivers of performance in the battlefield, while projects for professional teams and elite athletes includes performance solutions for nutrition, training, recovery, and high-performance team development.

Prior to this, Marcello served as the Director of Sports Performance at Stanford University. In this role, Marcello oversaw all aspects of athletic performance enhancement of the 36 intercollegiate sport teams. Acting as the chief administrator for the Sports Performance department, Marcello's responsibilities included, but were not limited to, designing facilities and equipment layout, strategic planning, developing nutritional and recovery strategies, overseeing staff development, directing methodology and driving innovation. During his seven years at Stanford, Dr. Marcello initiated cross-departmental collaboration with many of Stanford's academic departments such as the Stanford Sleep Center, Center for Longevity and Life, bio-engineering, Residential and Dining enterprises, Stanford surgery, Hoover Institute, and the departments of neuroscience and genetics. He was the creator of the highly-acclaimed Performance-Based Dining concept that has been successfully implemented since 2011, and has received national media attention (See Sports Illustrated, November 7, 2011 among others) and numerous awards.

Prior to his arrival at Stanford, he served as the Director of Performance for USA Softball. Hand picked by Head Coach Mike Candrea, Marcello developed and implemented all athletic development programs for the 2008 Silver Medal U.S. Olympic Softball team, 2007 Gold Medal Pan American team and 2006 Gold Medal World Championship team.

In 1999 he was approached by Mark Verstegen to join him in Tempe, Ariz. to help create EXOS (formerly Athletes' Performance (AP)), a world-class training facility for professional and elite athletes. While at AP, Marcello improved the performance of a number of athletes from the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA, LPGA, and WTA.

Prior to his work at the Arizona facility, Marcello was a Performance Specialist at the International Performance Institute (IPI) of the IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. There he prepared top college football players for the National Invitational Camp (NFL Combine) dramatically improving their draft status; in many cases to first and second round picks.

A recognized author, researcher, and international presenter, he routinely speaks around the world on a number of topics pertaining to elite-level performance. His work appears regularly in numerous journals, textbooks, and periodicals. He also has served as a consultant to U.S. military, many Division-I programs, International Sports Federations, as well and Adidas, Under Armor and Nike.

Marcello holds a PhD in sports nutrition from Baylor University, and a MS and BS in Exercise Science from Marshall University.

A Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitator (TSAC-F) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Marcello is also recognized as an RSCC*E by the same organization. He holds two certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES). Additionally he also maintains two certifications through U.S.A. Weightlifting.

 

 On this episode Brandon and I discuss:

Brandon's background Why Brandon decided to get into consulting? What services Brandon offers organizations? I ask Brandon how he deals with any potential conflict within the organizations he has consulted with? What are some of the common issues that Brandon see's with the organizations that he has consulted with?

I ask Brandon about nutrition for high performance  I ask Brandon about the differences in the recovery trends between males vs females I ask Brandon about behavioral change Brandon and I discuss happiness within the coaching profession I ask Brandon, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

Episode 225: Leo Ryan - All Things Breathing

Dec 31, 2019 02:12:36

Description:

This episodes guest is Leo Ryan from Innate Strength.

Leo Ryan is a Health Performance and Breathing Specialist and the founder of Innate-Strength.com. Leo has studied athletic training, health and breathing since healing himself of asthma in 2004 with the Buteyko Method. After graduating with an MSc from University College Dublin, he continued to educate himself prolifically throughout his professional career in Ireland and internationally. He has attained multiple diplomas and certificates from much elite personal training, physical therapy and breathing schools including Dip. Buteyko Method, Wim Hof Instructor, Oxygen Advantage Instructor, Fascial Stretch Therapist, Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates teacher.

Leo’s love and experience for health and physical performance have seen his research more than 50 breathing techniques, the mentor with coaches to Olympians, UFC Fighters and World Champions and he undertook several internships with the world-renowned Dr Eric Serrano.

Up to 2019, Leo has spent a lot of his time coaching one-to-one in a personal training environment and testing his training methodology on himself. Leo played Senior club GAA football in Dublin with St. Sylvester’s. He is a black belt in judo, he ran marathons without any specific training, he gained more than 52 lbs of muscle, and he even climbed a mountain with nothing but a pair of shorts and boots. His clients have healed cardiovascular disease, asthma and anxiety. They’ve reduced symptoms of depression, panic, colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Some have gained weight, purposely and others have intentionally lost weight. The best thing is, they’ve also gone onto to return to their passions in life, like tennis, running and Gaelic games.

Leo continues to train people one-to-one and he also coaches the fundamentals of breathing, movement and resilience for life and athletic endeavours through workshops.

 On this episode Leo and I discuss:

Leo's background and how he got into breathe work What is an Asthma attack like? How to access and train the breath Leo talks about the differences between Wim Hof's work and Patrick McKeown's I ask Leo what was training with Wim like? I ask Leo about his biggest influences? I ask Leo how he learns I ask Leo if there is anything he does on a daily basis that is essential to his day? I ask Leo for his top and current book recommendations I ask Leo how fatherhood changed his life? I ask Leo the importance of being role model for his daughters I ask Leo, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

Episode 215: Chris Korfist, Cal Dietz, and JL Holdsworth - Reflexive Performance Reset (RPR)

Jul 13, 2019 01:24:08

Description:

This episodes guests are Chris Korfist, J.L. Holdsworth, and Cal Dietz.

Unlike most facilities who are staffed by young coaches who rely on their recent playing career and “cool” factor, Slow Guy Speed School is staffed by Chris Korfist, a “sprint guru” with an international following.

With over 55 all-state sprinters and countless other high school all-state athletes, and over 20 years experience, he knows what is appropriate for the athlete in the room and not so concerned about what the pros are doing or someone else journey to where they got.

In fact, the methods have been so effective, Chris has consulted NFL teams, Big 10 Universities, Olympic team and U.S. Special Forces.



JL Holdsworth is a world champion powerlifter, published author and former University of Kentucky strength and conditioning coach. With over 30,000 hours of practical experience and competition best lifts of a 905 lb. squat, 775 lb. bench press, and a 804 lb. deadlift, JL is no doubt one of the strongest and most experienced strength and conditioning coaches in the industry.

JL has been the official speed and performance coach for the Major League Lacrosse, Ohio Machine, for the past 3 seasons. He is a highly sought after speaker and has presented internationally on many topics relating to human performance. He regularly consults with major collegiate, NFL and NHL programs such as The New York Jets, St. Louis Blues, University of Clemson & The Ohio State University.

In 2010 he founded The Spot Athletics and has built that small private training facility into two 20,000sq. ft. locations in the Columbus, OH area. Along with his facilities, JL is the Co-Founder of Reflexive Performance Reset (RPR), an injury prevention and performance system being used by many top sports organizations around the world.

 

Cal Dietz has been an Olympic Sport Strength and Conditioning coach for numerous sports at the University of Minnesota since 2000. During his tenure, Dietz has trained athletes that have achieved 400+ All-American honors, Teams that have won 33 Big Ten/WCHA championships teams and 10 NCAA Team Champions. He has consulted with Olympic and World Champions in various sports and professional athletes in the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB, MMA and Professional Boxing.

On this episode guys and I discuss:

I the guys to introduce themselves I ask Cal when TriPhasic 2 is coming out RPRs origins  What is RPR? What evidence is there to support RPR? Where can people find out more about RPR and the new RPR level 1 online course I ask the guys if RPR will be hosting any seminars in Europe I ask the guys where people can find out more about them I ask the guys what are they currently reading?

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Jul 10, 2019 01:55:44

Description:

This episodes guest sees the reuturn of Mladen Jovanović from complementarytraining.net.

Mladen is a physical preparation coach from Belgrade, Serbia, grew up in Pula, Croatia (which he considers his home town). He was involved in physical preparation of professional, amateur and recreational athletes of various ages in sports, such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, martial arts and tennis.

In his free time he trains Boxing/MMA and lift (sometimes heavy), along with reading about statistics and learning R programming language. Some consider him an Excel wizard. He is also interested in predictive analytics/machine learning.

Mladen was on the ATSW podcast back in episode 146.


On this episode Mladen and I discuss:

I ask Mladen to explain what the term satisfice I ask Mladen to discuss Leonard Jimmie Savage's small world vs large world I ask Mladen to outline his endurance map I ask Mladen to explain what are maximum sprint speed (MSS), maximum aerobic speed (MAS), and the anaerobic speed reserve (ASR) Mladen outlines what tests his likes to use to get an idea of an individuals MSS, MAS, and ASR I ask Mladen to explain what is a sensitivity analysis  I ask Mladen what are the best way's to estimate an individuals MSS I ask Mladen to discuss the different HIT methods outlined in the manual I ask Mladen to outline his tempo running method and how he individualizes its prescription I ask Mladen can you estimate an individuals 100m time from a flying 10? I ask Mladen why total time of repeat sprints is a better indicator repeated-sprint-ability (RSA) than a fatigue drop index  I ask Mladen to discuss the importance of having heuristics when planning and organizing training to navigate uncertainty  I ask Mladen regarding the planning of training - What should be done? When should it done? How to minimize being wrong? Which are 3 concepts he outlines in his manual I ask Mladen to discuss - Phenomenological analysis, mechanistic (or performance) analysis, and physiological analysis Mladen and I discuss how principles from economics can be applied to planning the training process Mladen outlines his 3 heuristics for planning training - 1). Make it simple, 2). Decrease the downside, 3). Increase the upside I ask Mladen what fields outside of sports preparation did he research for the manual I ask Mladen to discuss iterative planning vs up-front planning Mladen and discuss "criteria-based" programming I ask Mladen whats he reading?

Episode 199: Val Nasedkin - Learning, HRV, and Windows of Trainability

Feb 6, 2019 01:18:36

Description:

This episodes guest is Val Nasedkin of Omegawave

Val Nasedkin is the Co-Founder & Vice President of Business Development for Omegawave, a company that merges the fields of neurology, cardiology, and exercise physiology with mobile computer technology. Using EKG, HRV, and DC potential measurements, Omegawave devices offer sports-specific outputs on readiness to train and guidance for achieving specific physiological adaptations. Their technology has been used by multiple Olympic Federations; premier soccer teams such as FC Barcelona; teams from the NFL, MLS and NHL; and various other leading sports organizations.

As a former elite athlete and coach with decades of experience testing elite athletes, Val learned that the type, volume, and intensity of the training load should not be the primary focus, but rather the timing of when the load is applied. 

Note - for some reason my Mic was not connected up properly for this interview but the audio is still good enough, and Val is crystal clear. I am a little low. 

On this episode Val and I discuss:

Val's background I ask Val why did he move to America I ask Val for his biggest influences  I ask Val what are the good and not so good things that he currently see's with the sports preparation profession, and what solutions would he offer for the not so good things that he see's I ask Val what is more important - Technical, Tactical, Psychological, Physical? I ask Val what technology in the future could help us measure skill acquisition and learning? I ask Val how can we as coaches improve our terminology to develop our communication? Val shares with us his thoughts on Heart Rate Variability  I ask Val to discuss the Windows of Trainability  I ask Val what have been the biggest lessons he has learned in his career? I ask Val how does his learn? I ask Val for his top and current book recommendations I ask Val what is one thing he does everyday that is essential to each day? I ask Val for his top life advice? I ask Val what was it like to grow up in the former Soviet Union? I ask Val, if he had only 1 year left on planet Earth - how would he spend that year and why? I ask Val, if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Episode 190: Dr. Ben House - Optimizing Testosterone

Nov 28, 2018 01:16:23

Description:

This episodes guest is Dr. Ben House from Functional Medicine Costa Rica


This is Ben's second appearance on the ATSW podcast, having been previously on the show back on episode 119.

Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP). House was accepted to medical school without an undergraduate degree, but rescinded because during this time his father was fighting for his life with debilitating diverticulitis. The conventional medical model prescribed him pain killers, antibiotics, saltine crackers, and white bread. This pushed House to question the sick care model and look for the underlying lifestyle and dietary factors that could be the reason why his father was in so much pain. Lo and behold his father had Celiac disease and within a week of removing all grains and diary from his diet he was symptom free. This was Dr. House’s first taste of Functional Medicine and he knew at that moment that this would be his life’s passion. Since then he has studied under some of the best in the world and continues to regularly attend and present at conferences and seminars around the world.

As a strength coach, House has worked at both the high school and collegiate levels, including time under Coach Wright at the University of Texas Basketball. Besides practicing Functional Med, coaching, and writing articles for Functional Medicine Costa Rica, House has numerous publications in peer-reviewed, high-impact scientific journals. House blends his knowledge of research and Functional Medicine with years of experience working directly with a variety of different clients.

On this episode Ben and I discussed:

Ben gives us a brief background and introduction Ben and I discuss how much hypertrophy is necessary for health  I ask Ben to discuss how to optimize testosterone production I ask Ben what testing does he like to use to assess someones testosterone levels - blood, saliva, and. or urine? I ask Ben what interventions does he like to utilize to enhance testosterone production I ask Ben about about how concussion can lead to a leaky brain and gut barrier I ask Ben - would he ever recommend someone to decrease their daily step count to help enhance hypertrophy gains? I ask Ben how does he set an individuals caloric needs and macro-nutrients?  I ask Ben about the polarized topic of energy in and out and hormonal regulation when it comes to weight and body composition management  Finally I ask Ben - if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?


This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Episode 185: Alex Viada - Hybrid (Concurrent) Training Masterclass

Oct 31, 2018 01:43:27

Description:

This episode's guest is Alex Viada from Complete Human Performance.

Alex Viada, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and USA Triathlon Coach, is the founder and co-owner of Complete Human Performance. A lifelong athlete, he has participated and competed in nearly every sport imaginable (some with greater success than others), since being dragged to his first swim meet when he was four years old.

Alex has close to 13 years of personal training and coaching experience with over 300 athletes of all ages and levels, in sports ranging from bodybuilding to ultra running to triathlon to cycling to powerlifting. He has also prepared close to 40 individuals for Ranger School, SFAS, BUD/s, and other selective military programs.

A graduate of Duke University, currently on hiatus from a Masters of Physiology program at NC State University, Alex enjoys lifting heavy things, biking, running long distances, and otherwise pushing himself to his limit (though his body is not always on board with the program). He is also an avid homebrewer, and if you give him much of an opening, he will happily bore you with details on hop schedules and yeast strain flocculation. You’ve been warned.


On this episode Alex and I discuss:

Alex's background & Influences  What are the good and not so good things that Alex currently see's with the physical preparation profession, and what solutions would he offer for the not so good things he is seeing? I ask Alex how did he get into Hybrid (Concurrent Training)? I ask Alex - what considerations need to be made for strength athletes wanting to start endurance sports, and what considerations do endurance athletes need to mark when they want to get into strength sports I ask Alex what is it like to deal with the different personality types between strength athletes vs endurance athletes when they begin their journey into concurrent training I ask Alex about the nutritional needs for the hybrid athlete I ask Alex - How does he calculate an Athletes caloric needs when they begin to engage in concurrent training I ask Alex - what are the common myths that he consistently has to dismiss with concurrent training and what are the benefits for strength athletes to incorporate some endurance work into their training regimes and vice versa for the endurance athlete I ask Alex to discuss his design of training cycles for concurrent training and how he consolidates stressors I ask how does he peak individuals for powerlifting meets and endurance events that are very close together on the competition calendar? I ask Alex - How does his learn? I ask Alex - what have been the biggest Lessons he has learned so far in his life? I ask Alex for his top resources I ask Alex for his top life advice  I ask Alex if he only had 1 year left on Planet Earth - how would he spend that year and why? I ask Alex if he could invite 5 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would he invite and why?

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB

Episode 184: Pat Davidson - Whats New? MASS 3, Reckoning 2, and Costa Rica Retreat

Oct 29, 2018 01:15:37

Description:

Firstly - My audio sucks dick on this episode - I was in between laptops at the time and the audio on my end didn't come out great. I fucked up the mic set up. Pat is crystal clear, and really that's all that matters.

Also you will hear me chopping some vegetables for a few minutes mid-way through the episode (27:00 to approximately 38:00) and because I was unaware of how the laptop I was using at the time was functioning regarding the audio set up - it picked up the sound of me preparing my meal. But fuck it the content of the conservation was too good for me not to post this episode. I have since sorted the audio and have acquired a quality mic, and since this episode the audio for all episodes since has been excellent. 

Anyway....

On this episode Pat and I discuss:

Whats new with him MASS 3 We discuss the use of RPEs I ask Pat about the withdrawal from completing MASS 2 and how he will consider this for MASS 3 I ask Pat - how was the Reckoning 2 Pat discusses how we as a specific are reducing our allostatic capabilities by making our environments too comfortable  I ask Pat - How was the retreat at Ben House's Wellness Centre in Costa Rica I ask Pat what was he currently reading at the time of this recording

 

This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,

RB
