Episode 17: Interview with Alex Viada - Athlete Development using a Concurrent Training Model

In episode seventeen of the Strength Ratio Podcast, we’re joined again by Alex Viada of Complete Human Performance. Alex is back to discuss athlete development using a concurrent training model. 

This episode first highlights the development of an intermediate to advanced level endurance athlete, who, as a novice to weight training, begins training both endurance and strength concurrently. Alex details his methodology for introducing this particular athlete to moving with external load safely, and with intelligent progression. 

Next, the episode explores the development of the intermediate to advanced level lifter, who, novice to endurance training, begins training both strength and endurance concurrently. This part of discussion involves topics that include endurance technique, the benefits of the lifter’s learned proprioception, and breathing.
