Alex Harrison, Science Consultant of Renaissance Periodization, joins us again to discuss Concurrent Training. Alex references the graph below, from the symposium review “Concurrent exercise training: do opposites distract?” by Coffey and Hawley, to explain the interference effect for both trained, and untrained populations.
Our topic then turns to HIIT “High Intensity Interval Training” for both endurance athletes and for CrossFit athletes.Read More
James Hoffmann, consultant for Renaissance Periodization, joins us again to discuss the volume landmarks of training. In Episode 31, James discussed the volume landmarks in the context of field sports and CrossFit. In this episode, however, James focuses on recoverable abilities for hypertrophy, power, and strength.
This episode also involves volume landmark considerations for…Read More
In Episode 35 of the Strength Ratio Podcast, Zach & Kyle review the major talking points of the latest five episodes. The topics discussed in this episode include the gut microbiome, athlete monitoring, and the relative frequency of high versus low intensity exercise in a concurrent training plan.
So, if recently you’ve been unable to tune in weekly, you can catch up on what you’ve missed in Episode 35!Read More
James Hoffmann, who holds a PhD in Sports Physiology, is a consultant for Renaissance Periodization. Jame's contributions to the field of exercise science have had a notable impact on our education in, and programming for, sports performance.
In Episode 31, James joins us to discuss volume landmarks of training in the context of field sports and of CrossFit. When training multiple fitness characteristics concurrently…Read More
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…Read More
In episode fifteen of the Strength Ratio Podcast, we’re joined by Alex Viada who shares with us his insight on concurrent training. Alex, a lifelong athlete, is the founder and co-owner of Complete Human Performance, and author of "The Hybrid Athlete". Alex epitomizes what it means to be a "hybrid" athlete, as he's deadlifted 700 pounds and completed a 50-mile ultra-marathon in a week's time.
In this interview with Zach Greenwald, Alex answers what it means to be a "hybrid" athlete…Read More
In this podcast, we share how we program for both strength and conditioning, concurrently. Our ABC Model creates a framework of exercise selection and exercise intensities that help our athletes improve performance, and regulate fatigue over time. Grab a pen and paper for this one; you may want to take notes!

In this episode, we begin by discussing the stress response to training, and the indicators of training thresholds necessary to elicit a minimum effective dose. Next, we highlight traditional recommendations of strength training variables such as volume, intensity, frequency and time, as well as their effects on size and strength.Read More
In this episode, we discuss the neuromuscular adaptations to strength training and define three types of strength: relative, absolute, and general. We explain the significance of each of these three types of strength training, and how they can be trained concurrently.
