Episode 38: Meet Prep

On this week’s episode it is time for another listener question. Top high school coach Bill Pendleton of Esperanza High School in Orange County asked us:

Outside of throwing technique and lifting cycles, what can a coach do in practice to help athletes perform well at competitions?

There are many ways which you can prepare athletes in training, and both Nick and I go through our favorites in this episode. In fact, you have to put in this work before the meets since if you want until the meet it’s too late. As Nick puts it:

'If you've done your job as a coach, you don't even need to be at the competition.' @nick_g_garcia Click To Tweet

Also on this episode we introduce a new segment where we give our hot take on a recent headline. This week we look at Raven Saunders’ NCAA record in the shot put from a week ago. All that and more on this week’s episode, which you can listen to below. Plus please also give us a review on iTunes if you like the podcast.
