RPR Episode 2 - Kyle Dobbs

Kyle Dobbs, professional tall guy and mentor to trainers/coaches around the world, joins the show today to talk about developing world-class coaches and, of course, picking things up and putting them back down. We kick things off getting into Kyle’s background as a collegiate athlete and how he found strength and conditioning, and then transition to talk about his mentorship group. In particular, we dive into understanding what your limiting factor is as a coach and the importance of language constructs. If you keep alphabet souping people and using big words because you think it makes you smart, please stop.

From there, we talk all things lifting, getting into Kyle’s current thought processes when it comes to programming. Topics covered include designing a training week, high-low or 3-3 splits, phase progression, complexity curves, consolidation of stressors, and much much more. If you’re a coach looking to up your game, or an athlete trying to better understand how to structure your programming, then this episode is for you.
