excellent insight - ideas that transfer to unrelated fields
On more than one occasion they've made a sports-related insight that strikes me as incredibly relevant to my own non-analogous field.
Many thanks for the time and effort the two of you put into the podcast.
Please keep up the outstanding content as your schedule allows.
Great level-headed insight into elite triathlon coaching. Sousa can come across as smug but he and Filliol are rightly dismissive of the trendy buzzy nature of triathlon. I imagine it is difficult to organize episodes once the season starts and their groups are out and about throughout the world but now would be a great time to provide an interesting look into competition training from the coaches' perspective and the planning required to balance squads, stars and new or transitioining members. Beats rubbish like Ben Greenfield.
Insightful and Thought-Provoking : Tons of learnings even for the recreational athlete
I always learn a ton from listening to this podcast. Joel and Paulo are very good at providing an experienced and balanced perspective to training techniques, protocols and overall approach. This is very helpful in navigating the web of myths, fads, micro-optimizations mixed with all the sound training advice you get exposed to, learn the tools required to make a judgement of your own, and boost your critical thinking when it comes to sport training and performance.
Another highlight is their all encompassing approach to performance, and a very real, human, genuine tone of conversation.
There is something in there to learn for everybody from coaches to athletes, from olympic level to recreational.
Thank you Joel & Paulo this podcast is a real blessing!
