Craig Harper and I have known each other for nearly 30 years.
We’ve worked together in elite sport, I worked for him in my first PT role and we’ve been business partners in our own PT centre.
We’ve remained good mates all of that time and whenever we sit down to do a podcast, it’s a bit like to old cowboys sitting around a campfire discussing the good old times and how it used to be done ‘back in the day’.
Truth is though, between the two of us we’ve got over 60 years of field experience, training bodies and minds and enhancing physical performance.
Tens of thousands of PT sessions between us, tens of thousands of hours spent working with all sorts of teams and individuals, from General Population through to elite athletes and everyone in between.
We had so much to discuss, we had to cut our Science of Exercise Episode into two parts.
In these Episodes we talk progressive overload, program design, finding the right ‘dose’, how and when adaptation happens, training intensity, recovery, over-training, periodization, weight training for strength, power, hypertrophy, muscular endurance and as with all chats with Craig, we had a few laughs along the way.
I hope you enjoy listening to two OG's talk about all things training.
