This week the “Coaches Series” welcomes strength coach Kyle Holland of EXOS. Kyle is a wealth of information and experience in the strength and conditioning field. I was lucky enough to work alongside him at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning where I learned a lot from him and I still continue to learn from him to this day. Knowledge bombs are dropped daily on his twitter account and if you don’t follow him already, you need to. Enjoy this weeks interview and I hope you gain some new knowledge from it to take forward into your coaching.
There are some weeks that there are so many books, articles, videos, sporting events and or possibly anything else that catch my eye. This is simply a weekly synopsis of what I came across.
1. Joel Jamieson’s “Ultimate MMA Conditioning”
A must read for all strength and conditioning coaches. Joel breaks down how he gets his fighters in prime condition for their next fight. A great insight into the tailored approach of conditioning he uses. He also dispels the idea that aerobic conditioning is of no use to anyone except long distance runners. You can purchase “Ultimate MMA Conditioning” here.
