RPR Episode 7: Casey Metoyer

Casey Metoyer, assistant athletic performance coach at UCLA, joins the show today to talk about collegiate strength and conditioning, velocity-based training, and load monitoring. As someone who lives in the private world, it’s always great getting to jam with coaches like Casey, who bring such valuable insight with regards to career choices (collegiate vs. private) and science-backed training/coaching practices.

We go pretty deep on both velocity-based training and load monitoring and hear how Casey and the UCLA strength staff are implementing these tools to improve their practice, get their athletes better results, and keep them healthy. For example, we talk about using question mark sets vs. strict set prescriptions, how to modify VBT for different types of athletes, how to calculate load, and where they currently have cut-offs in place for acute to chronic load monitoring.

Overall, I can’t think of a better way to spend an hour. Enjoy!
