Lance Goyke, the modern-day renaissance man, joins the show today to talk about generalists, learning and his path to finding a smarter way to train. As someone who shares Lance’s interest as an education junkie, it’s always nice hearing how he approaches the learning process and aggregation of information. While not the sexiest of topics, learning how to learn is the key to being successful in any endeavor, and strength and conditioning is no exception. The athletes and coaches who can learn the best tend to win. Period.
After learning talk, we dive into the more nuts and bolts of training. In particular, we talk about movement, something Lance knows quite a lot about, and how he’s currently structuring training for his clients. This includes cycles that focus on strength, cycles that focus on hypertrophy, and cycles that focus on cardiovascular gains. Don’t worry, we get into what each of those looks like.
On the tail end of the episode, we get into some Lance’s favorite resources and bond about how much of a man-crush we have on Seth Godin.
