Don Larkin is a strength coach based in Harrisburg, Pa, who has been working with endurance athletes of all ages and abilities for over 10 years. We sat down with Don to talk about how to be a more savvy consumer of information and “advice” that we see given online every day, that can lead us astray from what we actually need, or need to be focusing on. Questions covered include:
How to actually improve fitness & strength Why strength training is often skipped or neglected by endurance athletes How to look at yourself or your athlete as a whole How to be a better coach to your athletes What you need to identify early on in a strength training program or swim/bike/run program to help an athlete improve and stay healthy How to interview a coach
And perhaps most importantly, the critical skill of building a quality network of professionals with complimentary skillsets, and not hesitating to refer out.
This one’s a great one!
