Ever wondered how Michael Phelps trains and eats to support becoming the greatest Olympic athlete of all time? How does one even get to be a strength coach for such an amazing athlete? Tune in to Part 1 of this 2 part interview with Phelps' strength & conditioning coordinator Keenan Robinson. You might be surprised how much overlap there is between strength and conditioning considerations in the swimming world and the powerlifting/bodybuilding world as Keenan and I note. We also delve into some advanced recovery modalities used by athletes training at this level in part 2 which will air as episode 154 - tune back in for all the action.
