This week we host Rob Miller. He's a competitive climber, Starting Strength Coach, and author of The Map of Athletic Performance. If the name rings a bell it's because Rob has been in the game for a long time. Not only has he been making his way up mountains for 25 years, he was a pioneering figure in CrossFit around 2007. As a sports specific athlete, Rob's main motivation for training came from the desire to dominate climbing.
What were the influences for Rob's development of The Map of Athletic Performance? As he candidly discusses, the simple yet comprehensive diagram was a way to combat public stupidity and personal frustration. The conversation eventually leads to Rob's affirming stance on strength development, even in sports whose demands are highly specialized.
Rob Miller is a lifelong advocate for smart training principles, including limiting exposure to high volume and low intensity. His anecdotes and research surrounding the topic are eye opening, particularly if you compete in a fringe sport.
This knowledge and so much more on this week's Power Athlete Radio.
