Triphasic Training for Sport
You know the name. You’ve seen his work. Longtime coach, academic, and author, Cal Dietz [@Cal.Dietz] joins us this week to talk Triphasic with The Crew. Familiarize yourself with the content by heading to the Calvin Dietz YouTube channel and going full nerd. It won’t surprise you that the efficacy of Triphasic and any power program is hugely dependent on proper nutrition and recovery. How tight is too tight for great power potential and where is the happy median for optimal muscle contractions?
Cal brings a ton of knowledge and case study to the table as he discusses the optimal ranges of motion for sport. What about the quarter squat and knees over toes position primes athletes for power? Additionally, his experience tinkering with loads and percentages may challenge what you thought you knew about working within a certain range for speed work. If you had over $100,000 worth of testing equipment to delve into the individual adaptation of each of your athletes, you might be half as smart as this week’s guest.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.

A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
