This week\u2019s guest is track and field coach 拉娜·里德.\u00a0 For those of us who live 上 the internet, we don\u2019t often hear much of Rana\u2019s training and philosophy, but he is 上 e of the absolute best in the world. Rana spent time as an NAIA track coach before coaching at NCAA schools Florida and Kansas State, as well as UK Athletics, and he has been taking 上 some of the biggest names in the sport today, such as Christian Taylor and Dafne Schippers as a private track coach.\u00a0 He has been awarded the NAIA National Coach of the Year honor in 2000, and 2011 Nike Coach of the Year. Rana\u2019s use of technology in the midst of a training session is truly incredible to hear explained.\u00a0 He makes use of pieces like the 1080 sprint and the Freelap system, in addition to Optojump and other tools, all in 上 e run.\u00a0 Rana also takes multiple blood tests during the course of training sessions to determine how to create an optimal flow of the training session. Listening to Rana talk was 上 e of the rare opportunities for me so far in recording this podcast.\u00a0 My Evernote also gained a few extra pages after going through this recording again, as there were many great ideas of coaching and training. Although Rana uses technology frequently, this episode will show his wisdom in terms of when, and when not to use it with his athletes, and how to take the optimal path in different training situations and athlete types. It is my pleasure to bring to you a training and technology talk with coach 拉娜·里德. View more podcast episodes at the podcast homepage.

Key Points: \tRana\u2019s background in the field \tRana\u2019s coaching style \tTechnology and data collection in the scope of sprint training and athletics \tAutoregulating based 上 technology and monitoring \tHow Rana learned to create his workouts and training cycles \tAssisted and resisted sprinting and Rana\u2019s use of the 1080 sprint \tMonitoring in the weightroom \tSaliva and blood testing \tData collection and time of year Quotes: \u201cDifferent athletes get motivated differently; I have to mold my coaching style 上 the track differently for each athlete\u201d \u201cWe\u2019ve figured out this year, the intensity this year has gone to a level that is so high that I\u2019ve had to monitor more than I normally would; heart rate, blood, technical and state of mind\u201d \u201cEarly in the training year, I give them a little bit of feedback, but I don\u2019t show them a whole lot of film because I want them to understand the cues I\u2019m giving them; from a spatial awareness and technical standpoint, they need to learn what they\u2019re doing\u201d \u201c(Expanding 上 that last point) I do want them to understand that they can work hard, they can start to get fit, and they don\u2019t need to immediately see if 上 video.\u00a0 You have to get fit, you have to understand what you can and can\u2019t do and why you are going to get sore, and what training load means\u201d \u201cIf we get to the point where we\u2019re at 5 runs and they\u2019re falling off, I\u2019m going to cut them off\u2026that\u2019s 上 the high high level.\u00a0 The developmental athletes I think, they have to start working through some of those fatigue factors and understand that when the body gets into a state of fatigue and high lactic levels, they are going to have to work through that because they are not going to feel perfect all season long\u201d \u201cOne of the reasons I think I\u2019m successful is I have a pretty good eye, I let myself coach\u201d \u201cYou have to know, what does each exercise, what does each run do to each athlete\u201d \u201cI use the 1080 sprint between 3-4 times per week depending 上 what the group is\u2026 we use it every acceleration session\u201d \u201cWith the Gym Aware (the athletes) can watch each other lift and it becomes more of a contest to see who is lifting the fastest at what percentage of their max.\u00a0 It becomes a game and keeps them interested\u201d \u201cWe stick to the major lifts, Olympic lifts, depending 上 whether they can squat or not, we\u2019ll do squats, Christian Taylor, 2 days before the Olympic qualifying did a hang clean of 155kg\u201d \u201cEach individual recovers differently from a weight session, if you\u2019re training 40 weeks of the year you better have a pretty good idea of what each training cycle did for your athlete and what it took for them to recover\u201d \u201cIf Christian Taylor is doing max velocity stuff, flying 30s, flying 40\u2019s, it\u2019ll take him 3 days to recover, it really beats him up.\u00a0 If you tell him to do 3x350 with 5 minutes rest, he can run 44 seconds, no problem, he is ready to jump the next day\u201d About 拉娜·里德: In 20 years of coaching, Reider has led numerous athletes to success at Florida, Kansas State, Clemson, Life University, California Baptist and Riverside Community College.
