Who Do I Coach:
I coach 19 throwers at Louisiana State University. They cover all events. Most notably are Rodney Brown 64.68m discus throw and Tori Bilss 17.49m. They all train at Louisiana State University.
Our track/throws field/weight room is in one facility. Off season training goals are to build a strength, mobility and technical proficiency. We do throw, however other than the hammer, we do not begin technical sessions until October 1st. Our throws sessions off season are where we make our technical changes, develop specific strength, specific speed and skill acquisition.
As far as weight lifting, we utilize all of the olympic lifts, many squat and press movements as well as ballistic lifts throughout the year. During the season we drop the squatting movements and many of the presses and focus on olympics and ballistics. The only thing I will alter off season is training volume for the younger throwers. No new equipment used. We have everything we need as far as facilities and equipment.
Also, our weather is conducive to throwing and training all year long. We just started our indoor season this week. To relax my girlfriend and I jog lift and listen to jazz music in New Orleans. I hope to visit the beach in the summer.
For 2015 and 2016 I would like to contribute to winning NCAA team championships and hopefully coach my first olympian. Thanks for the questions and interest!
