Glen and I are joined today by Rich Voss of Voss on Track Coaching. Rich is a highly accomplished track cycling racer and coach. Rich is a 5x masters world champion, 14x masters national champion, and he has coached 5 masters world champions plus many masters national champions. And, Rich has set 5 masters world records over the years.
Yeah, Rich knows power: how to train with power, how to build and recruit fast-twitch muscle fibers, how to get the most out of what you got from “mom and dad”. But that’s not all, Rich is a master at athletic longevity….knowing how to stay in the athletic game for a long time by focusing on camaraderie and health as the basis for long-term high performance and enthusiasm for sports.
Be sure to listen to the entire episode as Rich offers his best advice for improving your sprint near the end of our talk. It is definitely worth your time.
In our talk with Rich, we discuss the following topics (in order):
- Muscle Fiber trainability
- VO2 Max training
- Goals vs. interests
- Time management
- Gym work
- Building a better sprint, even if you are not a sprinter.
I think you’ll find it interesting, and you might even pick-up a few tricks for getting stronger on the bike.
