His knowledge and implementation of new techniques and training methods have made Vermeil’s programs highly visible and respected throughout the sports world. He has developed successful training programs in a wide variety of sports including football, basketball, baseball and golf.

On this podcast by Robbie Bourke, Coach Vermeil shared a lot of his knowledge and wisdom on many areas of strength and conditioning and coaching.  It’s a long listen at 90 full minutes, and the audio quality may make some audiophiles cringe, but just listen to the content, as always.

  • What was the training book mentioned in the Podcast? Sounded something like Zaborskis Training Principles but I wasn’t for sure. Looking for good reading material and it sounded good.
