Primal Endurance Podcast (Brad Kearns) – Brad will be a guest soon on an upcoming episode but don’t wait until then to start listening to his show. Coach Collins is featured on episode #86 of their podcast.
Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast – Trainer Road – (Jonathan Lee) Trainer Road offers an app and subscription with bike trainer workouts with specific plans for any type of bike racing or triathlon distance. Their podcast discusses so many cycling topics and drops important tips so you won’t make as many training, racing, and nutrition mistakes.
Endurance Nation (Rich Strauss & Patrick McCrann) – Rich and Patrick have put together over 50 outstanding training programs for endurance athletes to follow from out season, to sprint distance, to IRONMAN distance with outstanding details, resources, access to sponsor discounts and more. Their members have won the large team division of IRONMAN club scoring for 4 years straight. They also do regular EN Podcasts and interviews with athletes who have had recent success at various races around the world. Coach Collins is featured on episode #621 of their podcast where he talks about his training and race at IRONMAN AZ 2016.
GoSwim.tv (Glenn Mills) – If you would really like to improve your swimming technique then you need to know what good swimming technique looks like. GoSwim.tv has the best collection of world class swimmers doing all the strokes above and below the surface, at race pace and in slow motion and with detailed commentary of what they think about when they swim.
Additionally, there are many drills and focus points for swimmers of all ages to watch and practice on their own to improve.
To improve quickly I feel you need to know what CORRECT technique looks like, and see what YOU actually do (by getting videoed by me) and be able to compare these to see where you can improve.
GoSwim.tv is the site I use when teaching athletes during lessons and also to send out content for athletes to watch or drills to follow.
Please use this DIRECT LINK below to sign-up either for the monthly option ($9.99) or $99/yr.
Once you have a subscription I can add you to my Triathlon Freestyle Channel where I send out weekly videos for you to watch and learn from, and you can watch any other videos you want from the EXTENSIVE library.
I think this can be a key way for you to reach your own “Personal Excellence” in swimming.
Ritter Sports Performance (Chris Ritter) – Chris was a featured guest in episode #4 where we talked about the importance of getting stronger. Subscribing to his strength training program (which is app based so its easy to take to the gym or wherever you do your strength training) will help you get outstanding results.
