Episode 011: Preston Greene – Sports Specific Training, Being mentored by Charles Poliquin, and the role of nutrition & supplements in sports performance.

Golf 360

Preston Greene is not your average Strength & Conditioning Coach. While many teenagers were eager to improve their swing, squat, jump shot or bench press, Preston was studying how to get them to do that better. He began studying training at age 14 and has been helping athletes improve ever since. He has worked at some of the most prestigious universities in the country; Clemson, Stanford, University of Arizona, among others, all leading to his current position at University of Florida. Preston has helped countless athletes achieve success at the highest levels from collegiate championships all the way up to the professionals (NHL and NBA) and Olympic ranks. Not only does he hold a degree in health science, but he has a Masters in applied kinesiology and sports management. Preston also holds numerous certifications and memberships including the National Strength & Conditioning Assoc. (NCSA), he has a performance enhancement specialist certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) and one of the most impressive, he is 1 of 16 Internationally Certified PICP (Poliquin Int’l Certification Program) Level 5 Coaches (see the ‘Show Notes’ for a description of this certification). The PICP Level 5 is from his mentor and legendary coach Charles Poliquin’s Group Education. Preston and I have an amazing discussion that revolves around his start in the field at an early age, his apprenticeship under Coach Poliquin and what he’s learned from a lifetime spent in his field. Not only do we discuss sport specific training, but we also get into discussing nutrition and supplements and how in todays nutrient depleted world they are musts if one is perform at the highest levels successfully. This was an awesome interview and Preston made time on 3 separate occasions so we could get it done. He gives a lot of great insight into the world of training and what everyone can do to improve.

10 Things I Learned from Charles Poliquin - Solo Round

The Smart Nutrition Made Simple Show with Ben Brown

Today is my first actual solo podcast episode and I see it only fitting to share with you the top 10 things that I learned from the Strength Sensei - Charles Poliquin, who was a strong mentor for me. 1) The powder community: The majority of the people I know and respect the most in the industry is because of taking Charles courses. It's where I got to validate my ideas, learn what other coaches were doing and just bro out with other like minded peeps. We need community to thrive. 2) You gotta pay to play: I hired CP for a 1-1 consult in 2009. It was $1000 for the hr and, to this day, one of the best decisions I've made for my career. Not because of the consult itself, but because it helped us build rapport. Eventually this led to client referrals, networking opportunities and ultimately new business partnerships, a contract with a major NBA organization and helped me launch and grow the #CompleteEssentials. 3) Teach through storytelling: Charles was a great story teller. Many times he had me dying laughing with some of the stories he'd tell, the attention to detail, and what a great memory he had. It wasn’t the information that resonated, but the way he relayed it that made it stick. 4) Be polarizing: People loved him or hated him, and he owned it and never flinched. He taught me to be ok with putting out content that people may not agree with as well as telling clients what they need, not what they want to hear. 5) The path to success is never linear: CP had a tumultuous ride and while I won't pretend to know too in depth, I do know that his highs were certainly accompanied by plenty of lows. I’m especially saddened because despite his success, I’m confident his best had yet to come... 6) Question everything: Being brought up in an academic household, I learned early on to be analytical (and skeptical). It was the fascinating nature of the Biosignature courses (and my skepticism that ensued) that forced me dig in and find out more about nutrition and supplementation, and ultimately go back to school and to get another degree.  7) Prioritize what really matters: I always had a tremendous amount of respect for Charles and his relationship with his daughter. The way his eyes lit up when he spoke of her. You knew instantly that the hard shell of his physique was nothing but playdough to her every need and to those people in his life he really cared for. 8) How to ask good questions: When I first started taking courses with Charles in 2007, you learned very quickly not to ask dumb questions. He would look at you as if he was trying to melt you with his eyes and the verbal assault was equally penetrating.  9) Give credit where credit is due: CP had a remarkable ability to tell you exactly when and from whom he learned a certain topic, tool or tip. Having had and uncountable number of people plagerize his work to-date, he was especially great about recognizing and respecting those that blazed the trail before him.  10) What you appreciate, appreciates: Charles taught me the power of gratitude to help me attract what I want in my life. A way to focus on opportunity, new possibilities and positivity rather than problems and negativity. "No pissing, no moaning." Thank you Charles. You made an indefinable impact in my life and I only wish I could have shared this with you sooner.
