Coach Hatch is arguably the most successful weightlifting coach in the nation.  NFL Record Holders, NBA Superstars, Olympians in several different sports... He's coached em all.  I met him in 2012, after we had won the Crossfit Games for the first time.  He immediately instilled in me the fact that you NEVER sacrifice technique for added weight.  His gym is a factory for developing dynamic strength, power, and speed.  He is an incredible story teller and even better coach.  Enjoy the show.

Since beginning to work with Jason Khalipa in 2013, Chris Hinshaw has quickly become regarded as the most successful endurance coach in the sport of Crossfit.  In the 2014 Games he worked with over two dozen individual Games athletes.  He works with athletes such as Rich Froning, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Mat Fraser, Lindsey Valenzuela, etc.  All the best in other words.  
 
When we first met, we shared the common belief that Crossfit athletes are not training their endurance efficiently and in many cases are not reaching their potential, not even close.  Traditional Crossfit workouts predominantly increase your VO2max, which after 1 year or so reaches it's genetic potential.  What gets undertrained then is the athlete's lactate threshold, which basically means the highest intensity one can sustain without crashing and burning.  That number can increase dramatically and consistently.  The problem is that to train this, one must run at a specific heart rate.  One must train at or slightly faster than his/her lactate threshold to push that number higher.  All out efforts, like Crossfit workouts, do not achieve this goal.  
 
Chris explains this problem and how he gets some of the fittest people on the planet, even fitter.

I met Rob MacDonald (Bobby Maximus) in 2011 as he programmed for our team the first year I went to the Crossfit Games.  He also trained two individuals that year, Tommy Hackenbruck and Taylor Richards-Lindsey.  We were a hard working group if nothing else.  However, when Rob would show up to train us on occasion, I remember thinking that every workout was the hardest one I'd ever done.  He communicates with athletes in a way that pushes them to their limits, and he is good at finding each person's buttons.  

 

Before accepting a job at Gym Jones, he fought in the UFC in the Light Heavyweight Division.  At Gym Jones he is the general manager, and it is there that he has worked with NFL players, professional climbers and skiers, and many more.  Physically, this guy is an absolute freak. He can bench 315 for a set of 20, back squats close to 500, and his strength isn't even his strong suit.  

 

His strong suit is his engine.  He has done some ridiculous things on an airdyne.  He has biked for 88 calories in 1 minute, and 900 in 30 minutes!!!!!  If a guy can get 300 in 10 minutes, he is considered to be in great great shape.  To do that 3x in a row is unbelievable.  

 

Enjoy the show.
