#11 – A Chat with Peter Nathan: Starting Strength Coach, Nationally Ranked Powerlifter, Crossfit Games Athlete, and Modern Dancer Darin met up with fellow Starting Strength Coach and gifted Masters athlete Peter Nathan at the first annual StrengthCon event in Wichita Falls, TX. Peter is an accomplished athlete, having competed (and set records) in Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting and strengthlifting, Crossfit Games, triathlons, and more. Peter is also a strength coach, and attests to the importance of strength training for the Masters population – both athletes and people just trying to be healthy. Peter talks about the progression of his athletic career, discovering Crossfit early on and balancing the performance demands of the program with the need to stay strong and injury free. Like many Games athletes, Peter trains primarily for strength until a few months out from competition, at which point he starts to work in conditioning. He’s also learned an important lesson about his Crossfit experience – that giving 100% every workout can be detrimental to long-term progress. Consistency and not missing workouts, or screwing up workouts by overdoing previous workouts, are the keys progress. Crystal 2018-07-10T21:33:58+00:00 Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!
