Re-Thinking Strength Training for Elite Sport - Gerrit Keferstein - On Order and Kaos of Human Potential
Joe Dolcetti is a futurist and an innovator in the field of human performance with an intimate and innate understanding of human movement and flow. He has a conditioning training, coaching and sport science career that has spanned over 31 years around the globe and has had the very fortunate opportunity to work with and learn from many of the world’s top sporting programs. This has given him a truly global understanding of human adaptation to training.
As a creative force and leader in the field of high performance Joe conceptualized, developed and launched the LILA EXOGEN Exoskeleton line, the world’s most advanced wearable resistance technology which is rapidly gaining ground as a potentially game changing transference tool for specific strengthening and movement coaching. Exogen is being hailed as ‘ground-breaking’ and ‘revolutionary’ by top coaches and sport scientists globally including the renowned Dr. John Cronin who currently oversees LILA’s world class research team at AUT – SPRINZ.
In this episode I discuss with him :
* integrating kaos into teaching and athletic performance
* the evolution of strength training for elite sports
* how to create a world class performance facility
* using innovative loading principles to improve speed and power in elite athletes
* a new approach to improve motor learning while ‘playing the game’
* his boxing skills & Malaysian thunderstorms

Gerrit Keferstein: Welcome back, everybody. Gerrit Keferstein here. It’s been a real busy week for me. I’ve been traveling a lot and I’m so happy to be back in my current base here back in Sonora on Bali. I’ve been to Adelaide, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong all within 13 days. in Adelaide I was brought in by Tom Patrick of the South Australian Sports Institute. Really I had an awesome time there. They brought me in to consult on regeneration but really I felt like I learned more from them than they probably learned from me. It was really great experience there. I spent some time with the track cycling team of Australia and with coach Lynn Monroe and she does a fantastic job there, managing the training process and managing communicating with the athletes. I was really, really impressed by that. I had a couple of beers with the sports physiologists and the strength coaches and it was just great to share their view on things and share my view on things too. Then we went to Singapore. The reason for that was not work but it was fun. I had my first Brazilian Jujitsu competition and it was awesome. It was really cool. It was awesome for me to be back competing again since I stopped playing football. It’s been five years since I last really competed, not in training but real competition. So, that was real cool for me. I had a silver medal. It’s actually perfect. I lost one match and I won a match. So, it’s a good balance. The Brooklyn Monk told me it’s always good to win one match and lose one match. Then you don’t have to deal with being undefeated or having not ever won one match. So, it was actually perfect. It was a lot of fun. And then I went to Kuala Lumpur to the Olympic Council of Malaysia and I visited Joe Dolcetti there, which this podcast is about. I’m going to tell you a little bit more about Joe in a short while.
