Todd Bumgardner - Strength Coach - Writer - Presenter
What's up? Thanks for stopping in. I'm Todd Bumgardner, MS, CSCS and I'm a bit of a strength training nomad. Over the past ten years I've traveled to work with, and learn from, the best in the fitness industry while earning a reputation as one of the best young strength coaches and presenters in the United States. Along the way I've picked up and put down a few kilotons. I've also wrestled a bear and soothed a jaguar with a broken paw. But mostly I've helped a lot of people--from NFL linebackers, to housewives--train harder and get stronger. I created this site to help as many people as possible reach their training goals and live a bigger, stronger life. We're all in this together so let's Build. Stronger. People. When I'm not coaching, I fancy myself a writer, a budding fly fisherman and a guy that knows how to tell a good beer from lackluster poppycock!
Coaching: Our Paradigm
- Find the bright spots: tell them what they're doing well first.
- Clearly identify problems. Communicate this using the least amount of info possible.
- Direct the change by cueing externally. Clearly define the crucial actions.
- Dramatically reinforce positive change.
