No notes for slide. Christian thibaudeau black book of training secrets 1. When we get a lot of feedback about a particular article or a contributor, we pay attention. After Christian Thibaudeau published a few articles with us, the message we received from readers was pretty clear: "We want to hear more from that guy!
He's successfully trained a wide array of athletes from Olympic lifters and strongmen to hockey players and figure skaters. He's also a competitive Olympic weightlifter, a football coach, and is completing his M. Judging from his articles so far at T-mag, he also knows a heck of a lot about packing on mass.
We decided to sit down with Thibaudeau and pick his brain about a variety of topics. Testosterone: Let's start off with some personal history. What's your athletic background and how did that lead to you becoming a coach yourself? Christian Thibaudeau: I was the kid that nobody ever selected for dodgeball in grade school.
You know the type: skinny-fat with no athletic ability, much less physical capacities. The sad thing is that I loved sports. I watched every type of sport there was on TV, day in and day out. I loved athletics so much but was about the worst athlete in the world! T: I've seen you lift and obviously a lot has changed!
What happened? CT: When I turned 11, I decided that enough was enough. I actually started doing push- ups, sit-ups and other such exercises every day.
From that moment on I was hooked on training! In high school I was able to make the football team as a receiver. I was about 13 years old and would train every lunch hour.
When I look back I must say that I started my training career doing exactly the opposite of what all the others did. Most guys start off training only their upper body; I only worked my legs. I reasoned that as a receiver I only needed strong legs. By the time I turned 17 I was a trainaholic! I was playing linebacker and trained every chance I had. In college I really started to train intelligently. Ironically, there wasn't a day in which I wouldn't curse my lack of talent.
Today I actually think of it as a blessing in disguise. I realized that I liked training more than playing football. So after my "career" was over I turned to Olympic lifting.
I also competed in strongmen competitions. T: What do you do now as a coach? What's your week like? CT: My schedule varies during the year. During the season most leave for their respective team. We keep in touch but I don't train them directly. I also train football players in my group. On some days I have 15 to 20 athletes training together. That makes for a very positive and motivating atmosphere.
In the winter my clientele is mostly comprised of football players and figure skaters. As I said, I always loved athletes and I consider any chance I get to work with them a blessing, regardless of their level. T: Judging from your training photos, I'm guessing you're now one strong and powerful S. What are your best lifts?
I can't compete with elite powerlifters as far as the deadlift, squat, and bench press are concerned and I started Olympic lifting too late to be an international force, but I have no weakness. I've cleaned kg lbs from blocks, power cleaned kg lbs from the hang for four reps, clean and jerked Nothing to write home about, but it does show some strength balance. T: Well, you may not be an "international force," but that's pretty damn impressive to most people!
Switching gears, you once wrote that aerobic conditioning was overrated for boxers. What about everyone else? My athletes never do any aerobic work. However, they'll do a lot of 50 to 60 seconds sprints while pulling a light sled, lots of m running with short rest intervals and lots of HIIT type running.
I feel these training methods are much more sport specific and more effective at burning body fat. You should see the body of hockey player Alex Tremblay, the leading scorer in Canadian University Hockey. Most natural bodybuilding competitors look like Fat Albert next to him! T: You've also written about something called non-functional hypertrophy. Tell us about that. Mel C. Siff is probably one of the first to have explained this concept.
More recently Brian Haycock has also brushed the subject. Basically, non-functional hypertrophy refers to gains in muscle size that aren't associated with an improved capacity to produce force. That could either be due to hypertrophy of the non-contractile elements of the muscle structure sarcoplasm, collagen, etc. T: And in English that would mean…..
