    Hey guys great podcast once again. I wanted to comment on the beach training. I’m an agility trainer and on occasion when the opportunity presents itself I do train on the sand. For the most part I agree with you that you really cant develop power, speed or explosiveness in the sand. Agility though can be greatly improved when emphasizing proper foot placement, lower body control, upper body control, quick feet and “drop & drive” technique. The sand training recruits muscles and sensitizes the nervous system so when the athlete then moves to a solid surface the stability and ability of the athlete is much more fundamentally sound and stable. Its basically resistance training in an dynamic fashion. Have you had the opportunity to train in sand and gauge the results? Thanks for allowing me to post.
