Stanford Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Kevin Tolbert – Getting Strong

The Kevin Tolbert Files

Kevin Tolbert is the Head Strength Coach at Stanford University.

He graduated from the United States Naval Academy where he played running back for the Midshipmen.

As a young man he performed 23 reps with 375 lbs on the bench press and performed 30 reps with 600 lbs in the barbell squat. Kevin knows how to Get Strong.

Kevin explains:

This is the ten question exam that I give to our athletes. They receive the correct answers before the test. The answer for each question on the exam is ‘yes’. As you can imagine, as a student athlete, it is hard to get 100% on this test every day, even if you know the answers.
As an athlete you need to get 100% – if you really want to Get Strong.
