In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am chatting to football physiologist at ASPETAR in Qatar, Richard Akenhead. Richard's name often gets brought up when chatting about GPS and load monitoring when I am out and about in my day job.

I would encourage you to check out Richard's research in the link below.

In this episode you will learn -

  • Who is Richard Akenhead (background, education and current role)
  • Current research with accelerometers for player management & rehab
  • Creating the right environment during rehab with regards to constraints and context
