Pacey Performance Podcast

Conditioning vs fitness. A paradigm shift in professional football with Shayne Murphy (Performance Coach Consultant)

January 14, 2021

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Performance Coach Consultant, Shayne Murphy. This episode is absolutely incredible! Case studies, reflections, challenging his own thoughts and beliefs, it had the lot. Shayne has a really interesting story, coming over from Ireland to go onto work at one of the biggest clubs in the world and then leaving just 18 months ago to be a full-time consultant. We cover developing quality movement in footballers, the transition from full-time employee to consultant as well as changing the way he think about rehab, and much more.   

In this episode we discussed...

  • Who is Shayne Murphy (background, education, and current role)
  • Consultancy v full-time
    • Lessons and reflections
    • Advice for others thinking about it
  • Human movement
    • How an S&C coach views 'good movement' vs a coach
    • Being guided by the style of play
  • Injuries
    • Energy leaks

      • Identifying where they are from profiling?
    • Hamstring rehabilitation case study
    • Identifying the problem, not focusing on the symptom
  • Conditioning v fitness
    • What is the difference
    • Designing sessions and drills to meet the demands of the game & style of play
