Pacey Performance Podcast #202 - Ramsey Nijem (Head Performance and Strength & Conditioning Coach at the Sacramento Kings)
In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head Performance & Strength & Conditioning Coach at the Sacramento Kings, Ramsey Nijem. Ramsey has spoken at a number of events over the summer on the topic of training load monitoring in the NBA so I thought it would be great to build on hem insights in a podcast. He has recently completed his doctorate on the same subject and it was great to get his insights into the NBA. Enjoy.
