November 1, 2018

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Strength Coach at Louisiana State University, Boo Schexnayder. Boo is an absolute legend when it comes to track and field having come through a similar pathway to many who have been on the podcast with being a former physical education teacher. Boo speaks incredibly clearly on the topic of plyometrics and sprint training which compliment previous podcasts that have touched on the area such as Jason Hettler, Dan Pfaff and James Wild. Enjoy.
