Pacey Performance Podcast

Resisted sprinting, force velocity profiling, & the importance of isolated foot & ankle training with JB Morin (Professor and Sports Performance Consultant)

February 14, 2019

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Professor and Sports Performance Consultant, JB Morin. I am delighted to welcome JB on the podcast for a part 2 after he appeared over 3 years ago in this episode. JB is an incredible guy and someone who I aim to catch up with in person sometime soon, hopefully. I took some questions on Twitter for this episode and was pleased to have some coaches reach out with their thoughts so thank you to those who did. Hopefully I did JB justice in trying to prize out as much knowledge as I could from JB. I hope you enjoy this episode with JB Morin.
