Pacey Performance Podcast #234 - Dan Cleather (Programme Leader for the MSc in S&C at St Mary’s University)

April 4, 2019

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Programme Leader for the MSc in Strength & Conditioning at St Mary's University, Dan Cleather. Over the last 12 months, Dan has been creating a bit of a stir on Twitter with his view on a few topics. These comments have created some excellent and insightful discussion involving some of the best minds in the industry. With that in mind and given I know Dan personally from my time at St Mary's, it made complete sense to get him on the podcast to have a good chat.

If you enjoyed this episode, maybe you will enjoy this episode with Franco Impellizzeri.

Hope you enjoy this episode with Dan Cleather.
