Pacey Performance Podcast #292 - Loren Landow (Head of Strength & Conditioning at Denver Broncos)

May 14, 2020

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head of Strength & Conditioning at Denver Broncos, Loren Landow. I am absolutely honoured to speak to someone I have admired from a far for a long time. I don't normally get nervous when jumping on a podcast but I certainly did when seeing Loren on the screen looking back at me. We talked all things movement and many of the talking points were based off some presentations Loren has given in the past, particularly his UKSCA talk, 'Movement mastery: "the art of multi directional speed" which was excellent and is well worth a watch.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Loren Landow.
