In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast sees me speaking with senior lecturer at Edith Cowan University, Dr Sophia Nimphius. After reading Sophia’s chapter in High Performance Training for Sports and subsequently reading a lot of her work since, I had to get her on the podcast. Not only was this a great episode, but Sophia becomes the first female on the podcast, not to say I haven’t tried though!

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Sophia Nimphius and how did she get to where she is today
  • Ways of testing for ‘agility’
  • How can we detect which physical quality is lacking by performing COD tests
  • Programming to enhance ‘agility’
  • Time spent focusing on hitting correct positions in COD
  • Developing ‘agility’ in youths & adolescents
  • Biggest considerations when training females
  • Coaching the female athlete
