In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to legend of the game, Mike Boyle. Mike’s book Advances in Functional Training was the first S&C book that I bought back in 2012 and was also one of the main influences behind why I started the podcast itself. It was great to get such a legend on the show and with everything that Mike has done over the years it was a real privilege to pick his brains and have a chat.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Mike Boyle (background, experience and current role[s])
  • Why Mike doesn’t back squat his athletes anymore
  • Why Mike doesn’t use the hip thrust
  • Mike’s thoughts on Nordics
  • Why static stretching is still important

Mike can be found on Twitter @BodyByBoyle

This episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast is sponsored by Vald Performance, the team behind the NordBord and the new Groinbar, a hip and groin strength measuring solution. They can be found at and you can get more information on the groin bar at and on Twitter @groinbar.
