In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking with Strength & Power Coach at the Brisbane Lions, Bryn Abad. Bryn comes with a wealth of experience in rugby union, netball, and more recently AFL. I must thank Stu Mitchell for introducing me to Bryn and spreading the good word on the podcast.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Bryn Abad (background, experience & current role)
  • The importance of working closely with the head coach
  • Physical capacity building & identifying athlete requirements
  • Planning a successful season – How was this done in netball?
  • The importance of the first few weeks to set up a successful season
  • The psychology of working with female athletes compared to male – different emphasis when it comes to physical characteristics?

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.
