In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Director of High Performance at USA Swimming, Keenan Robinson. Keenan has worked with one of the most famous and decorated athletes of all time, Michael Phelps, so it was great to chat to Keenan about his training and much talked about mindset.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Keenan Robinson (background, education and current role)?
  • Programming differences between strokes and distances
  • What coaches should bear in mind when moving from coaching dryland athletes to swimmers
  • Mitigating injuries in swimmers
  • Who influences Keenan’s practice

Keenan can be found on Twitter @kkrirsh
