In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking with Bob Alejo, Assistant Athletic Director and Director of S&C at North Carolina State University. I must thank Bob for coming on the podcast and being so open about what he does. Bob has an incredible amount of experience working in the collegiate, professional and private settings so to get him on the podcast was a real honour.

  • Who is Bob Alejo (background, education and current role)
  • Strength as the basis for all development
  • A strength and conditioning coach’s perspective of sports science
  • Training for power or power training especially inexperienced lifters
  • Testing and data analysis driving program design
