In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Director of Performance at Melbourne Storm, Lachlan Penfold. Lachlan has an incredible CV with clubs including Golden State Warriors (NBA), Sydney Roosters (NRL) and the Brisbane Lions (AFL). After an incredible year at Golden State when he was there as Head of Physical Performance and Sports Medicine, naturally his work in the NBA was a topic we delved deep into. I hope you enjoy the episode.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Lachlan Penfold (background, experience and current role)
  • Lessons learned from the NBA
  • Recovery methods
  • Communicating effectively with coaches
  • Injury risk reduction strategies
  • Developing change of direction speed in rugby league
    • How that differs in basketball
