In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Head of Strength & Conditioning at Orlando Magic in the NBA, Bill Burgos. As President of the NBSCA (National Basketball Strength & Conditioning Committee) and current member of the NBA Sports Science Committee, Bill has a wealth of experience working in an around the NBA. Bill is actually the first practitioner I have had on the podcast who currently works in the NBA so it was a pleasure to get him on for a chat.

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Bill Burgos (background, experience, and current role)?
  • Military influences and their effect on your current practice
  • The role of the S&C coach in the NBA
    • How that has changed over the last 5 years
  • Your training philosophy as an S&C coach
  • Influence of sports science and how that has changed your practice
  • Managing guys in the off season
    • Information that is/isn’t given to player
  • Keeping things fresh in the gym and on the court
