Bo comes on the podcast with an incredible CV, initially working in college sport at University of Michigan and recently moving onto working alongside Duncan French (guest #162 on the Pacey Performance Podcast) at the UFC Performance Institute. In this episode we were able to go DEEP on the exact process that Bo goes through when designing programmes for fighters competing in UFC.
