In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head Performance & Strength & Conditioning Coach at the Sacramento Kings, Ramsey Nijem. Ramsey has spoken at a number of events over the summer on the topic of training load monitoring in the NBA so I thought it would be great to build on hem insights in a podcast. He has recently completed his doctorate on the same subject and it was great to get his insights into the NBA. Enjoy.

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Ramsey Nijem (background, education and current role)
  • Weight room
    • Managing loads in season
    • Use of technology
    • Identifying and mitigating common injury risk factors
  • Sports science in the US

    • Where is it going?
  • On court
    • Keeping players who don’t get minutes fit & fresh
    • Use of technology to manage workloads
