I am delighted to be doing a Special Edition of the podcast and its something I have wanted to do for a long time. This episode sees me speaking with Ross Burbeary (Head of Sports Science at Nottingham Forest FC), Nathan Winder (Head of Sports Science at Barnsley FC) & Nick Grantham (strength & conditioning expert). Ross has been on the show before in episode 7 so if you want to check that out, click here. All the these guys are extremely well respected in their own right, so to get them on the phone at the same time was awesome!

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who are Ross, Nick and Nathan and how they got to where they are today
  • What is the state of S&C/sports science in football right now?
  • How to keep players sharp when playing so many games in-season
  • How are strength & power gains maintained when players are playing Saturday/Tuesday on a regular basis
  • When working with large groups, as is the case in football, how does ‘coaching’ change compared to being one on one with a player
  • Injury prevention in football
  • Ways of collecting data to manage fatigue, assess readiness etc, are we actually using this data effectively to guide training design?
  • Systems found to have the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to screening
