In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Professor of Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine, Franco Impellizzeri. I am absolutely delighted to welcome Franco Impellizzeri to the podcast. Anyone who has read any research into soccer, sRPE or training load over the last 20 years will know of Franco’s work and after a 10 year spell out of sports science, he is firmly back in the game. In this episode Franco challenges many dogmas such as training load management for injury prevention, acute chronic workload ratio and periodisation.

If you enjoyed this episode, maybe you will enjoy these with Aaron Coutts and Hugh Fullagar.

Hope you enjoy this episode with Franco Impellizzeri.
