In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Director of Science and Medicine at Adelaide Crows, Steve Saunders. As well as being in his role at the Crows, Steve is the founder of Kanga tech, a tool used for the testing and monitoring of isometric and eccentric exercise. Steve is an incredibly intelligent practitioner with 8 years experience working in AFL with North Melbourne Football Club and his current employer, Adelaide Crows. Given Steve’s expertise in isometric training, we naturally focused on this heavily as part of this episode.

Hope you enjoy this episode with Steve Saunders. If you did enjoy this episode, you may also enjoy these from Luke Jenkinson and Jack Hickey.
