In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head Coach at SpeedWorks, Jonas Dodoo. This is an INCREDIBLE episode with Jonas Dodoo focusing on acceleration with sprinters and team sport athletes. We discuss Jonas’ new app, Binary and also dive into the detail on all things acceleration. We could have chatted for hours but unfortunately, we had to stop somewhere and line up a part 2 to cover the rest; game speed, sprint typing and more on Binary. I have been lucky enough to spend a day with Jonas and can say first hand that he has a fantastic eye for detail and there is a reason he has coaches numerous sub 10s sprinters. ENJOY!
