This edition of the Pacey Performance Podcast sees me chatting with former Louisiana State University coach and former Vancouver Whitecaps first team fitness coach, Mike Young. Mike has a Phd in Biomechanics from Louisiana State University and his highly successful Human Performance Consulting business made him a great guest to have on the Pacey Performance Podcast. He is my ‘go-to guy’ when it comes to speed training. Mike is talking to us from his base at Athletic Lab, his performance gym in North Carolina.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Mike Young and how he got to where he is today
  • How you can work around the culture of soccer
  • Which monitoring tools have been important in his work with the Whitecaps
  • How you can develop speed in soccer
  • How Mike individualises training with players with such different background
  • Who he caters for at Athletic Lab
