In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Sports Science Coordinator & Assistant Strength & Conditioning at Miami Dolphins, Adam Lachance. Adam has a fascinating story, coming from a military background and ending up at the Dolphins after studying at the University of Miami. For someone who by his own admission is more or an S&C coach than what we may class as a sports scientist, he is doing an incredible job. Bridging the gap between the two roles and the technical coaches is something we dive deep into during this episode as I feel that this is sometimes missed in conversations about sports technology.
