In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Sports Performance Scientist, Robin Thorpe. This is part 2 of my chat with Robin so if you haven’t checked out part 1, you can do so HERE. In this episode, we move away from his time at Manchester United and focus on his time working with Olympic sprinters and the topic that Robin has become world-renowned for, performance recovery. The discussion around speed training for team sports may ruffle a few feathers but it’s all in the aid of creating better discussion.

In this episode we discussed…

  • Who is Robin Thorpe (background, education, and current role)
  • Where the industry is at
    • Specialist generalist
    • Are we losing sight of good science?
  • Speed training in team sports
    • Is it becoming an obsession?
  • Performance recovery
  • Why leave Man United to work in Olympic sport?
Robin can be found on Twitter @DrRobinThorpe and on Instagram @dr.robinthorpe
