In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I have the unbelievable pleasure of speaking with Joel Jaimeson. Joel has been the ‘go-to guy’ when it comes to conditioning for a number of years now. As soon as I read his book, Ultimate MMA Conditioning, I knew I had to get him on the podcast. I would recommend the book to anyone, whether they’re involved in combat sports or team sports, there are so many transferable principles in the book.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Joel Jamieson (experience, background and current role[s])
  • Ultimate MMA conditioning and 8 weeks out
  • Classifications of ‘conditioning’
  • Importance of aerobic work for explosive athletes. What’s the benefit?
  • Periodising conditioning for fighters and team sport athletes
  • Peaking and tapering
  • Your thoughts on MAS
  • Recovery and HRV
