The Future of Sports Training

I recently caught up with trainer Shawn Myszka from Explosive Edge Athletics and discussed the future of sports training. Shawn has a passion for not just getting outstanding results with the athletes he works with, but also understanding the science behind the sports.

In this interview we discuss a variety of topics including what is going wrong with athletic development today, what can be done to improveit, as well as the use of science to better understand how an athletes training is progressing.

I have broken the interview up into 3 shorter files to make it more convenient for you to listen to. Also I have to apologize for the sound, I was having headphone issues when we spoke so I had to use my speakers which resulted the echo.
