In this episode PJ opens up on his fascination with the training process, and his S&C and performance coaching career to date, which is fascinating and inspiring. PJ tells us what makes great coaches to create buy-in and communicate with athletes - and why adaptability and curiosity is so important. We talk programming, exercise selection and specificity, mindset and efficiency of habits.
It is fascinating hearing PJ's transformation from 'coach' to education with XPT, and why systemisation is crucial for success. Also - how he differentiates between performance and high performance.
