In this episode of EvelChat Derek gets a few things off his mind & then discusses eccentric training with Dr. Mike Young of AthleticLab a sport training center in Carey, NC that works with athletes from all along the sport development continuum, from novice youth athletes to elite professionals. Mike's experience in Olympic & professional sport is hard to match, having worked with various pro sport teams as performance director, biomechanist & performance coach. Mike's full bio and his sprint acceleration lecture can be found here.
