Jake Schuster is a PhD Student working primarily with New Zealand womens 7s rugby. He has arrived at this post via stints with Cressey Performance and the Netherlands Olympic Federation. In this episode of the podcast we talked about his experiences of working in multiple sports in a variety of different countries, the importance of sprinting and other variables to 7s performance, and the value of his PhD study to the field.
We also discussed some notable individuals within the strength and conditioning field, and why he listens to them. This is a great podcast for sprinting or sport science geeks, but even novice coaches will be able to get a lot from this episode on career development, building relationships and how to be a truly effective coach.
