⚡️ DR JONATHON WEAKLEY | Velocity Based Training, Academia & Overtraining

Mere Mortals

Dr Jonathon Weakley (https://twitter.com/JonathonWeakle1) is a Lecturer at the Australian Catholic University (ACU), was a Research Associate @ Leeds Beckett University and is trying to make strength & conditioning easier for coaches.

In this conversation I got the chance to ask him a bunch of questions that centred around velocity based training (VBT), the definition of overtraining, why he ventured down this pathway professionally and what has him excited in the next few years.

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
