Kev Paxton of Leicester City FC

Much interest has  been given to Leicester City FC and the unbelievable improvement they’ve had the past couple years. As of this writing, they sit at the top of the Premiership.

One of my last posts gave us a video tour of Leicester FC training grounds and an insider look at what they’re doing on the sports performance side. Here’s more info from their Academy Director Kev Paxton via a recent webinar from Proformance Strength & Conditioning Network.  There’s some top class information in here and I’m excited to meet Kev in a couple weeks. Kev will be speaking on Age Related Performance Benchmarking as part of the Future Leaders Programme at the Proformance Child to Champion: LTAD Conference. I will likewise be presenting at the conference alongside Dr. Rhodri LloydDr. Ian JeffreysDr. Neill Potts, James Baker, and Simon Brundish. To register for the clinic you can REGISTER HERE.
