Episode 70: Andy McDonald & Ben Ashworth chat to Clive Brewer for a part-2 conversation following the part-1 we recorded for episode 65. Clive is a Performance Specialist in Applied sports science, strength and conditioning and integrated sports medicine. Clive has a wealth of experience delivering high performance programs over a 20+ year career applying evidence-informed practise in elite sports. Clive has enjoyed multiple roles in the UK and more recently stateside at the Toronto Blue Jays and Columbus Crew. This episode with Clive focusses on evidence based practice, technology and more using practical case studies for context. 

In this episode Andy, Ben and Clive discuss:

  • Evidence based practise applied in sport
  • Matching the level of evidence to the level of performance
  • Implementing change 
  • Early adoption verses sunken cost fallacy 
  • Force diagnostics for performance
  • Absence of longitudinal data 
  • Using typical asymmetry to benchmark RTP / KPI’s
