Episode 6: Pete McKnight

Pete McKnightPete McKnight is now Director of sport science and coaching for HINTSA Performance, as well as chairman of the UKSCA. Pete discusses how he’s enjoying his new role, what this involves on a daily basis and we get to have a good discussion about S&C in Alpine Skiing, cultural challenges, logistical challenges, his approach to strength training through the winter as well as ACL risk in skiing and what that means for the S&C coach. Later on I discuss a really interesting TED Talk from Amy Cuddy and as always round up CPD & job opportunities.
