Sprinting and all that it encompasses is always a topic that gets people interested and with the unbelievable information which is sat there in the archives, I thought it was an amazing opportunity to bring that together and release it as one episode. There will be future sprint masterclass episodes which feature JB Morin, Derek Evely etc etc so this is definitely NOT an exclusive list which it comes to episodes which focus on this topic. However, this episode does feature names such as Derek Hansen, Dan Pfaff, Jason Hettler, James Wild and Jonas Dodoo. Hope you enjoy!

  • Derek Hansen

    • Microdosing
  • Jason Hettler
    • Periodisation
