Shyam Chavda - Show Notes

In this episode Shyam Chavda and I discuss key performance indicators and the technical model associated with weightlifting performance. Shyam is the technical tutor for sport science at Middlesex University, London. He teaches across multiple degree programmes and acts at the universities head weightlifting coach, plus he is currently a performance scientist for British Weightlifting.
