In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to 1st Team Fitness Coach at Leeds United Football Club, Benoit Delaval. Leeds United have taken the Premier League by storm this year. They are currently sat 9th in the league, are unbeaten at home against the top 6 and have overcome the accusation that they would start to slump towards the end of the season. Their intensity is unwavering. But how do they train to live up to such a demanding philosophy week after week?
