Lyndon is a deep thinker of science in sport and nutrition.

He has a masters in high-performance sport science, a bachelor of applied science and uses this as the head of education at JPS. Lyndon is a very thoughtful coach and presenter, which is obvious as soon as you start listening to this episode. We dig into the physiology of getting very very lean and how you can best set yourself up for success.

As mentioned in the episode Lyndon and Jacob from JPS will be hitting up Bath in the UK with Steve and Pascal to present at the Ultimate Contest Prep Seminar. This is essentially the launch of their long-awaited book on contest prep, covering everything you could want to know and more.
