On episode 71 of the David Grey Rehab Podcast we welcome Vas Krishnan, a super smart guy with a background in human movement.

We discuss topics such as sprinting, the gait cycle, plyometrics, compensations in the gait cycle, and diversity in the industry. We also talk about Vas’s various roles in the industry and the importance of not being driven too insane. 

This episode is for anyone interested in human movement (which I’m assuming is you!!) and is  loaded with some super useful information.

Vas will also be doing a presentation for the DGR Interactive member’s site very shortly too, so stay tuned!
