Historic Performance Podcast #52 - Dr. Hugh Fullagar


In the 52nd episode of the Historic Performance Podcast, I interview Dr. Hugh Fullagar. Dr. Fullagar is a Sports Science Coordinator with the University of Oregon American Football team.

I first learned of Dr. Fullagar from the Seattle Sounders sports science team when they announced that he will be presenting at this year's conference on Adapting to New High-Performance Environments: Learning the ‘Soft Skills’ and Building Relationships. After reviewing his research and talking to previous guests, I knew that I had to bring him on the podcast. I am honored that he accepted the invite.

In this episode, Dr. Fullagar talks about building relationships, how sports science fits into an American football environment, recovery & nutrition, and what is on the horizon in terms of sports science at Oregon.
