Historic Performance Podcast #6 - Nathan Bullock


In the sixth episode of the Historic Performance Podcast, I interview Nathan Bullock.  He is the former Lead Academy Strength & Power Coach at Manchester City and former Head of Sports Science at Calgary Foothills Soccer Club in Alberta, Canada.  Currently, Nathan is a lecturer at the University of Salford.

Jason Trembley from The Strength Guys introduced me to Nathan earlier this year and highly recommended that I bring him on the podcast.  Of course, I listened to Jason since he is someone that I greatly respect and is an incredibly smart S&C coach.  

What makes Nathan unique is that after working for a top club like Manchester City that he gladly accepted a unique challenge in Canada to create a sports science department from scratch.  Throughout our conversation, you will realize that it didn't turn out to be an easy endeavor.  

Here is a brief outline of what we covered in the show - 

  • Nathan Bullock's Background
  • How he landed an internship at Manchester City & turned it into a full-time role
  • His role & responsibilities as a Lead Academy Strength Coach at Man City
