Do you want to train some of the highest performing athletes in the world and keep them at the top of their game? On today’s show, I talk with Dr. Tim DiFrancesco who is the lead strength and conditioning coach for the Los Angeles Lakers.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How he made the leap into professional sports.
  • How is top strength tips can work on every patient/client regardless of age or experience.
  • Why your workout should focus on time under tension and perfect form.
  • How to stimulate muscle growth by increasing volume of work.
  • Why breaking perfect form effects long term performance.
  • How a PT background sets you up for success in the strength and conditioning world.
  • And so much more!


This was a great interview with Tim on how his background as a physical therapist influences his strength and conditioning principles.  I learned a great deal from Tim on this episode and I hope you come away with some great insights to use immediately in your clinical or fitness setting!
