This week on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher and Spreaker, STT interviews Paul Chandler. Paul is the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the baseball program and the Gator softball program at the University of Florida. His responsibilities include designing and implementing year-round strength, speed and conditioning workouts for the Gators in the Griffin/Oakley Strength and Conditioning Center. Chandler guides each student-athlete through an individual training program designed to enhance strength as well as explosive power, speed, agility, endurance, coordination, balance, flexibility and mental toughness. In addition to working with UF’s baseball program, which made three-consecutive NCAA College World Series appearances for the first time in school history from 2010-12 under his direction and claimed consecutive Southeastern Conference titles in 2010 and 2011, Chandler picked up strength and conditioning duties working with UF’s softball squad prior to the 2011 season. His work played a key role last season as the Gators captured the SEC regular-season and tournament titles en route to a berth at the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City and notched the team’s fifth 50-win season.
