Mind Set Game #18: Weight cutting in combat sports with Danny Lennon

In today’s episode of the Mind Set Game podcast, I sat down with Dany Lennon.

Danny has a formal scientific background in academia, completing a master’s degree (MSc.) in Nutritional Sciences at University College Cork. During this time Danny researched vitamin D, directly under the world-renowned researcher Professor Kevin Cashman.

In addition to that research, Danny took classes in biochemistry, clinical nutrition, micronutrient interactions and physiology. Previous to this Danny also completed a BSc. Degree in biology and physics education and spent a year teaching these subjects.

As well as producing media content, Danny also works as a performance nutritionist to professional MMA fighters, professional boxers and competitive powerlifters. He has consulted several teams in a number of sports.

In This Episode We Discuss:

  • His thoughts on the BBC’s MMA weight cutting documentary?
  • Do you believe some people started weight cutting as they would be at more of advantage dropping down a weight category?
  • Would a trial and error in the offseason be a better way of going about it?
  • Combat sports and vitamin D deficiency and finally the Athlete mindset.
