I had a GREAT time on The OPEX Podcast with my friend, Robbie Bourke, 1 of the most passionate Coaches & students of Strength & Conditioning I have ever met.
This podcast gets deep as Robbie asks GREAT questions (as always). I don’t think I’ve ever gotten this deep into my thoughts on the strength & conditioning profession as well as the details of how I train athletes today vs 10-15 years ago.
