On our last episode coach Rett Larson explained his approach to warming up, both the theory and practice. This week, we’re sharing a bonus episode where we discuss our own approach to the warm up. As with the rest of our training program, the warmup is constantly evolving. We go in detail into the what and why we do now and how that has evolved over the last few years.
