EP.94 - Fundamentals. Why the simple stuff matters and how to avoid the social media trap The Athletic Development Show

    • Fitness

 

Social media has opened incredible doors for companies and individuals to share ideas, thoughts and learn (for free) almost anything in the world.

Unfortunately, as the fight for attention heats up this leads to unrealistic representations of training and we see more and more exciting flashy “sand” type training and less of the foundational big rocks. In this episode, we try to balance the equation by giving a voice to the hidden vital parts of great training.

 

Resources:
