Ep 68: Becoming a Top 1% Athlete with Spencer Hendel
On the show today, I have a good buddy of mine, Spencer Hendel, joining me. Fortunate enough to play at the highest stages of fitness, Spencer is an 8x CrossFit Games competitor, finishing 5th in the individual races and 5th in the team races. Spencer and I discuss the variables and attributes that helped him develop his love for health and fitness. We dive into the programming approach of sticking to broad, general and inclusive programming in order to specialize in more than one area. We then move to the importance in understanding the difference between doing CrossFit as an everyday training methodology versus training CrossFit as a sport to compete and become a top 1% athlete.
