Best podcast for injured athletes!

I’m an aged competitor, a “hybrid athlete” as they say, an even amount of running and strength. Unfortunately a chronic running condition (Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy) has hampered my performance for years and ultimately sidelined me. After listening to Brodie’s podcast I felt like he was speaking directly to me! So much so that I hired him after undergoing bilateral PRP injection in both hamstring tendons. I’m confident he’ll get me back to doing what I love, Spartan and Hyrox competitions!
