This week, Justin and Kevin are sharing exercises that they previously did with clients and themselves, but have since stopped using.

As coaches, it’s essential to continue learning and evolving. As we do so, we may find that some of the methods we initially used aren’t the best options. Rather than be dogmatic and stubborn, we must admit our faults and adapt.

On this episode, Justin and Kevin discuss topics such as high rep plyometrics, stretching clients, and doing things because “that’s how it’s always been done.”
