Today is Episode 50! That’s right, 50! For the last 25 weeks we have been doing 2 podcasts per week and the show will keep going. This had to be a special episode so I passed the mic over to JR for this one to have him interview someone. The perfect person for this conversation is none other than PPSC Instructor, Dan Stephenson.
Dan recently put our the 7 Functional Strength Standards to evaluate how strong we are in certain lifts and to identify our areas we can bring more attention to. Stephenson is a mad scientist when it comes to programming and I know John wanted to deep dive and try to find out what’s going on in that brain of his. This is a programming deep dive, so buckle in!
