"i can't relate to people who wouldn't die for what they do."
This week are joined by coach, lifter, musician, and legend, Jim Wendler. Jim was nice enough to indulge us for a lengthy conversation about his training ethos and it's origins.
We discuss the culture of sports and how unique the team dynamic really is. Jim appropriately makes note of (and I'm paraphrasing here) rhow the people outside the culture try dictate how the culture should behave.
After some football reminiscing, we have to explain to Jim how an "up down" is really called a "burpee" now and that people voluntarily do them for conditioning. His response is of course, priceless.
If you're like me, you're probably wondering what Jim thinks about the popularity of the now widely used "5-3-1" method. Find out what he really thinks about the implementation and how he navigates questions like "Can you 5-3-1 wallballs?"
Finally, hear what's new with Jim and what is on his agenda for 2015.
Get your pencil and paper ready to jot down some of the most quotable Wendlerisms including this one:
"Most of your problems could be solved if you just took a shit and thought about it for ten seconds."
Yep. More of that to come on Power Athlete Radio.
