In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:
Hey guys, Block One Coach Don Ricci here calling from Charlottesville. The reason I am calling is I am seeing a lot of chatter on the TrainHeroic Field Strong feed and that could only mean one thing. There is only one season better than wedding season and that is PAMC season.
I was hoping you could do a deep dive into the background behind it and the reasons behind it. Can you also make a list of movement subs if there are any equipment limitations by the users on the program.
Do Less. Do Less. Well, now you’re not doing anything!
