28 Min Listen

In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

John, Tex, Luke, been a field strong follower since day 1, and CFFB before that. I’ve always logged my workouts religiously on paper, but not so much in TrainHeroic. Call me old fashioned. I hear you guys talk about tracking our training through TrainHeroic though, what exactly do you guys look at and how does it affect our training?

The Record is There For Someone to Break

Old-schooool gym rats are still out there in a cut off sweat shirt clapping chalk and logging weights in a composition notebook. Live into now! They picked up a fancy wrist watch to count steps and calories for a new level of accountability, but are losing out on potential progress and injury risk reduction by not utilizing tech to track their training.

Luke and Tex tackle a user question seeking guidance on benefits of using tech to log workouts. Tune in to see how movement demos, coaching cues, and calculated weights can impact how much you’re squeezing out of a training program. The Crew also takes you behind the curtain of Power Athlete’s training programs and share what performance metrics they key in on through @TrainHeroic to guide athletes.
