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

Hey Crew, this is Fig in New Haven hollering at you. My question involves programming: What is the best power athlete program for me? My schedule has dramatically increased from last semester. I’m now taking eleven classes and I need much more quality time in the cadaver lab and in the clinic so I don’t have access to my home gym as often as I did last semester. I’m looking at about one or two times a week. And then other than that, I have the apartment gym, which is Okay. I mean I got a step mill and I have my assault bike with dumbbells up to 50. So if you were me with limited time, you’d maximum return. What would you do? Bye.

I don’t believe in luck or in hard work without the so called “work smart

Programming is always a hot topic in the S&C world and one we do not shy away from at Power Athlete. After all, we are Performance for the People. Common misstep as hard chargers age and life becomes busier is picking and choosing workouts from programs for peak performers. Avoiding leg days, biasing arms over condo, or neglecting working out all together because work/school/home life is just too damn hectic. Then the one day you do return to the gym, you’re just not who you used to be a few days/week/years back. We get it.

John and Tex take a call from an overwhelmed gentlemen looking for organization and options for their strength and conditioning training. Even switched on folks need some direction when life throws you limited time, and sometimes equipment. Listen in as we lead this client to promised land of prioritizing movement selection and getting their work in to remain strong and healthy.
