    One question – in the beginning of this episode, John and Kelly talk about knee position and the huge increase of the ACL injuries in girls and boys in the US because of the toes out/knees in athletic positions.

    Could this also be contributing to the large number of ACL injuries in the NFL this year? 38 so far this year.

    Any opinion what’s causing this?

    What I love about this programming (or at least the comments and podcast) is the reinforcement of form first. I think that just over the history of the podcasts and as a listener having that experienced voice (John) has changed my perception or realization of what it is I hope to accomplish. I was the one *trying* to lift AHAP without consideration for rest (more so than diet for me). Cutting back my Sat WOD and focusing on form have brought better results with time in terms of strength and mobility. This episode hit that topic dead nuts.

    Love it. I make my kids do sprints too. I also got a few cheap/light medicine balls and have them move them from point A to point B. They love it, I love it, and it gives me time to have an actual conversation.
