the best skill is a beast skill.
This week we have Jim Bathurst of Beast Skills.
Jim brings a rare insight to the world of strength and conditioning because his specialty lies in the niche world of acrobatics, gymnastics and grip training.
Hear how he got his start by mastering a parlor trick and his subsequent journey to becoming a recognized resource in the genre of obscure badassery.
Jim also coaches our listeners up on how to incorporate random skill work into gen pop programming and the value it inevitably yields.
Just a warning: we recorded this while Jim was between appointments so there is some ambient noise in the background. And for that I say deal with it.
Lot’s of great info coming at you in Episode 92 of Power Athlete Radio.
