Now for this weeks episode. After recently getting back from Hawaii and running the Spartan Trifecta weekend, I talk about some the challenges and obstacles faced with these races, although the full race recap will be in our next episode.
Coach CJ Wagner from www.misfitstrength.com provides a full race recap for the new Spartan Time Trial held in Austin, TX a little while back. This is a really cool new race that Spartan is putting out and CJ gives some great insight here.
In our research review I talk about 2 different studies looking at swollen knees, and why you may think twice before working out with even a little bit of swelling in your knees.
And finally in our Coaches's Corner I have on SGX Coach Joseph Bautista. We switch gears a bit in this interview and talk about youth fitness and sports. With issues in youth sports and childhood obesity on the rise, I thought it was crucial that we get an expert on to discuss different ways to get kids involved in moving more.
Joseph talks about his passion for working with kids and helping them develop. He discusses some short comings with school PE programs and talks about different ways to help standards kids development and progression.
He shares his thoughts on teaching self discipline, dealing with failure, participation trophies, letting kids learn on their own, and much much more. If you have kids or work with kids you will definitely want to check out this interview.
