The Mind-body connection and primal roots ft Mike Fitch

Episode 93Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I’ll be interviewing Mike Fitch from Animal Flow and Global Bodyweight Training. Mike is an innovative body-weight trainer who focuses on bodyweight training, skills-based practices and multi-planar, fluid movement. This episode is all about connecting the mind and body through ground-based movements in an effort to reconnect with our internal system. We will be getting into the benefits of hand and feet coordination, meditation and breathing, injury prevention in CrossFit and getting out of the sagittal plane. Be sure to check out his website for tons of free content on mastering handstands, muscle ups, and any other bodyweight skill. Enjoy the show!
