Episode 102Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I interview the specialist from Train, Adapt, Evolve, Patrick Estes and Aaron Davis (@trainadaptevolve). These guys are two of the best strength and conditioning coaches I’ve ever met. We take a couple different approaches to strength and conditioning on this weeks show and dive into topics like basic principles and fundamentals to strength and conditioning, developing as a coach, the technology they are using, and how to view an athlete as a system. If you guys are coaches or are looking to get into the coaching world, there are a lot of nuggets of information in this one. Enjoy the show!
