Ep 119: Toxic Poop, Community and Doing Less

With the flashback episodes behind us, this week I sit down with Rebel coaches Keiran Halton and Ryan L’Ecuyer to debrief last month’s training camp. The training camps are an important feature at Rebel Performance because these are the times we get to meet up with all of our athletes to lift, learn, coach, throw down, eat, vibe, and so much more.

The meat and potatoes of the episode are surrounding toxic poop (yes, you will need to tune in to understand the context), how important community is in the training and lifting world (aka being surrounded by people who actually love to lift and train like you do), get out of your own head and stop getting over-coached/over-cued (nailing your setup is the crucial step here) Listen in to hear our biggest takeaways from the weekend and why it's a no brainer you should be at the next one.
