We’re seeing hyper specificity in sports training when people should be building up resiliency and strength. Doing the sport already trains you to do that sport. Engaging in hyper specificity could lead to greater imbalance and more injuries.

In this episode of RX’D Radio, our special guest, Dr. Clementina Russo, talks about the importance of intention in program design. Intention plays a big role when it comes to training. Where we want to be, influences the choices we will make.

Dr. Clementina shares where her choices have led her and discusses with the guys the problem that happens when people who don’t have the knowledge and experience go around telling people what to do.

It’s about time we think more deeply why we’re lifting weights and doing squats. Is your program helping you to reach your goal? What is your end goal? If you want to level up your exercise programming, don't forget to subscribe and tune in to RX'D Radio!
