Brute Strength’s very own programming guru and Director of Strength & Conditioning, Nick Fowler is interviewed on the show this week. In this epi, ode we’re lifting the hood so you can really get a feel for Brute’s training methodologies, and a look into how we’re getting athletes ready for The Crossfit Games.
