E. 19 From Crossfit Affiliate to Obstacle Training Friendly Strength and Conditioning Gym Matt Brown


Welcome to Episode 19 of the Obstacle Order,

In this episode, Philip and Elijah are joined by Matt Brown of NorCal Strength and Conditioning (formerly NorCal Crossfit, 4th crossfit affiliate.) Matt is the facilities coordinator at NorCal Strength and Conditioning.  Matt earned a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Chico State. He has an athletic background in competing and coaching the middle distances in track and field. Potentially a programming master for OCR.

This show delves into the history and future of NorCal Strength and Conditioning.  Also, some further discussion of max lift efforts while fatigued.  How does a strength and conditioning facility differ from a CrossFit box?  Find out here.

Mid-way through the show the tables are turned as Matt asks the hosts about how to best outfit a facility for an obstacle focused workout program.  This is a fun dense episode with great discussion and great pointers for anyone looking to add a new element to a strength training gym and get on the wave of OCR.
