Welcome to Episode 90 of the Obstacle Order!

Ryan Kempson

In this episode Elijah sits down with Ryan Kempson of Advanced Movement Athletics. Ryan is an outside the box thinker who likes to take a holistic approach to Obstacle Course training. This podcast covers the fundamentals of Ryan’s coaching and training philosophy.

Ryan explains how conditioning is not just about aerobic fitness, but it’s also about learning and practicing foundational movement patterns that teach you how to become a better athlete. In doing so, you will acquire great obstacle immunity.  This will shift your perspective on how you see obstacles from something that is impeding you, to something that you can gain an advantage on the field during.

Ryan also talks about the Burdenko method and how that course shifted his perspective on both training and recovery.  Ryan will be teaching all of these strategies and more in an upcoming clinic at the Savage Barn November 5th.
