Chalk Talk – Episode 8: GameDay Lifts vs. Lifting on Game Day 

It is game day and just a few hours before the big competition. Time to lift? While some coaches are jumping into “Game Day Lifts”, Coach Breslin and Coach Reno suggest we take a step back and think about what our goal is. 

This episode breaks down everything from when to lift, when not to lift, and why pre-game prep does not mean we need a barbell in our hands.

Check out our full article on Game Day Lifts written by Coach Reno.
