EP.86 - Every Athlete Should Own a Spin Bike

Podcast 25 Minutes - When it comes to sport specific fitness:
Playing your sport comes first
Training drills and small sided games come second
Repeat sprints and Game Fit type drills come third
And 8:12s on the bike come forth

Durham and Jacob talk all about the benefits of the spin bike (and other forms of unloaded cardio) when it comes to getting extra conditioning for team and ball sport athletes.
