Episode notes

Today’s episode is a deep dive. This is where we take a single topic and answer it with the "need to know" on the topic based on our education and experience working with clients. In today’s topic, we break down why exercise technique and mechanical tension matter and why they are both so important.

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let’s get into today’s episode.
