Welcome back to the EMP Podcast! 

Today we’ve got another one of the Storror boys, Callum Powell, joining us to take a deep dive into the subject of strength training for parkour. We’ll talk about injury rehab, the role of weight training, exercise selection for force production, and how Callum has been approaching his own training.

We’ll also take a look at the current state of parkour, what’s improving, what’s blowing our minds, and what needs to be fixed for the sport to really take off?
