“Ever since I’ve started jumping rope, I feel sharper in my movements.” —Dustin Glass
In this episode I have a chat with Dustin Glass. This is a power house episode as Dustin and I discussed a huge variety of different topics. You’ll soon find out that Dustin is a super humble and hilarious guy, and though not all of our stories are directly jump rope related, they all tie into his jump rope fitness journey. We chat about maintaining motivation when you hit skill blocks, who should be creating jump rope tutorials, restructuring training to keep it fun, and how to minimize cognitive load to maximize fitness goals.
You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
