“That’s what I love, just seeing people learn new things. Especially when they’re put in all of that effort and see it pay off.” —Declan McCarthy
On this episode I talk with my good friend Declan McCarthy. We recorded this episode on Dec’s anniversary of jumping everyday for three years. Obviously this guy knows a thing or two about consistency. Dec was one of the first people on the podcast, and we really dig into everything that has happened in the last year or so since we last spoke here. Spoiler: he’s done a lot, and has a lot of valuable things to say about training and long term motivation.
You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
