Our Favorite Resources

Whether it's physical, mental, or technical training, we often look to other sports and experts for ideas. As a source of online information ourselves, we know that there is an overwhelming amount of information out there to sift through. It can be hard to know where to begin, what's worth checking out, and which sources you can count on for accurate and useful information.  We wanted to share a few of our favorites for those of you interested in digging deeper into your training.  Here are some books, other podcasts, and additional online resources we turn to first for information we can trust.
