Jim Wendler on Training High Schoolers (Part 2) – The Barbell Life 241

With the financial success of 5/3/1, Jim Wendler has been able to live his dream.

He’s now a strength coach at his local high school – and he has totally transformed the program. They’ve gone from being mediocre to now being a dominant force.

So to hear how he’s had such stellar results, listen in and get ready to take notes.
