My Biggest Training Mistake Ever, and What Scares Me Most – Episode 349

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

We’ve got a listener Q&A episode of Renegade Radio this week where we discuss training volume, frequency, intensity, recovery, my biggest mistakes and much more. 

Then I address the importance of “packaging and presentation,” and how to show up every day as a superstar worthy of getting paid a million dollars an hour. 

Finally, I share some deep thoughts and life lessons on what we should all strive to avoid.
