Physical Preparation with Mike Coval

MIkeCoval

Mike Coval is a gym owner in Ann Arbor Michigan, and a guy who is doing some amazing work with his young basketball players. He’s also a former IFAST intern, and I couldn’t be more excited to have him on the show.

In this episode Mike and I are going to go in-depth into his training. We cover everything from his assessment process, to his training programs, and even specifics with how he conditions his guys.

I’m telling you – Mike absolutely crushes this interview and I think you’re going to love it.

Let’s do this!
