Ep. 176 - Exercise Execution Masterclass w/ James Sutton

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, where I’m joined by physique and exercise specialist James Sutton to discuss optimal exercise mechanics and execution to get the most out of your training. A training program on paper doesn’t mean anything without execution, and the fundamental of any training endeavour is proper technique for your body, which is where James and I dive into – covering optimal mechanics for squatting, pressing and pulling variations. If you’re ready to level up your training, tune in and take notes.

“If we don’t use it, we lose it.”
