Awakening Your Training with Marcus Filly of Revival Strength
On this episode of Uncharted Performance we are joined by a very successful and immensely intelligent athlete and coach, 6 times CrossFit games competitor, founder of Revival Strength and most importantly new dad, Marcus Filly. What Marcus has developed is to what to outsiders might see as a seamless blend of how many of us first got into fitness, chasing that pump, and what many of us have transitioned to and grown to love, functional fitness. Before we get to Functional Bodybuilding and a walkthrough the very popular Awaken Training Series, we discuss how he got to now starting with his first ever training session and how that left him, his interest and passion in the physical and health sciences, the role medical school played in defining his mission, and the five major impact points in his training life, all along connecting all the dots. What is Functional Bodybuilding then exactly? Great question, but you will just have to listen to the episode to find out specifically. What it is not is what you necessarily see on Marcus’ Instagram or a general CrossFit type programming template. It is a very much needed response to the the one size fits all approach that has you gasping for air after each training session. We hope you enjoy the episode as much as we did speaking with Marcus and are very excited to share this conversation with you and to see where the Awaken Training Series goes in the very near future with the next series starting right around the corner, October 9th (link below).
