Episode at a Glance

In this episode of the Doc and Jock Podcast Danny & Joe tackle a question comes up for almost every coach, physio and athlete on the planet: how should I (my client, wife, friend..et) train while pregnant? Danny and Joe start by talking about their own experiences with pregnant training. Obviously neither of them have ever been with child, but both have wives and have had several children so they speak to how their own wives dealt with the matter.

The conversation covers all the things you need to know whether you a CrossFitter, Weightlifter, Runner, Dancer…etc..if you have a question it will get answered here.
