This week on RX’D Radio, Jordan Shallow is joined by the unconventional and impressive Nick Gloff. Nick is only 22, but his short trajectory through life has been anything but uneventful. 

In this episode, we get to know Nick: through a pivotal moment at age 12; through his journey out of obesity and into football; as a really strong bodybuilder. Each of these events has provided him a source of motivation, and training has been the greatest vehicle to teach him how to strive for excellence. The duo dive into their approach to programming and the importance of always challenging your own knowledge. Strong topics covered in this episode include comprehension of “First-principles of Intent-based programming”, proving concepts from experience rather than preaching general knowledge, and the great frustration behind the all-encompassing smoke-bomb platitude, “it depends”. Tune in for the ride!

The boss men, Jordan Shallow and Jordan Jiunta are reunited to discuss the release of RX’D Programming. This episode gets into the heart and soul of Pre-Script.

RX’D Programming is the reason that The Jordans started this business in the first place. They dive into the principles of an appropriate and intentional warm-up routine, and the purpose that it serves to prime you for your day’s training, whatever that training may be!

Based on the principles that founded Pre-Script, RX’D Programming is intentionally designed to address the mobility and stability of the hip, shoulder and spine: Mobility-Stability-Strength™.
