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™.
