Stretching is bullshit.

At least, according to renowned strength and conditioning coach Dean Somerset, it is. You might recognize his name from his many contributions to popular fitness platforms including Men’s Health and Bodybuilding.com, but today, he’s adding to the list with a guest appearance on this week’s Brute Podcast.

In this episode, Dean admits that from the start, becoming a strength and conditioning coach was rough.
