In our first segment, we talk to training partners Garret Fisher and Holden Rethwill abouthow their workout styles compliment each other, how they train for such an unpredictable athletic event, and how to know when it’s truly time to give their bodies a rest.
Next up, we talk to weightlifters and Games competitors Maddy Myers and Lauren Fisher about thechallenges they face as dual-discipline athletes, how they’ll decide when it’s time to specialize, and what it’s like to enter this field as new athletes––only to discover you’re the best in the world.
