ASAP~Athletic Strength And Power caught up with Coach Shibinski on a visit to his home fitness center/ gym. Be sure that if this "gym" wasn't in the basement of a home in a well manicured Cincinnati suburb, he could open up a training center here!
Today's podcast focuses on the accomplishments of this well known strength coach as well as taking a look into what it takes to establish a sound high school strength and speed program.
