Strength Chat Podcast – ALFRED JONG

TSG Coach Alfred Jong on The Strength Chat Podcast

Recently, Alfred Jong joined Steven Cuthbert in Episode 85 of The Strength Chat podcast.

From the success Alfred has had with his athletes, you can clearly see he knows what he’s doing. This isn’t to say that it’s solely down to programming though. In this episode, we covered a topic I feel is often forgotten or overlooked, the importance of communication between athlete and coach. A really interesting topic to cover with loads of great content and information
