No Leg. No Sight. No Problem. How Would You Adapt Your Training?

Doug Larson


  • I’m planning on becoming a prosthetist/orthotist. In the depths of filling out applications for the grad programs, this was a fantastic episode.

    • Yeah, I think it will help to remind yourself of your higher purpose. This is a very important thing to be doing, so thank you for the effort.

  • Glad to see this podcast happen. I’ve been training an adaptive athlete for over a year now. I took the Adaptive Athlete course with Sara and Chef earlier this year. They were a big help. Going To D.C. in November to the Working Wounded Games so my athlete can compete. Keep up the good work fellas.

  • It would be better for the listeners if Chris wouldn’t interrupt and talk over the guests and other hosts. Please hang back and let the conversation flow.

    • Andy, let’s just say this – You’d be surprised what it takes to keep a conversation going on microphones. I’m better at hanging back now than I used to be, but guess what happens when you do that all the time? …A conversation that doesn’t flow.

        • What we’re here for. And to your point, I know I’m loud. But I think I’m getting better every time, for the most part. Like I said, you’d be really surprised at how tricky it is. Kind of like lifting. Seems simple at first, then you spend the rest of your life working on it. 🙂

  • Chris –
    Since the big move out to So-Cal it sounds to me like you’ve seriously stepped up your game! You’ve always been great on the mic but since the move I hear a new level of thoughtfulness and professionalism, I noticed it last week on the Travis Mash episode and this week with Kenny and Cory, as well as your recent GetChange podcasts. I’ve always loved your work, but recently I get the impression that you’re now a Professional Podcaster. Just wanted to let you know that your hard work and dedication is very apparent and is contributing hugely to a positive and highly valuable listening experience. Truly something better with my morning coffee.
    Thank you so much for all you do,

    • Man, that means a lot. 🙂 Thanks.
      Really, just trying to improve. Every time it feels the same (like I could have done a million things better). So, still some room to improve.
