Ep 42: Quick workouts and mobility for dads, with Ben Barker of The Dad Wod
As is the case so often in today's social media-driven world, I came across this week's Fit Dad Fitness Podcast guest, Ben Barker, on Instagram. I was intrigued by his content, which is geared towards busy dads who don't always have the time to get to the gym or who don't have a lot of equipment to work with at home but want a way to stay fit and active.
Ben runs the website, The Dad Wod, where he posts daily workouts for free for the busy dads out there. He's also big into CrossFit, and with it, believes heavily in the importance of stretching, flexibility, and mobility.
We discuss these things and more in this week's episode, which I characterize as two fit dads just having a wide-ranging conversation about what it means to live an active, involved, healthy lifestyle. I hope you enjoy this interview with Ben, because I definitely did.
Also, be sure to check out the coffee Ben and I discuss towards the end of our talk, Leiva's Coffee.
