BOSU Founder David Weck Flips the Script on Fitness Training.

BOSU Founder David Weck Flips the Script on Fitness Training.

On this week’s episode of the Escape Your Limits Podcast, we sat down with a biomechanist and inventor who specializes in the study of human movement and locomotion. With his 20 plus years of expertise in the industry, he has in-depth knowledge of the feet in relation to athletic performance, and the natural human function of locomotive abilities.

David Weck is the CEO and Founder of BOSU Fitness where his inventions focus on building the rotational, pulsing, and coiling abilities of the athlete.

We had the opportunity to visit him at his WeckMethod Lab in San Diego where he spills his plethora of knowledge to us about:

  • The exponential difference of being coiled versus being stiff/braced when working out
  • His opinion about traditional power moves that are overused and disadvantageous
  • And why the fitness community isn’t supporting his methods
