The Eighty Five Percent Rule For Optimal Learning & Fitness?

This week Ashley is back! She joins Jerred and Joe as they look at a study that talks about the 85% rule. This seems to be the optimal way to learn and train in order to continue growth in both education and/or training. The team then talk about the 86% from Jerred's book Killing Comfort. Each give their takeaway from this chapter and why they find it useful in multiple aspects of life! This week's Meet Yourself Saturday is a special one. It's called DiCarlo and is dedicated to one of our athletes, Anne DiCarlo, who passed away from Leukemia. It's a breathing ladder so make sure you approach this one with the right mindset!
