Barbell Shrugged Podcast: Episode 388

Share This:

I have to admit: This was pretty cool.

A few weeks ago the guys who host the popular Barbell Shrugged Podcast – Anders Varner & Doug Larson – reached out because they were going to be in Boston and were wondering if I had interest coming onto the show?

  • Is water wet?
  • Is bacon delicious?
  • Is Bran Stark odd as fuck?1

Of course I’d want to come on.

Barbell Shrugged #388

Anders and Doug showed up at CORE, set up their mics and laptops, handed me a pair of headphones and this is the result…..

None of us have pants on.


It was a treat to be invited onto the show and I think it came out really well. The three of us talk about everything from my start in the fitness industry to my early years writing for T-Nation (and meeting all the O.G’s of the strength & conditioning community) to Cressey Sports Performance to discussing a smorgasbord of coaching topics: training baseball players, adjusting technique to fit one’s anatomy, why most people don’t need to stretch to increase ROM, and how to implement warm-ups  into programs.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
  1. Okay, relax GoT nerd. I understand Bran Stark is no longer “Bran Stark,” and is in fact, the Three-Eyed Raven. He’s still socially awkward. I don’t know about you, but if I had the ability to see into past and future, I’d be awesome and waaaaaaaay less weird.
