Barbells & BS was born of a desire for three friends to find a way to get what they talked about in the gym to a larger audience of people. Matt Murphy, Justin Davis, and Vic Rosales posess years of knowledge on topics ranging from endurance and weightlifting training to sport specific diet and training needs. In addition to ourselves, guests will frequently appear to provide unique insight and knowledge that we may not be able to provide. Of course, the 'BS' in Barbells & BS will be prevalent throughout. There's really no telling where the conversation will go. We do our best to earn the 'explicit' label. Enjoy!

    #13: Max Aita

    #13: Max Aita

    After a brief, save one incredible visit to Caffeine and Kilos, 6 month haitus, Barbells and BS is back. For our first episode back in the saddle, we headed down to Emeryville, CA to talk to Max Aita. Max trains Olympic and powerlifters out of Max's Gym, located behind Crossfit Oakland. Max is one of the most knowledgable coaches either of us have ever been around. His experience and understanding of the science behind lifting is second to very few in the strength world. We talked about his time training with the Bulgarian method, the differences between training online and in-house lifters, the difficulties in finding time to focus on one's own lifting as a coach, and what's next for Max's Gym. Please comment on the quality of the sound, we have a new recording set-up and it took...awhile to learn how to use it.

    #12: Charlie Zamora

    Really excited to be back this week with a new episode featuring Caffeine and Kilos CEO and co-founder Charlie Zamora. Charlie is a really passionate guy who takes the role that Caffeine and Kilos plays in the strength and fitness world very seriously. We talk about the company's journey from an idea that Charlie put on a tank top in 2013 on his own to an LLC corporation that is one of the biggest brands in the fitness world. Charlie is a great guy and an awesome exampe of taking the things you love and making a living out of them. 
    Quick note, Barbells & BS is NOT gone but episodes will be fairly spaced out for the immediate future. Believe it or not, while we love doing this, it does not pay the bills and we do have to work it around each of our schedules. We're looking at getting back to a more regular schedule in 3-4 months. In the meantime we will still be producing episodes with awesome guests, just a little less frequently. Thanks for sticking around. 
    Follow the show on Instagram and Twitter @barbellsandbs for updates and extra content. We do have a website that we're working on building as well, so look for that in the future. Cheers.

    Today's guest is professional MMA fighter Anthony Hernandez. Anthony is a full-time fighter training out of MMA Gold in El Dorado Hills, CA.

    Episode #10: NPC Physique Competitor Michael Lopez

    Episode #10: NPC Physique Competitor Michael Lopez

    This week's episode features our good friend and NPC Men's Physique competitor Michael Lopez. Michael was a state championships-level wrestler in high school who used to hate lifting weights. After he stopped wrestling, he realized the competitive outlet it gave him in the absence of an organized sport and fell in love with the men's phsyique side of bodybuilding. He won the first show he entered and just competed at his first national level show in Las Vegas. Though he didn't place as well as he wanted, he took away valuable experience and is hungrier than ever to earn his pro card for the IFBB. We had a great conversation about Michael's journey to where he is now in bodybuilding, the difficulties of competing in that sport, the judging inconsistencies in men's physique, his approach to diet and supplements, and his plans for the future.

    Episode #9: Dan Stornaiuolo AKA Bob Evans

    This week we welcome Supertraining Gym's Dan Stornaiuolo, otherwise known as Fat Dan and Bob Evans, to the show. Dan's been training under Mark Bell and Silent Mike at Supertraining for about a year now after playing on Sacramento State's offensive line for three and a half seasons. We talk to Dan about the benefits of the team atmosphere at Supertraining, the football injuries he's had to come back from, keeping weight on for strength versus losing body fat and regaining strength, and what it was like to lift with the G.O.A.T, Ed Coan. He also tells us what may be the greatest poop story ever told at the end of the podcast.

    Episode #8: Crossfit Games Preview

    Episode #8: Crossfit Games Preview

    No guest this week on Barbells & BS. We began with the intention of previewing the Crossfit Games, though in typical fashion we quickly derailed into a littany of topics including but not limited to the Games, Rich Froning, how Matt Fraser is the new Rich Froning, the team competition this year, Michael Jackson, and, regrettably, AIDs. Be sure to follow the show on instagram (@barbellsandbs), on twitter (@barbells_bs), and subscribe on iTunes. We appreciate all the love and support we've gotten so far and have a lot of exciting guests and other fun stuff planned. Cheers.
