    #480 My Debut as a Wedding Officiant (cRaZzY story!), The Ideal Year-Round Body Fat % for Men & More!

    WARNING: This is not your typical Industrial Strength Show. (If you listen to this podcast for training info only, this is NOT the episode for you.) Unlike most weeks where Joe answers listener questions and/or invites special guests on the show - This week is more like grabbing a coffee with a friend and "shooting the sh*t" together :) Joe spends the first half of the show detailing his [CRAZY] debut as a wedding officiant. If you know Joe, you can probably already guess his experience was far from "normal"! LOL. He then shares a conversation he had [at the wedding] regarding "the ideal, year-round body fat percentage". He concludes the show by answering a last-minute DM from a listener who asked, "If yoga is considered strength training". *For a full list of Show Notes + Timestamps visit www.IndustrialStrengthShow.com.
