Wisdom not content
As someone who finds most fitness podcasts dubious, if not outright harmful and problematic (like Mind Pump for example) this show is a stand out in a sea of fitness advice on the internet that is focused on providing content and advice in the absence of context. The team shares the wisdom of their collective experience, always encouraging listeners to do the real work of self examination, rather than trend following, that results in real long term progress. There is no sales pitch here, just real unsexy genuine advice that applies not just to BBing but anything that requires commitment. Excellent show.
I’ve been listening for about a year now. Great podcast for anyone who is looking to level up their lifting in general. The hosts have decades of experience and provide practical solutions for mostly training and nutrition protocols. Lots of variety!
