M.E.D. Masterclass Part 1

Big fan of the podcast, but this episode in particular might be the most helpful episode I’ve listened to - especially if you’re a post novice lifter. So much good discussion about programming. I’m re-listening just to make sure I don’t miss anything.

Pull ups and post workout stretching?

Love the getting started series. Just starting again after a long layoff so I feel like a newbie again. Two things I’m curious about though, you never mention post workout stretches and don’t suggest pullups or barbell rows for novice linear progression. Can you address this or refer me to an episode that might already have, thanks.

Life changing

More than any other podcast, Barbell Logic has changed my life. I’m ten weeks in my novice linear progression, and can already tell that the trajectory of the remainder of my life has been drastically altered. While I have a long way to go, I feel as strong as I ever have in my life. I enjoyed weightlifting in my CrossFit days a decade ago, before marriage and kids. This podcast has helped me figure out how to make the barbell a consistent part of my life. Thank you~
