Episode 60 - Lou Ferrigno
In 2013, Generation Iron had the pleasure of interviewing Lou Ferrigno alongside the rest of the cast of Generation Iron. Now just under 10 years later, Lou Ferrigno reconnects with GI to talk about the modern state of bodybuilding, his life changing hearing implant, and more.
Episode 59 - George Farah Returns
Former pro bodybuilder and legendary guru returns to the Generation Iron podcast to discuss health in bodybuilding, an analysis of the past year in the sport, and catch us up with life after a year of the pandemic. Farah is known as one of the most iconic bodybuilding trainers in the history of bodybuilding. Let's pick his brain a bit.
Episode 58 - Victor Martinez
Victor Martinez is an IFBB Pro bodybuilder and also one of the featured athletes in our original documentary - Generation Iron. We reconnected with Martinez to look back at his bodybuilding career, talk about his future plans, and discuss the latest trends in bodybuilding today.
Episode 57 - Samir Bannout
Samir Bannout is a pro bodybuilder and a Mr. Olympia champion from a far different era. A perfect example of this is the fact that Banout won the Olympia weight in at only 196 pounds. In today’s bodybuilding – you’d likely find the lightest Men’s Open pro bodybuilder weighing no less than 225 pounds – and that’s even on the lighter side. Many pro bodybuilders today weight closer to 250 pounds or more. This very example is a core reason that Bannout thinks something has shifted in modern bodybuilding. In our interview we discuss this shift as well as the future of bodybuilding as a sport.
Episode 56 - Guy Cisternino
On May 13, 2021, pro bodybuilder Guy Cisternino posted a video on his Instagram account. Within a week, the video went viral not only in bodybuilding but beyond it. The video in question showcased Cisternino getting into a heated argument at the gym. The video has since brought extreme criticism and defense of Cisternino’s actions. In our latest interview - we go into detail with Cisternino about the viral video and also dig into his bodybuilding career and future.
Episode 55 - Brad Castleberry Returns
Brad Castleberry has long since been a controversial fitness athlete in bodybuilding. Known most prominently for being accused of lifting fake weights in his viral videos. Some time has passed since the height of his controversy - and a year has passed since we last spoke to him at length. An entire pandemic has shifted the world and bodybuilding. That's why we've decided to reconnect with Brad and discuss his past year life changes, the future of bodybuilding, and how he deals with depression and anxiety.
