Like many guests on this show, Angus has been well-educated in the compression/expansion training ideals proliferated by Bill Hartman that are pushing our industry forward.

EP 5: Sean Noriega
I developed my love for athletics at four years old playing baseball. I played baseball for fourteen years, and it was my dream to play major league baseball. Along the way, our coaches made it clear that strength and conditioning would be integral to taking our performance to the next level. When I reached high school, I fell in love with the training and offseason aspect of my sport, and sought to learn as much as I could about strength training. Our team’s strength coach was my first mentor, and he quickly realized how much I gravitated toward strength training. He quickly pointed me in the direction of a world of information that would change my life forever. Fast forward to senior year of high school, during which I competed in my first powerlifting meet. I was hooked.
My freshman year I began coaching powerlifters at MIT for free to practically apply the fundamentals I had learned over the years. I mentored under phenomenal coaches and amassed a sizable team during undergraduate. I quickly realized that I was really good at what I did, and my critical thinking skills developed during my academic career would lend themselves to my coaching success. I quickly began to dedicate an equal amount of time to developing as a coach as I did as a student. What started as a team of friends, grew into a team of lifters I would coach at Raw Nationals, the Arnold and even IPF Worlds.
I have made it a goal to become a fully comprehensive coach, immersing myself in both the educational world and practical world. I have learned from some of the best coaches in powerlifting, movement science and pain management, as well as immersing myself in as much in-person coaching and meet day handling environments as I can. To date, I have coached over a hundred lifters, and have a team of incredible lifters that features national champions, world champions and medalists, and record holders. I have recently had the privilege of being able to hire incredible coaches, and put them through a rigorous mentorship program, to ensure they learn as much as they can, and are challenged to think critically. I truly believe we are capable of guiding lifters of all abilities, background, and personalities toward their goals.
In this podcast, Sean and I discuss the historical events that led up to modern power lifting preparation. Special consideration was placed on discussing programming for the sport.

EP.4: Bill Hartman
Bill is known as a problem solver. From his small, private practice, IFAST Physical Therapy in Indianapolis, Indiana, Bill provides relief to patients in pain from all over the United States (and other countries!) who could not be helped elsewhere. His detective skills for locating the source of patients’ true problems are often compared to his favorite nocturnal comic book hero although he wears no cape or cowl (but does often wear a bat on his chest under his work clothes… you never know when a hero will be needed).
Bill is an in-demand speaker and consultant across the country and half way around the world to share his approach in regard to restoring a pain-free lifestyle to other health and fitness professionals. He regularly mentors physical therapy students and interns many of whom have gone on to land positions in professional sport or become successful business owners themselves.
Bill is also the co-owner of Indianapolis Fitness and Sports Training with Mike Robertson where he works with clients ranging from very young athletes to professionals. At the age of 50, he took his own advice and transformed himself from a painful and soft 200+ pounder to a lean and much less painful 170-pounds resulting in him being featured in Men’s Health Magazine where he is also a member of the advisory board.
Bill lives outside of Indianapolis with his wife, The Gorgeous One, along with his dog Paxton, and occasionally his adopted son Zac Cupples. To find out more about Bill and how he can help you, go to www.billhartman.net.
In this podcast, Bill and I discuss the importance of creating a working model to guide you as a professional. Beyond that Bill just drops absolutely incredibly brilliant thoughts on a variety of topics.
