    Ep 506 – Leadership and Police Service with Jon Stephenson

    Negativity is a common theme in police work. Officers are constantly responding to traumatic, dangerous, and chaotic scenes and that stress becomes embedded in their psyche. Jon Stephenson talks about how a career in law enforcement nearly ruined his life until he chose to change his mindset and rid himself of the negative thinking addiction.

    Ep 505 – Finding an Identity After Athletes Hang it Up

    Ep 505 – Finding an Identity After Athletes Hang it Up

    John and Tex have a hotline question of baller searching for meaning now that their athletic career has come to an end. The energy and passion is so intense, none can fathom there is an end to their athletic journey when they're living, breathing, and sweating through it! Unfortunately, the end does come for all, some sooner rather than later.

    Ep 504 – Where Private Sector Coaches Fit Into High School Athletics

    Ep 504 – Where Private Sector Coaches Fit Into High School Athletics

    High School athletics is as dramatic as Game of Thrones seasons 1-6, especially when it comes to football. Sport coaches pulling athletes away from being a multi-sport kid dangling (or threatening) a starting position. Kids looking for extra work with a strength or skills coach can be potentially black-balled for not be a "team player". We won't even get started on politics and parents! So where does the private sector coach fit into all this?

    503 – Leaders Who Coach w/ Jamy Bechler

    503 – Leaders Who Coach w/ Jamy Bechler

    We live in a culture where buzzer beater player gets all the glory. Rarely is credit given to the players who set the stage for that shot to even take place. Not in the world of leadership coach, Jamy Bechler. He doesn’t believe in a system where the concept of “TEAM” is constantly referenced, but rarely acknowledged. This is where balance and cohesion are really developed.

    Ep 502 – Squatting For Points or POWER! A #ToesForward Proclamation

    John and Tex take on a caller's question regarding squatting depth and limited range of motion. Naturally the conversation drifted into #toesforward squatting and Power Athlete's movement standard: maintaining posture and position.

Premier Podcast In Strength & Banter-ing, ing, ing

Solid strength and conditioning information, but the real reason I became an avid listener is because if I play it loud enough I can pretend I have friends on my commute, at work, and while squatting alone in my frigid garage. In my leisure time instead of watching the video version I prefer to act out the episodes with my home-made sock puppets of the cast. One is a well worn, but burly wool sock. Another, a bright and obnoxiously colored athletic sock that has since been lost. The last being a baby sock with undisclosed body hair glued to it. And I can’t forget that I start and end each episode by clomping a small boot, I mean hoof, on my desk to bring everything full circle. But in reality, the best takeaways of this show are gleamed from the non-sets & reps conversations along the way. One-liners originated from 80s movies or from piles of dirt, football stories of the rich and (violently) famous, rousing speeches and conversations from incredible guests during their last days on this Earth, and general tenets on how to truly empower your (life) performance are among the many highlights of this show. I believe I speak for all listeners when I say, we thank you. Truly the premier podcast in strength & banter-ing, ing, ing.

Power Athlete Review

I’ve been a long time follower from the CFFB days and currently follow the Field Strong program. I love the diversity of topics covered. As a retired Marine I really appreciated the recent episode on veteran suicide (episode 473). Also, at the age of 48, I appreciated episode 474. It’s the way I train, but sometimes its good to have some confirmation. It can be difficult to not go “balls out” every workout like I did at 28 or even 38. Keep up the great work!
