A podcast for powerliters and strength enthusiasts alike! Coach Ben is a professional powerlifting coach and bench presser, with an 820 lb bench in competition. He shares his tips and tricks on how to get stronger, and remain injury free!
We have two show experiences. Our Bench Talk LIVE is an open Q&A and is often a longer show where we shoot the shit and have a good time. Thursdays topic episode gets down to business and shares actionable advice on how to get stronger. Typically this is a shorter show.
