Great all around Strength / Hypertrophy oriented podcast

Easily one of the best, if not the best, “Muscle” related podcasts out there on the Webs. But since it was the first ever fitness related podcasts ever put out, that’s to be expected I guess. Tons of great info put out by Eric Trexler and his temporary (?) guest host Greg Nuckols. You can clearly sense the tension b/t them during the podcasts, but it only seems to make each of them up their game to provide outstanding fitness information. Also, just to to be clear, they were promoting a MASS Black Friday sale. They were NOT promoting nor advertising to celebrate a Black Mass this Friday.

The this podcast has really declined in quality with recent changes in hosts

Far too diluted and sloppy

This show is really frustrating! It has good information, but getting to it is a ridiculous slog.

Many of the episodes are hours long, mostly a casual meander here & there with occasional bits of useful info. It’s painful. No one is going to sit glued to the screen that long; you have to let them blather in in the background while you do something else and try not to tune them out entirely, because you do want to hear when they come around to the topic, do you can take notes. At the end, you can read the notes at a reasonable speed & see what you spent so much of your day on.

They give a couple references for each episode (although the page for the current episode, on power building, is 404), but clearly not everything. The few articles linked could be read aloud in the time the show takes! That would get them rejected from any journal; why treat your audience so badly, with such sloppy work?

With a tight script and good editing—AV editing to get the shows down to a snappy half hour and someone treating the bibliographies professionally—this show could be amazing. I’ve followed it, listened when I can stand it, or looked up the references, for a couple of years now, hoping they’d get their act together. They clearly just don’t care.
