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.

Great early years, but in decline

The shows with Trex are truly 5-star (excellent content with engaging banter), but sadly the show declined steadily after the break up. I’m sorry to say this, but the new threesome have very little chemistry and I think the show should take a break to find its footing.

Awesome

You all are great. I started a month ago with your first episode and slowly working towards the present. I love your sarcasm not to mention the sarcasm you use when people write bad reviews. Also, your research reviews are awesome
