    These podcasts are great. I’m pissed that Luke ripped on my dozen eggs and handful of kale diet though.

    First, gotta show appreciation for the new powerathletehq site! Love it, y’all have done an excellent job and the resources and information your putting out make life easier. I have a few questions for the podcast:

    I’m re-reading starting strength and re-evaluating my form on things, particularly the squat. In his book he recommends a more forward torso from the beginning so that the bar can rest on the posterior deltoids, hands should be as close as they can without bending the wrist to keep the back tight and thumbs should be over the bar. I’ve looked for videos and info on what y’all’s opinion is for bar position and hand position and found a video where it sounded like you wanted the bar on the low traps, and hands close, and your not real worried about the wrists. But then in the comments you said “Jon and Rip agree on bar position and have different opinions on grip width/wrists.” So I just want a quick answer, where does CFFB typically recommend the bar to be for general strength training?

    Ive listed to all of your podcast and can’t get enough, my jobs are typically working alone with headphones in so I’ve got literally all day to absorb as much as I can. Do you have any other suggestions for strength and conditioning podcasts?

    Again, thanks for everything.

    As a K-9 officer we are tested on the 1.5 mile run max push-ups in a minute, max sit-ups in a minute and a few other things each year. CFFB programming has made me more prepared and ready to go. I normally hit a run (1-3 miles) and some body weight stuff on Saturdays when I am not playing lacrosse. The programming as a specific program for my needs as an officer is incomparable. CFFB programming has made going 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, being strong, fast, and carrying enough mass to move people around and handle my dog easy compared to other programs I have done. Great stuff and thank you for all your info and help along the way.
