In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hey John and Tex – there seems to be a lot of flip flopping in the strength and fitness world in regards to rep ranges for strength and getting jacked. Power Athlete has been consistent with John’s explanation of reps since my CFFB days. If you can shed some light on this it would be great. Byeeee

Over all the coursing sun, form ever follows function, and this is the law.

School is in session this podcast as John and Tex take a couple pages out of the Power Athlete Methodology to set a hotline caller straight on how to program for strength and getting jacked. You’re going to want to listen to this ep twice to get all the notes on rep maxes, training to failure, creating mechanical tension, and knowing where a client is on their athlete lifecycle. If you learn a thing or two from this podcast, just imagine what you’ll take away from the Power Athlete Methodology online course! 🤯
