Discover the roots of strength coaching and how it’s changed over the decades.

Are you ready to tackle the hard truths and bust the myths in the world of strength coaching? Join us this week as we dive deep with legendary strength coach Zach Even-Esh to explore the current state of strength coaching and why it’s hit an all-time low.

In an era where the obsession with one-rep maxes has become the holy grail, Zach and I will reveal how this fixation is doing more harm than good. It’s time to break away from the false prophets of max lifts and focus on what truly builds strength and resilience.

We also take a nostalgic journey through the golden age of bodybuilding, from the hardcore days of the 80s to the present. Discover the roots of our passion for strength training and how the landscape has evolved over the decades.

This episode is a must-listen for anyone serious about strength, health, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Tune in and get ready to redefine what it means to be truly strong.
