Welcome to Power Athlete Radio, where we break protein-enriched bread with the sharpest minds in the health, strength, and conditioning community.

Join us as we share war stories from the weightroom and performance knowledge bombs it takes to get physically and mentally stronger every damn day.

Your host John Welbourn, former NFL pro and Power Athlete Founder, teaches people in weeks what took him decades of lifting to learn. Joining him as always is the guy you'd want spotting your one rep max, Power Athlete's Director of Performance: Tex McQuilkin.
