Show Notes

In this episode, Jason and Lauren discuss exactly how they would recommend going about training after an illness - the answer really depends on if you're competing in either Powerlifting or Olympic Weightlifting, or if you're training for general health, fitness, and life. They also address a Tim Ferris podcast with Charles Poliquin, who states that Kettlebell swings are bad for your back. Finally, as they approach their fifth year anniversary, they discuss their hopes and dreams for the next five. We hope you enjoy the show!
