I mentioned in a previous post that I deadlift. I took up barbell lifting about a year and a half ago after spending a lifetime doing little more than running. I really enjoy it but certainly wouldn’t hold myself out as an expert.
Fortunately, I found someone who was an expert to train me in the lifts. That’s Michael Wolf of Wolf Strength. The guy is an associate of Mark Rippetoe, author of Starting Strength (the bible of barbell lifting). He’s also quite an impressive lifter himself.
Wolf joined me this week for a chat on strength training. If the podcast audio doesn’t display for you, click over to listen on Soundcloud. We discuss the what’s and why’s of strength training, the difference between “weightlifting” “powerlifting” and “bodybuilding”, and a bit about Crossfit and P90X.
