New Podcast: Unfiltered

Please check out this brand-new podcast I did with Unfiltered!

Jonny and I had a fantastic conversation — This podcast I did back in November is one I really enjoyed. We dove into the depths of the psychology of big lifts, drugs, dosage, and all things physiological with training, lifting, and retiring. We also talk about my work with Prof McGill. 

“What do a large adult male polar bear, a grand piano, and a 1962 Lotus Elan all have in common?

They each weigh around 1300lbs, the equivalent to about 600kg or 94 stone.

Which also means that the bear, the piano and the seminal sports car could all be successfully squatted by Brian Carroll, the retired powerlifter, author and spine health consultant, who holds the record for the heaviest squat of all time at an incredible 1,306lbs.

Even for serious strength athletes that’s a number that’s almost impossible to comprehend. For a clearer comparison, picture someone squatting with 14 plates each side: they’d still be almost 30lbs shy of Carroll’s record.”
