PA Radio – Episode 270: The Crew

Beefin' What does Power Athlete Radio have to do with Big Trouble in Little China? Virtually nothing. But what does this episode have to do with your IG inquiries? Everything. It's CrossFit Games season and that means plenty of time to bullshit about the workouts. You asked about injuries, technique, shoes, and shampoo. We delivered like Amazon fucking Prime. It’s CrossFit Games season which means, like most people, we comfortably sit back and make judgements about the selected workouts. A...

PA Radio – Episode 266: Allen Gannett

PA Radio – Episode 265: The Crew

Teach a Man to Shrug and He'll Hit for a Lifetime If someone were to ask me to personify Power Athlete Radio, I’d say it’s kind of like a wise old man. Respected for his breadth of knowledge and expertise but also humored for his completely unsubstantiated stories about high school, women, and being friends with famous people. This week is a like sitting down with Ol’ Grampa Power Athlete over a glass of whiskey. Yes, your training questions will be answered but not without a price. And that...


PA Radio: Episode 264 – Dr Richard Citrin

If You Don't Use It You Lose It We throw the word "stressed" around like it's a decent excuse for why we retreat within ourselves or cop an attitude with others. Similarly, when our performance in the weight room, on field, or at work is lackluster we often blame it on stress. Dr Richard Citrin [@RichardCitrin] is here to let you know, you and your stress is not special. You are not a unique snowflake. Everyone endures varying degrees of stress on a regular basis and what's more, we were...


PA Radio – Episode 263: Dr Laurie Santos

Monkey See, Monkey Do We have Dr. Laurie Santos on the show to talk about the behavioral similarities and differences that exist between humans and other primates. This is important stuff because we are learning a ton about how we collaborate socially, how we make irrational economical decisions, and Laurie’s favorite fascination…how we over imitate each other. Holy shit. We are blindly doing what other people are doing which is fine if we are imitating intelligence or, say, good movement...


PA Radio – Episode 262: Sorinex SS Recap

PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE Brothers and Sisters in strength met recently to celebrate what was the 11th year of Sorinex Summer Strong in South Carolina. In attendance were members of the PAHQ Crew.

PA Radio – Episode 260: John Welbourn

slay life Creator of Power Athlete and NFL veteran, J Welly [@JohnWelbourn] takes questions from Luke and Tex and reflects on the principles he's acquired over the years.

PA Radio – Episode 259: Dustin Grooms

Also, what role does it play in the rehabilitation of injuries, discovering limiting factors, and improving performance. He's also closely studying what therapies are most effective for post-concussion athletes.

PA Radio – Episode 258: The Crew

PA Radio – Episode 256: John Howard

Hug It Out, Bro Relationships are complicated. And I’m not talking about just the romantic kind. Friends, co-workers, and even coach/athlete relationships are seriously complex entities and it takes more than just talking about issues ad nauseam to improve them. As John Howard explains, our knowledge of how and why we react certain ways in relationships has seen great advancements in recent years. Much like the study of sports science, our reactions and behavior can be mapped back to...
