Steroids In Armwrestling with Leah Robb

4/20/2023
This is the audio from Leah's YouTube video interview with me. You can check out her channel at https://www.youtube.com/@LeahRobb. The following is her description of the interview. Sounded good so I didn't change it! "PEDs come up in discussion regularly in Arm-wrestling, whether by the athletes themselves or in comments by fans. Derek Smith recently suggested a weight cap. John Brzenk doubts the benefits of heavy PED use actually outweigh the negatives. Ryan Bowen has talked about trying for another kid but that his PED use have proved harmful. Larry Wheels talked openly about he 10 year stint on steroids, and his recent decision to switch to TRT. Older athletes like Michael Todd have talked about TRT making you feel like you can still be competitive. Then I discovered Travis Graham, from the youtube channel, The Natural Alpha - a powerlifter in his mid-40s talking about ways in which you can be and stay strong in a natural way. He has also recently started getting into arm-wrestling, so I thought I'd talk to him and hear his thoughts on the matter." I hope you enjoy the show

11/18/2022
Talk to any strength coach and they will go on and on about the Central Nervous System being of chief importance. Well, they're right.

I explain how and why in this episode. Link to LIFTING FUEL. Use code ALPHA15 for 15% off. https://thenaturalalpha.square.site/ I also take a shot at being slightly political.

Uphill Sprints for Fat Loss, Grass-fed Beef, Old School Hypertrophy Method

3/9/2021
1. Uphill sprints place less impact on the joints that regular sprints, as well as create greater type 2 recruitment, thus sparring, or even, building muscle! 2. I talk about WHERE to buy grass-fed/finished beef. butcherbox.ca is a good start but the most cost effective is a simple google search. 3. Rest/Pause training is where you take a set to failure at 6-10 reps; wait 15 seconds; do another few reps to failure; wait 15 seconds; etc....until you can just barely squeeze out 1 rep. This is a variation of Heavy Duty training made famous by Arthur Jones, Mike Mentzer, and 6 time Mr. Olympia Dorian Yates.
