Whoa...it's a full on fully man. Jim Breuer - Half baked
Ooh good guess, but what I'm thinking of preceded that movie by 7 years.

not sure how to ask a question for the podcast, so I will ask it here for now. I am new to weightlifting, having training for crossfit for 6 years. I'm 41 years old and have a coach who programs for me and has eyes on me, in a small group personal training environment, but not a weightlifting-specific gym. I workout 4 times per week. Up until recently, two of those workouts have been weightlifting specific and two more gymnastics-oriented. The last couple of months have focused on weightlifting as I plan to do a meet this weekend :) :)

I'm wondering about how you program for someone like me in the whole-year cycle. Recently, I heard a podcast where Sean Waxman was interviewed and he talked about how his lifters take two months "totally off" from weightlifting every year. I have typically had deload weeks or weeks off from training (crossfit) but never two months off.

Thanks to you both. I have enjoyed listening to your podcast so far. I love soaking up the knowledge and enjoy the banter :)
