What a great episode.

I enjoyed the discussion about team switching . Especially concerning dishonesty when changing teams/coaches. Change is bound to happen, but everyone should be mature enough to handle it with honesty and integrity. Being a newer coach, I really liked hearing the tradition of coaches coming together to discuss what's best for the athlete and team, instead of trying to snipe athletes from one another. I hope this is a practice we begin to cultivate again as a community.

The Power or "Nah" discussion is gold that everyone needs to understand. It seems over and over yall's responses to questions involve "what attributes am I trying to develop with this exercise?" Often times this requires the lifter to leave their ego behind in pursuit of doing it right!

Hi Greg, just bought the book and want to try level 3 program but I'm confused about the squat percentages. On day 1 the back squat calls for 8 reps at 70%. Is 70% based of my best single?? If so, that would beat my best 8 reps pr by 5kg haha
Yes. You'll need to adjust weights if you're not conditioned for those higher reps.

Loved what Ursula said about empowering women. If I am ever good ( I just started), I will work with Ursula in the future for all women.
