Episode 6: Matt I. and Matt S. discuss programming for meets. Matt S. talks about being an amateur coach, and the pressure of a 9-5 atop that. The difficulties of training, and programming your own cycle, while writing everyone else’s programs as well. Matt I. talks about his personal experience with training for programs and the importance of every lift and how they build on each other. The guys talk about missing gym days, and how to recover and build around that. They also talk about different gear, and the advantages of gear for squat, bench, and deadlift. Believe it or not, ladies and gentlemen, even Matt Israelson needs coaching. He gives Matt S. some great tips on coaching, and the idea of surrounding yourself with people who have good attitudes about lifting. The guys discuss the Westside training philosophies, and the importance of transparency in a team. The guys answer more fan questions, and as (almost) always, a new workout of the week!
