There are a lot of tasks we’re called to do as men. Among other things, your physical strength will make the difference between your ability to accomplish those tasks or not.
My guest today is Matt Reynolds, the founder of Starting Strength Online Coaching and a man who has nearly 20 years of experience competing in strength sports and coaching barbell-based strength and conditioning. He has not only created one of the premier online coaching services on the planet, he is my personal coach.
Today he’s here to share why all men should consider adding barbell training to their routine, the core lifts we should work on improving, how strength training improves mental toughness, and how to get started on your journey to build more strength.
My guest today is Matt Reynolds. As I mentioned before, has nearly 20 years of experience competing in strength sports and coaching barbell-based strength and conditioning.
The guy first totaled “elite” in powerlifting in 2004, won his professional status in the sport of Strongman in 2006, and founded one of the strongest and largest pure-strength gyms in the country, STRONG Gym (PowerliftingWatch Gym of the Year 2013 and 2014).
Matt is a holds his Starting Strength Certification and has traveled throughout the country serving as staff coach with Mark Rippetoe for Starting Seminars.
But, rather than talk about the rest of his accomplishments, I think the best compliment I can pay the man is that he is a great coach. I know from experience as he’s been coaching me for the past two months and I can tell you I have gotten a lot stronger in a very short time.
Gentlemen, without further delay, let’s dig into this conversation with my strength coach, Mr. Matt Reynolds.
