Tequila fueled stories of strength w/ Chris Moore

Subscribe: iTunes/Stitcher

This week I tell a story about a high school experiment in strongman training, and why that made a huge impact on the rest of my training and coaching career. I think you’ll dig it.

Also, some of your training questions answered…

  • The best way to learn the basics of human physiology and nutrition.
  • Thoughts on strongman training methods.
  • How to train for strength if you work crazy shifts. Firemen and police officers can relate.
  • How do you know when you’re ready for more advanced programming?
  • My best advice for aspiring writers.
  • My favorite squat program.
  • How to gain weight for weightlifting
  • How can you isolate and strengthen the thoracic spine?
  • If I could go back, how I would train different and why.
  • What to do if your lower back get’s super pumped and uncomfortable during training, etc.



Tonight’s tunes are “Fire it up” and “Little Motel” by Modest Mouse. Do a good thing. Support the artists you love. Buy more music!

I hope you enjoy the show. Cheers!

Chris Moore is a writer, recovering meathead, fledgling raconteur and rabid imbiber. He's also cohost and resident potty mouth on Barbell Shrugged, a weekly podcast devoted to Crossfit, strength, fitness and all things brash. His experience is drawn from over twenty-years spent training for and competing in American Football, Powerlifting, a bit of strongman and a dash of mixed martial arts. Also, it's possible that he's had one too many cups of coffee. A caffeine fever is a hell of a thing, you know?
