I get asked questions all the time about the squat – so that’s what we get to on this podcast. I love these chances to answer the questions you guys have written in.

I especially liked talking about the squat in this podcast, because I’ve gone through a revolution in the way I look at the squat. I mean, I’ve broken world records and have coached the strongest athletes in America. But I dove into the research while I was writing my new book, Squat Science, and I now look at the squat in a different light. (We talk about that in the podcast as well!)
