The strength and fitness industry has for too long been dominated by overly-tan, annoyingly-loud YouTube celebrities with less than factual content, aka broscience. Tune in to Strength Chat – hosted by a group of Coaches and Athletes with over 60 years of combined experience – as they talk fact, science, and strength with world-renowned strength, conditioning, and rehab professionals.
Today’s guest is none other than Dave Freakin’ Lipson! For those who don’t know, Dave is a CrossFit HQ Staff Member, coach, athlete, writer, and co-owner of Thundrbro, an up-and-coming training, lifestyle, and supplement company focused on the intersection between hypertrophy training and functional/skill training.
Dave’s background is as a strength & conditioning coach for professional MLB and NFL players, celebrities, elite CrossFit athletes (including his wife and 2014 Games Champion Camille Leblanc-Bazinet) and he is considered one of the top CrossFit coaches in the industry!
On this episode our hosts and Dave discuss candidly topics ranging from CrossFit, it’s effect on the growth of other strength sports, specialization, and of course comparisons between CF athletes and powerlifters! Dave also walks us through his training philosophy and approach working with his athletes through Thundrbro.
A fantastic episode with an awesome dude! To end, we’ll leave you with this golden nugget from the show:
Dave: “When I was growing up, powerlifters looked like potatoes!”
