#88 - A Chat from Down Under with Joel Rasmussen
3 days ago
SSOC intern Joel Rasmussen flew all the way from Adelaide, Australia to join the Barbell Logic podcast, en route to a Starting Strength seminar in Wichita Falls. While he was in town, Matt and Scott chatted with him about establishing a home gym out of his garage in Adelaide, his coaching experience as an intern with SSOC, and how he managed to rehab his "stuffed" back. Joel discovered strength training first with the Stronglifts 5x5 program, but he found himself frequently injured due to poor lifting technique. He eventually looked into Starting Strength as a resource to fix his form, which led to signing up with Starting Strength Online Coaching as a client. Joel made excellent progress with SSOC, but unfortunately suffered a freak back injury when he fell off a ladder while doing handiwork around the house. He sustained multiple grade 3 herniations in his lumbar spine. He experienced severe back pain, lost sensation in his foot, and exhibited "foot drop." Joel went to the doctor for imaging and treatment; they told him to expect a lengthy rehab process with continuous pain, at least six months. Undaunted, Joel soldiered on with his training, and after consulting another SSOC coach and DPT, Will Morris, he was able to creatively use partial pulls and other loaded movements to regain most of his strength, and in a much shorter time period than the doctor had advised. His experience with back injury recovery has informed his coaching practice and given him the confidence to overcome future setbacks in his training. Joel now coaches out of his home in Adelaide as well as handling online clients at SSOC.

EXCELLENT a must listen for all who train.
Simple, hard, effective. This podcast is just as effective as it's training methodology by being simple to understand, hits hard against the "common" knowledge of the day by effectively and systematically approaching the hows, whys, and whats of strength training. A must listen for all who train or want to get stronger. Come for strength, stay for Scott Hambrick's voice

If you want to train smarter and more efficiently, then you need to listen to Scott Hambrick and Matt Reynolds. Barbell Logic is the best strength/Fitness podcast out there. I’ve listened to many different podcasts in this genre, and these guys stand out among the crowd for the quality and delivery of their content. I look forward to many more podcasts.

The Hardcore History of strength training podcasts
This has become my favorite podcast in no time. Very informative. The two hosts complement each other nicely: you’ve got Matt - a frantic, word spitting energy ball, combined with Scott - who should start an alternative career as an audio book narrator.
Just start with episode 1 and work your way up (especially ‘Simple, hard, effective’, ‘ A quick and dirty guide to barbell physics’ and ‘Stress, recovery, adaptation’ are golden).
And yeah, it’s all pretty American and from time to time they tend to go overboard with the locker room talk. But look past that, and you’ve got yourself a podcast that you would recommend to the next random person that says hello.
But most of all, it motivates me to train better. You run out of excuses pretty fast when you hear a stage 4 cancer patient talking about training through 4 years of chemo. Or an 80+ year old talking about making deadlift PR’s as if she’s sharing cookie recipes.
And if you don’t get the Hardcore History-reference, do yourself a favor and look that up too.
