Heavy Breathing & Finding Your Worth with The True MDSM Mastermind Mike Delgado
Whats up once again, Nerdz! We are back after our hibernation hiatus. We be relocating cities, jobs, and gyms, and it has been a whirlwind; we are now based in San Diego California and our gym HQ is the infamous Iron Mongers gym of North County. Our new roots here in SD is all owed to Iron Mongers so it is only right we have one of the best coaches around who is based there - Coach Mike Delgado of The True MDSM. Mike found lifting while in recovery and since used is as a foundation to turn his life around and become one of my favorite coaches to work with in his way to communicate and his approach to lifting which is to feel it. Feel it first so then all the theory can assimilate. He helped me with my bench and since helped me refine my deadlift too. Though he is a great coach, Mike is a real homie. He is in the process of creating a non-profit to help those in recovery and provide the help to information to see your worth that he wished he had and sees the need for in the community. We talk about the very simple yet profound statement of: If you are unhappy with the state of things, be the answer to the void you see. We hope you enjoy and learn something. Look out for all he has coming because it is bound to something special. Now lets get back to this thing we call...the Nerds Who Lift Podcast

PEDs & Females in Strength Sports with Christina Sisk
Whatsup Nerdz! We are very excited about this weeks episode. Brought to light by Miss. Amber Dawn and shared with our badass guest Christina Sisk. Christina is a 75kg Elite Level Powerlifter who gave us the opportunity to sit down with her and discuss female PED usage. This is a rather sensitive topic, but one that should be discussed more openly and frequently. We want to note that in no way are we promoting PED usage, rather we wanted to create an open discussion about the very real world of PED usage with females and particularly females within the strength sport world. This discussion will hopefully be informative and help diminish that fear or stigma that surrounds PED usage. Thank you for tuning in!

Recovery Strategies 101
Whats up Nerdz, On this week's episode Miss Amber Dawn and Nicholas dive into the most overlooked yet effective recovery strategies that everyone should be implementing. It is often overlooked that how hard you train does not correlate to how strong you become or your results, BUT how much you can recover from, consistently, that produces the strength and results you're working towards. From food, sleep, meditation, self massage, and understanding sympathetic vs. parasympathetic nerve triggers. We hope this either uncovers a recovery tool you did not know, forgot about, or reinforced. Enjoy, Nerdz, and happy training!

What's up, Nerdz On this week's episode of NWL; Miss Amber Dawn and I chatted with the master minds behind Activated Performance - Seth and Meana Albersworth. Seth and Meana are both originally from the Great North that is Canada but now reside in sunny Florida where they run and operate their business Activated Performance. They both share content of their combined lifting and fitness knowledge while also slangin' some spiffy threads. I really enjoyed picking their brains because each is an accomplished and seasoned athlete in their own right, and I love how the knowledge they share is not just about sharing information but about education so you understand the 'why' and begin to comprehend for yourself. Go follow, support, and learn you some knowledge from them, because they have a lot to share. So kick back and tune in to this week's episode of...the Nerds Who Lift Podcast.
