    Should powerlifting meets only allow two attempts per lift? | Canada athletes vs Texas athletes

    15 MAY. 2024 · Prompted by a Reddit question, we talked through the impact of reducing attempts from three attempts per lift to two attempts per lift. Would meets move faster? Would warmup rooms be chaos?   We also compared the top 10 Canadian athletes and the top 10 Texan athletes.

    Will Instagram changes kill powerlifting memes?

    8 MAY. 2024 · It looks like changes are afoot. Instagram may be changing how its algorithm serves up shared (versus original) content. Will this entirely change the meme game? We also ran down lists of the most intelligent animals and discussed some more surprising genetic traits (in humans).

    Does looking jacked always make a good impression ?

    1 MAY. 2024 · We’ve always been told not to judge a book by its cover, but does that stop us? No! Even when it’s not a good idea. Why do we make these judgments?   We look at three physical characteristics that humans tend to let themselves be influenced by when judging the people we meet. Some things can be changed through reasonable effort (getting muscles), but others are much tougher (or impossible). Is being more muscular always a plus?   Sebastian Brambila https://www.instagram.com/sebastian_brambila) ran the board and chimed in on this one.   Listener resources:   Judging by faces: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/trust-games/202201/what-we-decide-about-people-based-on-their-appearance   Judging by height: https://www.apa.org/monitor/julaug04/standing   Judging by muscles: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/02/160224164349.htm Do you have a question for one of our Friday “One Good Question” episodes?

    How come some powerlifting rules make no sense?

    24 ABR. 2024 · If short lifters can use blocks under their feet in competition, why can’t tall lifters use a taller bench? That’s just one example, but when you take a closer look there are definitely some things that don’t make sense.   We also talk NBA, Taylor Swift, local crime, and bidets.   Sebastian Brambila https://www.instagram.com/sebastian_brambila) ran the board and chimed in on this one.   Do you have a question for one of our Friday “One Good Question” episodes?

Any question is fair game, but most involve health, fitness, nutrition, mental health, culture…even sex. They examine common misconceptions and then try to get to the correct answer -- often with the help of subject matter experts. They walk away with a better sense of the facts…and so do you. Full episodes every Wednesday. Shorter episodes every Friday, dedicated to answering a question from listeners.
