  1. Ditto on the opener, keep it as is I like it, for those that don’t as you said there’s this thing called fast forward.

    One question you mentioned something you’re calling a relaxed hang that you do for 1 min 15 secs and has helped your shoulders a lot. I’d like to try it could you maybe describe it a little more? I recently heard Steve Maxwell on the JRE podcast discussing a hang that sounds similar, saying it’s very helpful so you might be on to something. They discuss it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wltxTeZpzkw&t=5115s but not sure if that’s it.

    Love the show!

  2. Totally agree with what Brian said. I love how you share your personal life and struggles with us. Even though i’ve never met you in person, Joe (although i will when i come over and do your CPPS course) it feels like i’ve known you for ages and we’re good friends- as i know so much about you. It’s incredible how much you give of your time for others and especially this podcast all for free.
    Keep smashing your goals and well done for achieving your 4 goals you set 12ish weeks ago. Keep doing what you’re doing as there’s always going to be that 1% who will try to pull you down.

  3. Brian – As always, your feedback and continued support means a LOT! Thanks for taking the time to post your comment. I really appreciate it.

  4. F that DAN. I have listened to all of the podcasts and have learned so much from them. I enjoy the fact that Joe shares his personal stories with the world. It shows what a regular guy he his. He has the same challenges that any regular guy does. Wife, kids parents and career. Anyone who can go from training top athletes,consulting with WWE then donate his valuable time to do a free podcast in one day is amazing. I have personal experience with this. I have met Joe a few times. I have had the opportunity to get some personal instruction from him. I have no doubt that he treated me as well as he does Cushing, HHH or any other of this “A” list clients. I have been treated awesome by Joe. In fact anyone who listens to the show gets “A” list information for FREE! Thanks Joe, keep the current format. I treasure your advise, the instruction you give and counsel. WHAT YOU DO MATTERS!!!
