  1. What a fascinating interview! To be honest, some of the things David talked about I would need to see, but he shared a lot of great insight that I can apply to my fitness regimen as well as my career as an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor. What really resonated with me that David said was, “I pride myself on integrity. So whatever’s true, that’s what I’m behind, ok, so if I’m wrong, teach me how to be right. There’s no restriction for me on that”, as well as, “I like to absorb what is useful, discard what is not, and then add what is uniquely your own.” Thank you, Coach Joe! -Teacher Lance

  2. Hi Joe, not really a comment on the episode but something I’d be interested in hearing your views on.
    Any thoughts on training/stretching more on one side to address imbalances?
    Specifically when someone has a tight muscle – for example left hip flexor – Is stretching both hip flexors equally – less effective than stretching more on the problematic side?
    I was just thinking in terms of effect on issues like lower back tightness/stiffness. An example could be left sided lower back pain that can be caused by a tight/shortened Left hip flexor/adductors, right Glute, right QL etc
    I feel it might be uncommon to train specifically and differently for different sides of the body and most people will fall into a trap of equally stretching/strengthening both sides – is this much less effective and not really helping to address the imbalance which can lead to further issues?
    Love the podcasts and currently in the second week of my second cycle of Rebuilt 2.0. Loved the first 12 weeks but absolutely hated you for the 1.5 rep speed skater squats and the drop set!
