  1. Just wondering if this podcast and quite a few others are still offered as it just says error code when opened, and can not find them across any other podcasting platforms.

    This is podcast #61

    Thank you

  2. Coach Defranco,

    When you were talking about using a training max and then basing percentages of that, then going for broke on the last set, if you were on your last set of a 5×5, for example, and got 7 reps, would you recommend bumping your training max up 5-10 pounds or using a higher percentage the next week around to aid in progressively overloading the athlete?

    Thanks for your time, love the podcast!
