  1. Hey Joe,
    I was looking over the SB911 protocol and noticed the max effort days are back to back on Monday and Tuesday. I have usually heard, even from your podcast, that you should space high intensity CNS workouts 48 hours apart to allow full recovery. I’m sure there is a good reason the program is set up like this, I just like to know the why as much as the how. If you could shed any light on the subject it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for all the great stuff you are putting out there!

  2. Sir,
    As always, a solid podcast. I had two questions that I was hoping you may be able to address on your podcast at some point. 1) When, if ever, does something you learned from another or read in a book become your own knowledge? Do you have to tweak and adapt that info to make it your own, use it for your years or will it always be a matter of, “According to so and so…”? You never want to rip someone off but I would think it equally bad to spend half your time quoting others to the point of appearing as though you have no original thoughts. (2) I know it’s not exactly your main focus, but thoughts on adapting Cal Dietz’s Triphasic Training for powerlifting or other strength based sport (Highland games, Strongman etc.)? How would you do it and is it worth the effort? Thanks for all you do.

  3. Hey Joe, quick question for you. I was wondering if you could inform us viewers on some of the programing you do with Stephanie. You have a TON of information out about guy programming but not too much about girls. Thanks for all the free information you give. You’re the best!

  4. Hey Joe!!!
    Another great podcast!! Very inspirational, I laughed and I cried and laughed some more. Her story of Triple H telling her to enjoy the moment and being such an inspiration to their daughters got me as my wife and I have two young daughters and we were just discussing something similar the other day. Thank you.

    My question regarding Stephanie’s workouts is, Triple H mentioned in his interview how sometimes he is just finishing up his warm-up and Stephanie is finishing her workout. Granted he may have been exaggerating a bit but what does Stephanie’s warm-up look like or consist of? My wife is beginning to get more into weightlifting (thanks to you, your podcasts, and following the #MidnightWorkouts) so I was curious what type of warm-up do you have Stephanie and your female clients perform? Is it any or much different from what your male athletes perform?

    Thanks again for all that you do Joe. It is truly appreciative.
