Barbell Mesearch EP 16: Half Squats with Joel Seedman and Christian Thibaudeau
April 28, 2020
The internet has brought information to our fingertips. All of the information. However, it has yet to develop critical thinking or civility. Joel and Christian may disagree on some things but instead of degrading one another they focus instead on where their ideas coincide and show an example for other professionals in how to conduct themselves in an online world. A little mutual respect goes a long way. Check it out to see their thoughts on social media etiquette, research methodology, Westside Barbell, marketing, and more. Plus, see if anyone points out to Joel that he has two posters on his wall with his name on them (hint: no one did, we are all dicks and wanted to give his haters more fodder). This was a great talk with two very big personalities in the fitness world that have both spent a lot of time in the trenches and have weathered a variety of different fads in fitness, always coming out on top.
