podcasts for powerlifters

Podcasts for Powerlifters 2021 | My Favorites and Recommendations

This post contains a compilation of my favourite podcasts for powerlifters. They are not all powerlifting-specific (some of strength-focused), but they all benefit powerlifting training.

These are my favourite podcasts as a powerlifter. They are not all about powerlifting specifically, but I found value in them as someone in the iron game. The podcasts range in topics and formats – they cover scientific principles of training, discuss the latest research in the field,  talk about the history of strength training, interview legends of the sport, and host Q&A’s.

I’ve included the YouTube links below, but they can also be found in popular podcast apps.

Iron Culture Podcast

Iron Culture was started by Eric Helms and Omar Isuf as a means of exploring the world of physical culture and attempting to distill a unified philosophy of lifting and to help listeners find greater meaning from the iron. The lifting community has become fractured over the last ~70 years and this Podcast will attempt to explore the fundamental threads that unite these different tribes.

The Podcast focuses on dispensing practical, useful information to the listener, bouncing from history, to philosophy, to contemporary lifting culture issues, to science. This can range from teaching the audience about lifting, programming, nutrition, supplements/PEDs and the history of lifting culture.
