27 Apr Greg Nuckols – A Masterclass In The Squat

(#171) Greg Nuckols, Founder of Strengtheory, joins me on the podcast this week to talk all about squatting – and so much more.

Greg is a strength coach, world-class drug free powerlifter, fitness writer, and creator of Strengtheory. His passion is synthesizing scientific research and in-the-trenches experience to stay at the forefront of the strength game, and to become the best coach and athlete possible. With best lifts including a 755 lb squat, a 475 lb bench press, and a 725 lb deadlift, Greg has become one of the strongest drug-free athletes in the world.

During this interview, Greg and I drill down on some of the most frequently asked questions people have when it comes to the squat. You’ll learn key insights about spine extension, bracing techniques, common mistakes, and most importantly, how to experiment with your training so you can figure out what works best for you.
