AAU Meet Review

Listen as we discuss the AAU North American Championships.  We will also discuss on how our local powerlifter faired.  Also, we will breakdown the meet as a whole and give you our opinion on "how was the meet?",  Good Bad or indifferent. 

Multiply Gear,  Does it hurt more than help, and is it worth it?

Last show we interviewed Tom Carnaghi a 30 year veteran of the sport and we discussed the events leading up to and after his heart attack.  There was on part of the interview that peeked our researchers interest, the stretching of his aorta due to lifting. We asked ourselves this question, "Can multiply increase thoracic pressure so bad over time  resulting a damaged aorta"? (yes we are geeks)  We are going to bring Michael Palmieri (Director of Performance and Research at the Institute of Sport Science and Athletic Conditioning) back as he helps us answer this question.  Michael has 20 years of experience researching topics like this, so no one better to help us understand this question.    If you lift multiply or maybe even some single ply, don't miss this show.  We promise, we wont make it to geeky
