    Strength Talk Interviews, "The Bench Monster", Ryan Kennelly

    in Sports

    We are back, B*&ches!!!!  Unlike any other show, we are Strength Talk Radio try to bring you the best in powerlifting, we call ourselves “powerlifting voice” for a reason; It is because we are the only radio show that brings you the best in powerlifting and powerlifting only!!  So how do we prove that we are powerlifting voice?  We get the one and only Ryan Kennelly, for a one and only interview he will do answering the questions about his recent past.  Never again will he talk about what happened.     

    Ryan has been out of the game for a while and we all heard why.  But was it all true?  Not one website, not one radio show or podcast and not even one article explained Ryan’s side of what happened, all the information out there was completely speculation, views from others that did not know the whole story and for all of us at STR, well that’s just unacceptable!!  So because of that we reached out to Ryan, to give him the opportunity to explain his side, what he was fighting for, and most important, to kill the rumors. 

    Ryan without a doubt is one of best of all time bench pressers.  His 1076 was without a doubt without controversy one of the best multiply benches ever.  We have seen the videos, we now know Ryan is back and wants what is his, the all-time multiply bench, the biggest bench ever.  But will he get it?  Does he have enough to come back and hit an 1100+ bench?   And most important, at what event will smash this record.  And not to mention, will he ever challenge Tiny Meeker, to finally set to rest, who is the best?!?!    

    Find out all these answers, the only true powerlifting radio show!!

    DON’T MISS THE BIGGEST SHOW OF STR HISTORY, Ryan “The Bench Monster” Kennelly!!

    Interview: Sean Katterle, Hardcore Powerlifting
    Sean is no stranger to controversy and if you know Sean you know he is not afraid to speak his mind.  Some people disagree with his view on "geared" lifting, but one thing you cant disagree with, is his passion for the sport.

And if it is, why?  Is it because he is stepping on toes? Or, is he truly rotating the clock backwards taking away further advancement of strength?  And if all Sean wants is to make this sport creditable and for our elite athletes to finally get paid, what is the controversy?  
    Listen as we discuss what Sean thinks of the future of powerlifting as he answers the questions.  Also, listen as we discuss his next promotion Kings of the Bench 8 Invitational, Oct 20th at the Rivera Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas NV...

    NATURAL STRENGTH NIGHT - Old-School Natural Strength Training - Guest Tommy Kono

    in Fitness

    Host Bob Whelan, Guest Tommy Kono (Please visit MindForceRadio.com for more info.)

    Natural Strength Night is an informative, humorous, sometimes a little raucous, good-time of myth busting and honest training information from the trenches. We strive to help everyone involved with old school strength training (without steroids) to not make some common training mistakes. Along with great information, you'll hear a fair share of steroid bashing, flamingo sightings, breaking goons, iron game history, and honest drug-free training information from various leaders and strength coaches in the field to help you get real results!  If your primary training information comes from reading "Muscle & Fiction" magazine we'll help get you straightened out. If you love high-intensity strength training, dinosaur style training and just like lifting heavy weights ... or loved Jack Lalanne, Sandow, Grimek, Peary Rader's old Iron Man magazine, Brad Steiner's articles, Stuart McRobert's Hardgainer, Iron Nation, Osmo Kiiha's The Iron Master, you will love the show.
