Episode 11 - The Seal Row Strikes Back

October 25, 2020
Gather round as Berkhan unveils the astounding conclusion to the Seal Row Competition Saga, before we field listener questions about technical improvement versus muscular adaptation in the development of strength, when you can expect a hard copy of The Leangains Method, why the overhead press is all about that core, and whether or not the natural lifting formula has stood the test of time. (And if you’ve ever wanted to know how and why to measure your wingspan – this is the ep for you.)
