In this episode, I sit down with Joe De Sena. Joe is the founder and CEO of Spartan Race.

After building a multimillion-dollar pool and construction business in college, and creating a Wall Street trading firm, De Sena set his sights on ripping 100 million people off their couches by creating the Spartan lifestyle.

Following a successful career on Wall Street, De Sena moved his family to Pittsfield, Vermont to operate an organic farm, a bed and breakfast, and a general store for hikers. It was here his passion grew for ultramarathons, adventure races, and endurance events, and thus the idea for Spartan was born.

Sit back relax, and enjoy!

When you hear the word rookie, what do you think? What initially pops into your head?

You probably think of a beginner or novice athlete, or someone in their first year on the job, like a rookie police officer.

Or, maybe you think of the baseball movie with Dennis Quaid, isn't that called The Rookie? It has been 15 years since I have seen it but, I thought it was pretty good. I am a sucker for a sports movie.

Regardless, when you hear the word rookie, you also probably think of the expression, "rookie mistake."

That is what we are going to focus on today, specifically, five rookie powerlifting mistakes.

1: Trying to hit unrealistically big PRs at the meet.
2: Doing too much or too little hypertrophy work.
3: Overvaluing the program.
4: Not competing frequently enough.
5: Not thinking enough about longevity.

Although I call these rookie mistakes, these mistakes are not limited to rookies.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

In this episode, I answer seven listener questions. 

Questions on the show:

  1. What are your favorite training splits for building muscle?
  2. How often do you program touch and go reps on the bench press for your powerlifting clients?
  3. I have heard you talk about the concept of “junk volume” on the podcast before, but how does someone know if the amount of volume they are doing is junk volume?
  4. In general, how long should you rest between sets?
  5. Realistically, how frequently should you be hitting new PRs?
  6. What do you say to a client who had a bad training session or a bad meet day performance?
  7. If someone wants to compete in bodybuilding/physique and powerlifting, how do you recommend doing that from a scheduling standpoint?
