PowerCast #151 – Alan Thrall

Our guest for episode #151 is a local dude. Alan Thrall has a popular YouTube channel filled with instructional lifting videos and has a strongman gym in here Sacramento. Somehow we’d never crossed paths with him before, but you can bet it will happen a lot more in the future. Alan has a very practical approach to training, and to creating how to lift videos. His poop story from his days in the Marines is for sure in our top 10.

  1. You mention Rippetoe only teaching people to skwaat one way which is obviously not for everyone. I primarily teach new lifters, and teach them the Rippetoe method. Apart from low bar high bar and sumo I don’t really know any other methods of back squat. Is there a definitive guide somewhere which outlines the different methods and when each is suited for a person? Would be good to be able to customise things that much more for the body types I encounter.
