John Gaglione: Squatting 800 Pounds in 6 Weight Classes
Sep 21, 2020
John Gaglione

Today we're talking to powerlifter, coach, gym owner, and now-aspiring bodybuilder John Gaglione. John has been in the powerlifting game for well over a decade, and he’s one of the only — if not the only — athletes to squat 800 pounds or more across six different weight categories. John joins the show to talk about changing his approach to training over the past few years, and why specificity might not be a strength athlete’s best friend. We also talk about the benefits of bodybuilding-style training for different types of strength athletes and maintaining strength during a significant weight cut.
