Hardest. Workouts. Ever? New podcast is live!

Written by joelsnape

What’s the hardest workout you’ve ever done? Did it actually make you any better at the thing you were training for, or just tired? And was it too hard…or not hard enough? These are the sorts of things we’re discussing in the new podcast, alongside what’s happened at the Olympics, the only steroid-related study you need to memorise the name of, desserts that will help you get jacked and how to look like Mike Haggar (or, if you’re a lady, Chun Li). Also, you get to hear Joel’s impression of Batman. Show notes after the link!
