Iron Culture was started by Eric Helms and Omar Isuf as a means of exploring the world of physical culture and attempting to distill a unified philosophy of lifting and to help listeners find greater meaning from the iron. The lifting community has become fractured over the last ~70 years and this Podcast will attempt to explore the fundamental threads that unite these different tribes. The Podcast focuses on dispensing practical, useful information to the listener, bouncing from history, to ...
 
Life’s too short to be half right! Veteran podcasters Mike "Silent Mike" Farr and Jim McDonald try to answer a single question without any research – then ask an expert what they got right or wrong. Any question is fair game, but most involve health, fitness, nutrition, mental health, culture…even sex. They walk away with a better sense of the facts…and so do you. Business inquiries: Jim@thejimmcd.com
 
Think about a time when you followed your gut and made a choice that was less than obvious to everyone but you. Maybe you were nervous, but you had the courage to throw everyone's advice out the window and push forward into what seemed right. Or maybe a time when you someone else's less than obvious choice, and you had to live up to the trust they've put in you. What happened next? Were you a hero…or did it all blow up in your face? Were lessons learned or did it ultimately mean nothing? Jim ...

The world is packing a lot of fear and anxiety into every day right now. That can complicate anyone’s emotions (and diet). It's especially for those of us who tend to be emotional eaters. Is staying away from the foods we love most the only answer? Why do we connect certain activities with food? Can we uncover the underlying reasons for our emotion…
 
What's up Pride! In the EP I traveled down to the Mecca of BJJ/MMA training in Philadelphia Balance Studio owned by Ricardo and Phil Migliarese. They have been the early pioneers of MMA and BJJ in the US with a very large following of student and successful fighters. I got the time to sit and chat with Ricardo (after rolling with him). Ricardo talk…
 
Ten years ago, any supposedly knowledgeable PT would be making judicious use of the friendly blue foam roller with clients. Ten years later, the blue idol has fallen out of fashion and we've seen a trend towards minimalism. Stretching is overrated. Doing a squat will prepare you to squat and that is the end of the story. Or is it? Co-owners Eric He…
 
We invited our old friend and training partner, Fat Dan, into the studio to talk about his private security business, and the disruptions were all facing in the wake of the Coronavirus. Why do people continue to put themselves in unsafe, crowded situations right now? Should you quit your full-time job to work for yourself? What (or who) is Diet Car…
 
Rewind the clock. The year is 2009, Lady Gaga is all the rage, MySpace is THE social media platform and if you eat carbs after 6 pm, you are sabotaging your gains. Enjoy this episode of co-hosts Eric Helms and Omar Isuf reminiscing on their early days as lifting enthusiasts. You'll learn about the most anabolic chili, how far Eric is willing to go …
 
While waiting around for a guest who we couldn’t quite reach on the phone, we talked ended up talking about some things that people strive for that are hard…or even impossible to reach. Similar to a recent episode of the podcast “Reply All,” we’re trying to identify a children’s horror movie or TV show from the 90s. Can you help? Check the episode …
 
What is aesthetic? While the hosts agree on what they consider aesthetic in a physique (except for the importance of calves), individual opinions vary drastically. Despite the variety of opinions, physique sport judges have the difficult task of ranking competitors in multiple divisions. In this episode, we are joined by first-time guests Chris Bum…
 
A few weeks ago, our good friend Jacob Ross was very sick but he didn’t know it. What he thought was a pinched nerve turned out to be a dangerous, and potentially lethal, accumulation of fluid around his heart. He’s much better now, so we can ask: how could this have happened to a young, healthy guy? What were the symptoms and why did he pass them …
 
Omar and Eric realized that if they maintained their current totals, and cut to the 59kg class, they’d rank among the top 10 raw drug-free powerlifters in the world. In this episode, they bring on three researchers/coaches/athletes: Kedric Kwan, David Nolan, and Arthur Lynch, experts who in the course of their ongoing PhDs have published the only p…
 
We’re not runners, so we’re definitely not racers. We followed up last week’s episode on starting to run with a conversation about setting a goal to compete on one of a couple of popular types of races. Both of these have large, supportive communities and are considered to be a lot of fun. Is the prep the same for both races? Can you do it alone? D…
 
Hey Pride, in this EP I head to New York where I trained at Believe Elite Athletic Training Facility owned by my buddy John Rhan. John is a phenomenal coach who actually started as a government agent then switched his career to training athletes and running a gym. His story is touching on how it all started with one special athlete. We also get to …
 
Dr. Melissa Davis is a Renaissance Periodization consultant and coach with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, who specializes in behavior change. She is also no stranger to setting and achieving difficult goals as a black belt in Brazilian jujitsu who is a multi-time masters world champion. Join us this week on Iron Culture as we explore the science and prac…
 
What's up Pride! This is the start of season 2 and we are coming out swinging to bring you even better content and podcasts to listen to. In this first EP we have Jared who is the owner of Depth Before Dishonor Squat Co. Which is one of the biggest clothing companies in the sport of powerlifting & strongman! Jared has unique designs that are origin…
 
A lot of people grew up running for sports, but plenty of people stop just as soon as they can and never do it again. We ask runners James Van Prooyen & Rich Nicholes to tell us how to get started (or started again). Once you get your ass off the couch, what does the first day of running look like? What should your initial goals look like? What’s a…
 
Brett Gibbs is one of the current icons of IPF powerlifting. Having placed 1st or 2nd in the 83kg class every year since 2014 at IPF Worlds, competing sometimes in both equipped and raw divisions, he’s elite among even other elite lifters. However, what is perhaps most interesting, is how his outlook on the sport and his outlook on winning has chan…
 
We finally connect with Kalle Beck, the man behind StartingStrongman.com. If you saw the Facebook commercial during the Super Bowl, the Oscars, etc., you’ve seen Kalle and some of the members of the online strongman community he started years ago. How did he get interested in strongman in the first place? Did he really quit his job so he could comp…
 
Eric & Omar are joined once again by guests Gabrielle Fundaro and Mike Tuchscherer to discuss a seemingly taboo concept in the "evidence-based" fitness community: intuition. Find out how intuitive eating & autoregulation are related and why listening to biological feedback has a high degree of utility. Our subjective experiences can provide useful …
 
Our good friend Omar Isuf is in town, so he joined us for a conversation in which we actually talk quite a bit about celebrity, fitness, and how Omar accomplished his recent transformation? So much of the coverage of celebrities who get jacked revolves around their training, but does anyone believe they don’t use PEDs? Was Kobe Bryant’s death come …
 
This week Omar and Eric sit down with Greg Nuckols and Sohee Lee. Both are fantastic science communicators in the world of fitness, but specifically, they both have expertise in sex differences among lifters. Greg did his master's thesis specifically looking at sex differences in inter-set recovery during resistance training, while Sohee is in the …
 
In a “just us” episode, we take a look at a couple articles claiming to track the top fitness trends for 2020 – notably one from Men’s Health. Will personal trainers really be like rock stars in 2020? Are you really working out hard enough to need an extensive recovery plan, or is a regular good night’s sleep enough? Is mental/emotional health real…
 
Periodization in and of itself tends to be a confusing and hotly debated topic, heavy on opinions but light on evidence. But periodization for hypertrophy alone is an even greater unknown. Join Omar and Eric this week as they explore this nebulous topic by discussing the scant, and not perfectly applicable research on the topic, periodization theor…
 
Some programs claim to have been written for beginning lifters. Others for intermediates, etc. How do you when you’re past the beginner stage, and how much does it really matter? We asked Greg Nuckols to break it down for us. Here are some of our thoughts befgre we talked to Gret: Do you stop being a beginner when you stop having PRs every week? Or…
 
At last, the long-standing feud between Iron CULTure, free speech and Danny Lennon of Sigma Nutrition comes to a close. The co-owners, Eric and Omar, interview the very friendly (there is not even a remote possibility that he is a serial killer) Danny Lennon on chrononutrition, the intersection of circadian rhythms and nutrition. Learn about your m…
 
Does women’s training really need an entirely different approach or just a couple tweaks? We asked Greg Nuckols, someone who recently wrote an article on this topic, to break it down for us. Here are some of our thoughts: Do women actually have great stamina for reps than men? Can women actually lift heavier on a percentage of max basis more freque…
 
Bryce Lewis, elite powerlifter and founder of The Strength Athlete is back on Iron Culture fresh off his 2019 USAPL Raw Nationals 105kg Open win. Now a 3-time national champion, his 902.5kg total is an unofficial world record and ranks him #1 in the world for tested raw 105kg lifters. His eyes are on IPF Classic Worlds 2020 to secure a 2nd World ti…
 
New Year. New avalanche of fitness and nutrition-related studies to confuse the resolutionistas (and the rest of us). How are we supposed to decide which ones to believe? We asked Greg Nuckols, someone who spends a lot of time evaluating research, to break it down for us. Here are some of our thoughts: Are there some sources we should listen over o…
 
Four words to describe this podcast would be authentic, vulnerable and being real. Or something like that. We are joined by Jordan Syatt, a personal trainer who has grown an online presence by doing everything you shouldn't. You'll find almost no video or photo of him lifting, showing off abs or "exposing" other practitioners. Instead, he delivers …
 
It’s a new year, it’s a new decade, and it’s a year in review for Iron Culture. Join our hosts...or rather owners, as they reflect on the first year of Iron Culture and discuss their plans for 2020 in this tongue and cheek bonus episode. Bonus: Eric tries to expand the Culture’s demographics into Mukbang territory. Bonus Bonus: And apparently ASMR.…
 
In one of our previous duo episodes, Omar went on a deep dive with Eric into autoregulation, the topic of his Ph.D. In this episode, Omar sits down with Eric and asks him to rewind the academic clock even further, to his first foray into academia and research, his masters. In this episode, the hosts not only discuss the roots of how Eric’s career a…
 
The next regular episode will drop on Jan 8, but we thought we’d have some fun and throw in this holiday bonus episode. We both saw “The Rise of Skywalker” so we talked through our thoughts and opinions. We also used the Business Insider’s ranking to discuss our thoughts on all the Star Wars films. There are tons of spoilers, so beware if you haven…
 
We take a look back at all of this year’s happenings and episodes. We talk about our favorite episodes of the year, our favorite answers from experts, and the answers we got the MOST wrong. Thanks to everyone who listened and special thanks to all our experts! We kick off the show talking about outsourcing, and “feeding the beast” of content creati…
