Episode 135 - We welcome back Joe Desena to the podcast in the first segment of the show. Joe answers some questions about Spartan Agoge. We learn all about what inspired it, what it is, and if it is, in fact, going to replace The Death Race.
Next up is several interviews from near the finish line of the Spartan Stadium Sprint near Dallas, Texas. Before and after running all around of AT&T Stadium in Arlington, we talked to a ton of folks.
They included top male finishers Brakken and McCauley Kraker, Isaiah Vidal, and Yancy Culp. In addition, we spoke with female finishers Kate Cramer, Jackie Rust, Erin Low and Megan Boyd. You will also hear from David Mick, who was interviewed to clear up a burpee miscount. Last, we talked to Dan LG, the course designer about how it all came together.

Episode 134 - Today's show features a sit down interview with Lee Haney.
After success in bodybuilding as a teenager, Lee went on to win Mr. Olympia 8 times in a row.
Since he stopped competing, he has been sought after as a coach and personal trainer. His clients have included Evander Holyfield, Steve Harvey, and many others. His certification program is taught by trainers worldwide.
Matt talks to Lee about what it has taken to stay on top of his game so long, and how he has stayed sane and successfully married along the way.
He also talks about why "functional fitness" is where it's at and why he thinks we should all "train to stimulate, not annihilate".
We also learn about his upcoming events which combine bodybuilding, strongman, and a little bit of OCR.

Episode 133 - On today's show, we talk endurance training. The first guest is Miguel Medina. Matt recently signed up for Yancy Camp, and chose Coach Miguel to make him a better obstacle racer. (and to help prvent further DNFs!) This is the first of what we plan on being several chats, leading up to World's Toughest Mudder in November.
Next up is Neil Murphy with Regiment Running. Neil got some early dish on the 2015 Spartan UltraBeast. Matt called him to find out what he learned from UB course director Norm Koch. We also dig in to see what Neil and his Florida crew of banditos have been doing the last few years, as they have created some great endurance training.
