Broderick Chavez and Lyle McDonald talk training natural vs enhanced podcast



TID Board Of Directors

I thought this was a super cool watch, the 2 hours went by fairly quick if you are into training talk. They discuss optimal training between enhanced and natural lifters. Great approaches, lots of side talk about old bodybuilders, powerlifters, a little on drugs, and some great shout outs from Lyle on DoggCrapp training and Dan Duchaine!

I love Lyle, but he can be a dickk, he was not a dick in this video.
