Should You Wear Lifting Shoes to Back Squat, How to Eat Clean With No Meal Prep, and Why Taking a Rest Day is a Requirement (Not a Suggestion) with Danny Burde on the Iron Crew Podcast


Happy One Year Anniversary to the Iron Crew Podcast!  Danny rides solo in the final episode of the year as he reflects on where the podcast started and where it is headed.  He also shares what to expect in the future, MORE WEEKLY EPISODES!  The “Week That Was” will be a separate episode released on Fridays, guest interviews still dropping every Wednesday, a new weekly “Takeover Tuesday” episode featuring Casey Colopy, and a new weekly “Sundays with Shannon” featuring Dr. Shannon Nash.  You won’t want to miss the details on the new weekly format for the Iron Crew Podcast!

Danny reflects on the evolution of the podcast, clearly defines the Iron Crew Athletics mission statement, and divulges the inspiration behind the guest interviews and topics of discussion.  He also gives his insight on the importance of independence, solitude, and alone time in romantic relationships.  Danny then tackles the question of whether or not you should be wearing weightlifting shoes for back squats.  Finally, a listener question is answered:  How do you eat healthy on the go when you didn’t meal prep?
