Interrogating Rip

Our good friend, extraordinary lifting coach, and gifted writer Mark Rippetoe, of Wichita Falls, TX, has got his head on remarkably straight when it comes to strength training. He also has a down-to-earth no-nonsense style--and a great Texas accent--that’s a pleasure to listen to. Whether or not you were fortunate enough to meet him when he was at CrossFit Eastside in October, you oughtn’t miss Charles Staley’s recent interview of Rip, available here.

It’s about 50 minutes long, so download the interview, get yourself a cup of coffee, and settle in for a good listen. It’s time well spent.
