    Bret, I discovered this podcast 2 years after you produced it!! It’s great material!! I wish I could download it but it looks like you have had to remove it from the download sites.

    In any case, your discussion of the body part split versus whole body training was really refreshing. It’s really nice to hear an educated fair-minded assessment of the pros and cons, without anything being “sold” to me.
