Travis Ortmayer is a professional strongman who has competed in eight world championships. In 2010, Travis broke his ankle, placing fifth at World's Strongest Man. The injury led to opioid addiction and tragically escalated to crystal meth.

In this 136th podcast episode of Dave Tate's Table Talk, Mike Tuchscherer takes a seat.

 

MIKE TUCHSCHERER

 

Mike began coaching in 2004 when he took over as Cadet-in-Charge of the USAFA Powerlifting club. After he graduated in 2007, he wrote about what he had learned in his first book, "The Reactive Training Manual." The book taught lifters how the concept of Rate of Perceived Effort (RPE) could be adapted to lifting. It went on to shape powerlifting and popularize the notion of autoregulated training. 

 

Mike was an early adopter of online coaching for powerlifting and helped to develop that industry. He coached and handled lifters worldwide for the next several years. In 2016, he began developing his "Emerging Strategies" framework—a planning style that systematically determines what a lifter responds best to. 

 

Over the 15+ years, Mike has been coaching. He has coached over 400 lifters. Sixteen of those lifters went on to earn a medal at the IPF Classic World Championships under his guidance. Fourteen lifters have earned World Records. 

 

The founder of Reactive Training Systems, Mike has taught more than 500 athletes and coaches how to make better training decisions. Whether through innovative concepts or ground-level coaching, free online systems or direct teaching, his lifting, or the coaching of others, Mike has inspired countless other powerlifters to individualize their training so that it works best for them.

#135 | C. Vogelpohl, T. Brock, D. Tate, K. Patterson, J. McCoy
03:15:45

In this 135th episode of Dave Tate's Table Talk Podcast, Dave Tate sits down with several of his old training partners from Westside, known as the OG AM crew from Demorest Road.

Chuck Vogelpohl, Kenny Patterson, Todd Brock, Joe McCoy, and Dave Tate shared close to a decade in the gym together. Combined, they share 60+ years' worth of Westside experience (at Westside) — dating back to when Westside existed out of Louie Simmons' garage to its current location on Industry Drive.

This will be unlike other episodes, as it’s been a long time since these guys have seen each other.

Expect some catching up, wild stories, and sh*t talking.

In this 133rd podcast episode of Dave Tate's Table Talk, Matt Wenning returns.

Matt recently squatted an impressive 520 pounds for 24 reps! Listen as Dave and Matt talk about this feat of strength, strength endurance, and longevity!

Matt Wenning is a three-time world champion powerlifter. He has directed over 6000 troops in strength, conditioning, and wellness for the U.S. Army, including Infantry and Ranger Divisions. He holds a Masters Degree in Biomechanics and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Ball State University.

Matt grew up in Indiana, raised by a hard-working, middle-class family. His mother was a nurse, and his father was a Marine and truck driver. When he was six years old, Matt was hit by a car going 50 mph, which took a toll on his physical development. After undergoing 12 months of full leg casts and 12 months in a boot, his legs were underdeveloped.

Four years later, Matt discovered lifting. It allowed him to see he was capable of anything, despite what he had gone through during his recovery from his injuries. Then, when Matt was 13, his father passed away due to cancer, a result of complications from agent orange. That's when he started lifting in competitions.

In the beginning, lifting was just a stepping stone to the goal of football. But it became a much larger pathway in his life. Lifting inspired Matt to attain higher education and become a strength coach. He excelled with a 3.9 GPA.

He has been an adviser for the NFL, an international speaker for the NSCA, and a contractor for border patrol, airborne divisions, and the pentagon.

Matt will be presenting at the 2022 elitefts SWIS Symposium. Register today and take advantage of 45% off the ticket price (sale ends August 19th, and registration prices will only rise the closer we get to the event)

#121 Matt Wenning on the Wenning Warm-up, Conjugate, and Turds?
02:53:30

Register SUPER early for the elitefts SWIS Symposium 2022 (registration prices will only raise the closer we get to the event): Click Here! 

 

In this 121st podcast episode of Dave Tate's Table Talk, Matt Wenning takes a seat.

 

In this episode, Dave and Matt will be discussing the following topics:

 

  • How Westside Barbell was different based on their experiences and timeframes
  • Matt's warm-up protocol
  • How Matt incorporates block training into conjugate
  • The turd story, plus gaining and losing weight
  • Views on the industry and the future of powerlifting
  • PEDs
  • And more!

 

Matt Wenning is a three-time world champion powerlifter. He has directed over 6000 troops in strength, conditioning, and wellness for the U.S. Army, including Infantry and Ranger Divisions. He holds a Masters Degree in Biomechanics and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Ball State University.

 

Matt grew up in Indiana, raised by a hard-working, middle-class family. His mother was a nurse, and his father was a Marine and truck driver. When he was six years old, Matt was hit by a car going 50 mph, which took a toll on his physical development. After undergoing 12 months of full leg casts and 12 months in a boot, his legs were underdeveloped.

 

Four years later, Matt discovered lifting. It allowed him to see he was capable of anything, despite what he had gone through during recovery from his injuries. Then, when Matt was 13, his father passed away due to cancer; a result of complications from agent orange. That's when he started lifting in competitions.

 

In the beginning, lifting was just a stepping stone to the goal of football. But it became a much larger pathway in his life. Lifting inspired Matt to attain higher education and become a strength coach. He excelled with a 3.9 GPA.

 

He has been an adviser for the NFL, an international speaker for the NSCA, and a contractor for border patrol, airborne divisions, and the pentagon.

#119 8x WPC World Champion: Doug Heath
02:23:15

In this 119th podcast episode of Dave Tate's Table Talk, Doug Heath and Adam Zevchik take a seat.

In this episode, topics include:

- What benefited Doug working as a shift worker (working nights and
regarding recovery)?
- Advice for someone who wants to double their current squat at roughly
the same bodyweight.
- Increasing strength while maintaining a low bodyweight.
- How powerlifting has changed (comparing the 80s and 90s to present
day).
- Mental prep for big lifts.
- What it was like training Buster Douglas when prepping for Mike Tyson.
- And more!

In September of 1976, Doug Heath met Louie Simmons at The Ohio State University. In Louie's mind, Doug was "strong as hell, but really eccentric, to say the least." In Doug's mind, Louie was the biggest guy he'd ever seen as a 20-year-old (traps to ears) and was enamored to be invited to train with Louie in his basement (before Westside Barbell existed) based on strength—deadlifting nearly 365, weighing 117 pounds.

 

Two months later, Doug competed in his first meet. Fast forward to 1984, he won Senior Nationals with a 1306.2 total, weighing 132. 

 

Adam Zevchik, the newest elitefts athlete, trained under Doug for roughly seven years. Through Doug, Adam feels his powerlifting career took off after he learned the historical makeup of the sport and harnessed Doug's mindset. 

 

Adam was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. He graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in sustainable plant systems with a specialization in turf grass science and a minor in business. He's the superintendent at The Golf Club at Little Turtle and manages the golf course and off-site landscape operations. 

 

As a multi-ply powerlifter of twelve years, he has one AWPC and three WPC world titles. He holds the junior squat record in the WPC at 148. He's ranked in the top-30 all-time at 148 and 165. 

 

Adam's most recent competition was APF Nationals (June 4th).
