For the past year or so, I’ve gotten tweets and emails from AoM readers telling me to check out a book called The Encyclopedia of Underground Strength and Conditioning. I finally got around to it, and after giving it a read, I knew I had to get its author on the podcast. Zach Even-Esh is a strength and conditioning coach and creator of the Underground Strength program. It emphasizes functional strength and conditioning, marrying techniques used by strongmen since the early 1900s with modern practices. Tire flipping, sledgehammers, deadlifting rocks (and barbells) are just some of the exercises you’ll find in the Underground Strength program. Zach and I discuss the origins of Underground Strength and what men can start doing today to become stronger.
