Today's podcast kicks off our 6 part interview with 5 time IPF Open World Champion Dave Ricks. Dave is one of those non flashy guys who really is a role model as a lifter and as a person. It was a pleasure speaking with him and I think you will enjoy his insight as a lifter and as a person.

This is the final podcast segment with legend of lifting Ed Coan. We talk about federation gaps and how comparing lifts is a negative thing for powerlifting. We talk about some of the controversy around the press command and whether it's a good thing to have it back in lifting. One of the final topics goes into discussion about York Hall of Fame and how many of the top US lifters from the 1980s and 1990s aren't not even in the hall, mostly since they didn't lift in the organization supported by York Barbell. Then we talk a bit about old USPF lifters who are not in the IPF hall of fame. It was a great series and I am looking forward to the next guest David Ricks.

Podcast #11 - Interview with World Champion Wade Hooper Part 3:
"Steve Mann, Jason Beck, and Wade Hooper discussed the state of powerlifting forums in part 3 of Mann's interview with Hooper. The three have little good to say about the forums in the powerlifting world. Mann seems to view his fledgling podcasting series as an alternative to what's wrong with the forums. He describes it as a way for people who are reputable, known, and doing something in the sport, to discuss the issues and controversies in powerlifting." - powerliftingwatch.com
