Becoming Ronin Podcast – #5 – The Most Hilarious CPPS Trip, Do Smitty and OB Disagree on One Exercise, How Passion Evolves

In this episode, Smitty and OB tackle some listener questions. One question sparked the telling of the most memorable CPPS certification (CPPS), which Smitty calls, “The Infamous Torchi Experiment.” Smitty’s brush with death in the Austin Texas Airport and his harrowing journey home are written in the scrolls so all future generations will never forget.

Then the guys give their thoughts on the how to make gym friends and why that might be the most important component in your fitness journey. Smitty and OB weigh in on if leg extensions are a “good” exercise, if there’s a time and place for them, and things to consider if you do use them.

They finish the episode by talking about how passion evolves over your career and how your relationship with fitness changes for the better.
