Coach Joe aka the "Jock" has spent the last few years competing as both a competitive CrossFitter and Olympic Weightlifter. Using his experience as both an athlete and coach, he brings his unique personality and wisdom of all things Weightlifting to the podcast.
The "Doc and Jock" podcast touches on everything from training tips, to different Weightlifting philosophies practiced around the world, to nutrition, to interviews with some of the most influential people in the CrossFit and Weightlifting industry.
