The Breaking Muscle Podcast


Dec 7, 2017

On the latest edition of Fight Strength NSFW we switched things up a bit from our usual format of having on a guest. Instead, co-host Phil Daru and I took our weekly “Ask Daru” segment to the next level. Listeners of the show have sent Daru a whole pile of questions lately, and we felt the need to dedicate an entire episode to deliver answers for these aficionados of fitness.

Daru recently returned from a two-week stay in Russia, where he conducted exclusive seminars for the talented fighters at the ACB Berkut gym in Grozny. Before getting to our listener’s questions, I chatted with the strength and conditioning expert on his visit to the former Soviet Union, and some of his personal methods that he imparted on the athletes and trainers he got to work with.

The questions asked in this all “Ask Daru” episode of the show ran the gamut of training levels. The topics included programming hypertrophy for various weight classes, cardio routines that can burn fat while retaining muscle, conditioning techniques for Muay Thai fighters, methods to improve punching power and speed, and more.
