In all seriousness though, we’re here to help you be your best and avoid painful lessons you’re better off not experiencing.


With Chris Young & Nick Ritchey

Episode List

 Excellent! No hype. No commercials…

These guys know their stuff. I’ve learned more from them in 6 mos than I have in years. There are so many myths and fallacies out there, but Chris and Nick debunk it all! Thanks, and keep up the good work!

 Well rounded and full of info

Excellent and honest information.

While currently seeking my masters in Physical Therapy I read, watch and listen to a lot of great strength coaches from Dan John, Lowery, Bell, Simmons, Robertson, Wendler, Shugart, Boyle, Rooney… and this is my favorite in terms of information and focus on real strength while keeping things realistic and Nick’s great outlook on mental health alone is worth every minute. What I wouldn’t give to lift at Darkside…

Keep up the terrific work gentlemen!

 Great show on Strength Training/Powerlifting! 

Love the show you guys! Great topics and very detailed! Could you have a show of the topic of “periodization, tapering for a competition, and the psychology behind competing in strength sports”? I love all the history and stories of old time lifters from the 40s/50s/60s. Keep it up, I plan to buy both the Get Mighty Now book and Fat Loss book A.S.A.P.!!!

 A no gimmick show

In the fitness world you hear allot of fluff and just plain wrong info but these guys seem to know stuff. If you want a show with lots of history and info about lifting and proper technique then look no further. Keep up the good work guys.

 Quality information, easily digested! 

This podcast is a must for anyone interested in having better looking, more durable, healthier bodies. The hosts do an excellent job of presenting balanced information while making it easily understandable to put into practice. Even though they are more inclined to the powerlifting side of training, they humbly recognise that a person’s choice of training will depend largely on that person’s goal and what they’re trying to achieve. They dispel many common misconceptions about the industry and training, while presenting the value of their style of training.

The podcasts are fairly freeform and the hosts may go on slight tangents (which results in a longer than usual episode duration), however it usually helps flesh out the point they’re trying to make and is always interesting to listen to.

Highly recommended along with the Iron Radio podcast!

 With their help and your own dedication you can gain (or lose!) just as much as I have if not more.

I’ve been listening to Mighty Cast and reading the blogs from Get Mighty Now for this past year, in that year I have lost much of my unnecessary fat, gone from Novice to Intermediate in terms of strength (160lbs Press, 230lbs Bench, 320lbs Squat, and the most recent mark 400lbs Deadlift), and has provided for me a knowledge base that can help keep me healthy, fit, and vital for years to come. The wide array of information discussed by the hosts is well said, knowledgeable, and at times rather humorous.

Update: Michael has since lost 66 pounds on his own.
