No Holds Barred: John Perretti Interviews Karl List, Part Two, and More Filth from Boxing
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host and producer Eddie Goldman presents the second in a series of interviews by our colleague and senior correspondent John Perretti with the noted fitness expert and personal trainer Karl List.
Karl List is a fitness expert with over 20 years of experience as a personal trainer, and was a natural (drug-free) bodybuilding champion. He and his wife and business partner, Jodi Friedman List, are the co-owners of List Integrated Systematic Training. Their clients are trained at the world-famous Gold's Gym in Venice, California, where Karl is the only trainer who maintains a client base of personal trainers.
In that interview, John Perretti and Karl List discuss the prevalence of injuries from the use of barbells and bench pressing, what is functional strength for athletes, why training methods are poor selections for athletes, why free body exercises are important, why heavyweight boxers like the Klitschko brothers have bad legs, why the back squat is the king of exercises, how to do it properly, and more.
Before that interview, we open with a commentary on some of the latest filth in the past week from boxing. We discuss the very predictable results from the January 23 Madison Square Garden card shown on HBO, the attempt to reinstate Antonio Margarito after his license was revoked for attempting to load his gloves last year in a fight with Shane Mosley, whether boxing would have been better off if promoter Bob Arum had been banned from boxing after admitting that he had paid bribes in the IBF scandal, and more.
The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", by Ian Carpenter.
