I just listened to the episode about menopause and fitness with Dr. Abbie Smith-Ryan. I have weight trained for over 30 years, but I am realizing I definitely need to up my game with protein and also supplementation now that Im post menopausal. The entire episode was incredibly helpful and...Read full review »

Helpful and provides insights that’s practical. However, I wish there were more practical tips on analyzing bloodwork history (episode on ‘Bloodwork What your doctor isn't telling you’).Read full review »

Really enjoy this podcast and always learn something fascinating! Loved the episode on Evidence-Based Strategies to Reduce Risk of Dementia and Alzheimers with Dr. Tommy Wood! Amazing take aways and tips on how we can keep our brain healthy for a lifetime. Thank you!

Guys, a little organization and clarity in the message would go a long way. I’ve listened to numerous episodes only to get 30 mins in and realize I haven’t heard anything of actual substance. Just a bunch of half-thoughts and interjections and giggling. Perhaps consider what you’re trying to get...Read full review »

But they are just selling their expensive coaching and give almost no actionable advice. The answer to every question is “it depends, I have to look at your bloodwork and lifestyle.”

I’ve been listening to barbell shrugged for a couple of years now but lately I have been loving the podcast even more since Dan Garner has come on! So enjoying his wealth of knowledge and view points on how health, performance and body composition come together in a more holistic way. Also really...Read full review »

I have been listening to the show for a while now. One the hosts get to the content it’s good content. However it’s hard to listen to when there is 30 to 40 minutes of them talking about themselves and pushing there products. It’s a 40 minute commercial. Please give the listeners more content.
Ronnie dewit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/21
I used to really enjoy listening to this podcast. Wouldn’t miss an episode. Really started to sour on the show after the ridiculous rant about the 80/20 rule. How out of touch are you with the normal population? Do you realize that for most people that would be a 100% improvement in their food...Read full review »
dawgnation001 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/21
I’m so confused. This used to be a great podcast. But now there’s like a 7 min commercial at the beginning and then once it finally starts, Doug never gets to talk! Let Doug talk! Lol and stop just rambling with long personal stories that never “land.” I’m a health and fitness professional and...Read full review »

I’m 21, never met any of the guys on this podcast. But been listening since I was about 15 when it was the OG’s including Chris doing it. Interviewing Rich Froning and stuff. Well not until Diesel dad episode 20 did I really feel something. Made me cry. I’ve never left a review on a podcast...Read full review »

Have listened to these guys for years and they have recently shifted focus to how busy dads can incorporate fitness into their lifestyle without sacrificing everything else. It’s full of insight, motivation and real world stories, check it out!!
domoobrien via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/03/21
This podcast is phenomenal, the amount of dialogue, excellent guests and content has taught me so much I thought I already knew so much about. Daily listener, this is a must for any avid gym goer or someone anyone interested in the industry; A must listen.
JGrizzle29 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/21
As a fat guy, I listen to these guys for motivation. Then, last week, they kind of started putting down fat people. Not too motivating.
JimmyGymGym via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/21
Great content, horrendous audio. Please invest in the proper equipment / sound editing to address this issue! You have such a gem of a podcast, don’t lose listeners because of audio issues.

Anders - keep yelling. It’s my favorite part hahaha. Your laugh is contagious!! Keep up the great work. Loving the topics
demerson1990 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/20
Listen to this show all the time for the motivation and educational content... but do you guys even listen to the final product before releasing it for the public? What is up with the audio quality? Echoing, voices getting cut out— I get they’re on zoom/Skype now but is there any QA at all? The...Read full review »

I tend to agree with those that are nostalgic for the old format. This podcast channel is a shell of what it use to be. I would subscribe if not for having to constantly filter through the episodes to find the ones with hosts I like on a topic I am interested in. Thanks for your work in the past.
HimAlpaca via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/20
This used to be my favorite podcast. Great quality, top content, amazing hosts...... I stopped listening for no fault of the podcast and just came back after a year or so. It’s like pulling teeth trying to listen to this brofest/meathead bar chat now. The constant talking over each other,...Read full review »

You all tap dance around the whole issue of CF and Glassman. You can’t just keep your head focus on fitness while the world is in turmoil. Expected more, but this is the new BS. SMH
BornUltimate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/20
Anders-stop yelling. Travis-speak up. Doug-slow down. Everything else is great!
Charmanella78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/20
Old hosts used to interview a broad range of people and talk about everything, now it’s very hard to stay focused in because the new hosts go on too many side tangents and talk about 1 or 2 topics only centered around Olympic competitors.
Shoreman94 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/20
2 stars because it used to be great, still have lots of old (2 years ago) episodes that I will go back and listen. Now it is the worst.. in the last year these new guys started and are so CrossFit meathead bro’s I cant stand listening
jonhe2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/20
This was the title of newest episode with Ryan Fisher released. I won’t listen because I guarantee the whole episode is him talking over his guest bragging ABOUT HOW MANY FOLLOWERS HE HAS. He’s the worst. I miss Bledsoe.
nurseNPLY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/19
Used to be great. Now, I find episodes that are just recordings of interviews on other podcasts I’ve already heard. The owners have surely lost their way.
RobMopar73 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/19
I love the classics barbell shrugged show and I must admit I’m a bit disappointed recently when I listen to real chalk. The first few episodes were great, intros and what not, now every show is Ryan always talking about Ryan. He has had some amazing guests and I get excited when I saw Marcus this...Read full review »
Sjwill34 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/19
Love the show And, of course, it is hit or miss depending on what your interests are. However, often they spend so much time going over the biography of the guests that you never get to the subject matter you tuned in to learn about.The recent podcast with Wendler is a prime example of this. The...Read full review »

First time listener here and I won’t be back. The conversation was wandering, and the hosting/interviewing skills are terrible.

Hands down, this is the best and most complete fitness podcast around. Go listen the good old days with Chris Moore
Chups56 via Apple Podcasts · Mexico · 06/12/19
Wonderful and insightful podcast on the reality of starting and running a personal training business. I’ve had my own PT business a little over a year and finding it challenging to find new clientele. Jill’s information was very helpful.
GPSfit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
Dont think about the next thing your gonna say while the interviewee is talking, it really halts the flow of the conversation. I think you're trying to force the conversation in an unnatural way.Read full review »

I’ve been listening to the Collective for a while and have enjoyed the shows. But my enjoyment has grown so much more since Ashley joined the crew and started interviewing. Her style of listening and asking questions is excellent and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to. Keep up the great work.

Guys y'all bring an expert on and ask them questions only to talk over them. Oh wait, I forgot the hosts know more than everyone else.Read full review »

I really enjoyed this podcast when it was Barbell Shrugged. Ever since the change it has gone down in quality. Half the time the hosts and guests are just rambling on bragging about their accomplishments with no real content. I am a long time listener that had to just finally hit the...Read full review »

This is my first review of any podcast and it took me awhile to get the balls to put this in writing. I went onto the comments section to see if anyone else felt the same way and I noticed a few did so I figure why not? Take the following as a data point. You get enough of these points and you...Read full review »

I have been listening to BS for YEARS and I really enjoy the Shrugged Collective. I do miss Mike & Doug, but I've gotten used to Anders and "all the things." I must ask that you please stop recording with Jen Wiederstrom because I can barely get through the podcasts she is on. I...Read full review »

Always love the guests they bring on and topics they cover, but Anders Varner could pipe down and let the guests speak. Love Douglas Larson, wish he spoke up more!!

theepumpgod via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/19
Pros: Great content and guests Cons: Anders saying “gangster” and ad reads way too long. Plus he talks mainly about him vs asking the guest questions. Listen to good podcasters and learn how to get more out of your guests. Going long is worthless if you aren't getting info from the guests.Read full review »

This show used to be great with lots of knowledge, information and science with guys having fun. I used to listen to every show.

Barbell Shrugged was one of the first podcasts I started listening too. Thought it was really good when Bledsoe was leading it. Since Andrea has taken over though I think it’s gone downhill, he interrupts the guests so much, and for me, that spoils it. I want to listen to HINSHAW, not VARNERS....Read full review »
Illestfuture via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/28/19
Love all these guys! They always keep it real, they interview awesome people, and they’re super humble. I look forward to all their episodes, and I love the Real Chalk ones with Ryan Fisch. Y’all are amazing, keep it up!
jackythompson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/19
The last 5 episodes of shrugged have been really sub par. It’s been a lot of elitism and self serving junk from Anders that is making me unsubscribe. He doesn’t contribute to conversations and rarely keeps guests on track. It doesn’t sound like he knows what they’re talking about when he...Read full review »

Barbell Shrugged was 5 stars, Barbell Collective is just about 3 Stars. Too much poor, unrelated, woo-woo content since the expansion. Seems just a money grab now! Way way too many adverts, done in a way to lure people in, the worst way, almost like a scam. Constain request for 5 star reviews,...Read full review »

Awesome guests and information. Sometimes I like to play a game where I drink every time Anders says “thing.” It makes for a spicy podcast.
