Here are some of the discussion points from the conversation.

  • How Tobi got into strength training as a teenager and worked up to 750lbs in his 20s!
  • Was Tobi strong coming out of the gate or did he get pinned with 100lbs on the bench press when he first started?
  • The pros and cons of the conventional deadlift and sumo deadlift.
  • Why lower body training should be prioritized for an overall strong physique instead of fixating on upper body exercises.
  • The benefits of high-frequency training and Tobi’s results with his own version of a very well known HFT program.
  • Are there training benefits of wearing masks while training?
  • Mike’s feedback on wearing a mask while training and how it impacted his recent deadlift PR.
  • The training Tobi has been focused on during the pandemic and not having access to weights.
