KC Mitchell aka That 1 Leg Monster is a US Army Airborne Infantry vet who was wounded in combat overseas. The IED blast left made him lose his leg.
In this very special episode, we sat down with KC and he shared his journey after the blast through recovery and to his introduction into fitness. He shares his fitness journey, his how and why for training, and his goals.
KC is outspoken about a lot of things and speaks very bluntly about them. In Part 1, he calls out a lot of people in the fitness and supplement industry by name and doesn't hold back when he shares his opinions of them.
By far our most controversial and engaging episode to date. KC is understandably an inspiration to many people and we hope that his story can inspire you and get you to think.
Ryface takes the helm in this funny and controversial interview with Emily Duncan (THE @Em_Dunc) and Matt Vincent (@ihviiimattvincent) while the Doughnuts and Deadlifts crew was at the Arnold in Columbus.
We are all a little tired and out of it while we discuss the different fitness cultures seen at Ze Arnold, their validity, FLAT EARTH!, and other things.
The question of the hour was clearly: What's the deal with bodybuilding? Can it really be considered a sport? Em Dunc handles these questions while Matt offers his perspective on things.
Sarah, who created and runs the Primal Bites blog (www.primalbitesblog.com) stops in to talk about the many forms of sustainability and sustainable eating. We talk the politics and ethics of food and eating and the best approaches to optimal nutrition. We also talk about Sarah's fitness journey as she ventures into strongman and powerlifting from CrossFit.
We play probably our best round of Two Truths and A Lie to date, and have an insane round of Would You Rather?

Brandon Collins, longtime friend of the Black Iron crew, and the one who has done much of the tattoo work on Krissy's body stops by before leaving the country on an open ended journey around the globe.
Brandon talks what it takes to give up everything to pursue a passion and a dream, the weirdest foods he's ever eaten, fetishes, and plays a game of "Would You Rather" with us.
As always we are funny and controversial and we hope you enjoy!
The boys of Black Iron took over the podcast studio to sit down and talk some nonsense and be funny. We delve into "What's the worst workout you've ever seen?" among other things. This is what we have to (get to) put up with on a daily basis. Good times!
Katie and Rori are two very strong women making waves in the USAPL. They stopped by Black Iron to host a powerlifting seminar and graciously took the time to podcast with us.
We take questions from Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter about training, recovery, maintenance, overcoming obstacles, getting drug tested, body image, and jumping into lake for Logan (see our other video for that!)
And of course we got a few "Would You Rather" questions because that's how we roll.

Kristin Pope and Monet Bland, two of the girls from Team Doughnuts and Deadlifts stopped by before competing in the USAW American Open and USAPL West Coast Championships to talk about competing, diet, gaining weight and cutting, body image even in a sport where looks are not a primary or secondary goal, life outside of the gym and share their infectious laughs with the world.
Desiree Morgan and Tony Montgomery Jr. from Team Doughnuts and Deadlifts stopped by during the American Open in Reno, NV (how convenient for us!) at the beginning of January. We talk about their new online coaching business (www.tmnutrition.net), training through injuries, getting back on the platform, and how nothing in life is owed to you.
Big Jess Anderson stops by and talks strip clubs, how to DM, "professional" powerlifters, eating big, and being the youngest person to ever squat more than 900lbs in competition.
Welcome to the Black Iron Iron Cast Podcast! In our first episode, we sit down with (some of) the coaching staff at Black Iron to talk about life at BIG, rap in NPR voices, the Black Iron Black Book of Training (which can be found at our Gumroad) and play a round of "Would You Rather".
Video versions of our podcasts will be available on our YouTube page: www.youtube.com/blackirongym
We open with our technical difficulties while Ryan tries to get our equipment to work, all while the camera was rolling. Then we discuss not having intro music (we really need to fix that!) and then we get rolling. Welcome to our world, world!
