Iron Culture

Eric Helms & Omar Isuf
SportsHealth & Fitness

Iron Culture was started by Eric Helms and Omar Isuf as a means of exploring the world of physical culture and attempting to distill a unified philosophy of lifting and to help listeners find greater meaning from the iron. The lifting community has become fractured over the last ~70 years and this Podcast will attempt to explore the fundamental threads that unite these different tribes. The Podcast focuses on dispensing practical, useful information to the listener, bouncing from history, to philosophy, to contemporary lifting culture issues, to science. This can range from teaching the audience about lifting, programming, nutrition, supplements/PEDs and the history of lifting culture. The format includes casual conversations between the two hosts on a variety of topics, discussions with a panel of experts and interviews with authoritative figures in the lifting community.

  • This is the title of my review

    Spinoza wrote, “Emotion, which is suffering, ceases to be suffering as soon as we form a clear and precise picture of it.” However, Spinoza did not have the chance to listen to this podcast. If he did, he would understand that there is some suffering that cannot and should never be endured. more

  • Solid overall

    Generally solid content! Eric and various guests do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to dropping knowledge. There’s a ton of information across the catalogue, but I’d say listeners who are interested in the meat of the episodes can often skip the first 10-15 minutes, as well as many of Omar’s longer interjections, which tend to meander, eat up time, and ultimately contribute very little to the discussion topic. The hosts are clearly good friends, but listeners are more likely to find valu... more
