#96 - Dr. Jordan Shallow On Powerlifting, Celebrity Encounters & Social Media In Strength Sports

Dr Jordan Shallow is a graduate of the 135th class of Palmer College of Chiropractic West, but his passion for human movement goes far beyond the classroom. With a critical mind and a decade of training/strength and conditioning under his belt he brings an experience level far beyond his years.

Right into the thick of it from the start as the boys ask Jordan about what brings him over to Australia. They start to talk about Jordan’s professional background, shed some light on chiropracting and about how he got into powerlifting. After that, they talk about the Arnold Classic and about how Jordan has built his brand.

Things get a bit more in-depth business wise as Jordan talks about how he differentiates his brand from others, but things take a different turn when they start talking about meeting the celebrities of the strength and fitness world. Later into the convo and they talk about nutrition, movies, and even share some stories of projectile vomiting.

There’s a good balance of humor and learning in this podcast, and you guys are sure to love it. Tune in, enjoy and take away what you will from another great episode!
