This is another of those potentially boring articles based on reason, as opposed to passion. Beliefs concerning the superiority of one form of lifting over the other have been addressed by various authors. The idea that raw lifting is a return to the roots of the sport has been debunked, as historians of the sport and old time lifters have come forth with documented evidence about the use of many different devices that provided carry-over to the lifts. The thesis about the increased protection gear would offer to lifters was equally shown to be false.
In this article, we will address different situations in which lifting raw or equipped is a matter of health, more than choice.
In our sixth episode, we talk lifting and life with world record powerlifter and Youtuber, Ben Rice.

Are you logging countless hours on the same, boring piece of cardio equipment or putting in endless miles of joint-destroying, testosterone-ridding road work, while remaining in a perpetual state of physical flaccidity and reaching new depths of mental decay?
Instead of interminable days of long, slow cardio that makes you weaker, slower, and eats away at muscle, there is a better way.
