Episode 07: “Training Effects on Mental Health & Persevering through Darkness” feat. Chad Aichs

In this episode I talk to Chad Aichs, one of the greatest Powerlifters of all time. Chad has written openly about his struggles with insomnia and mental health; and how training has played a role in that aspect of his life. It was a tough conversation, as it brought to mind a lot of my own extremely similar struggles from the past; but I left the conversation encouraged and refreshed. If you (or someone you know), struggles with mental illness and trains, I highly recommend giving this episode a listen..

  1. Hi Joe,

    Can you post the link to the article which you referred to as Chad’s “first article” regarding this topic? This episode was great. I think it will be very helpful for me once I figure out what it means for my particular situation. Thanks.
