#97 – Fighting STRONG with Student of the Gun

We’ve rebranded as Barbell Logic Online Coaching. At the time this podcast was recorded our service was called Starting Strength Online Coaching, and there may be a reference to that brand in this podcast episode. But fear not, we are still the same team of expert coaches providing personalized and dedicated online coaching to our clients, but now as Barbell Logic Online Coaching.

Today father-and-son team Paul and Jarrad Markel join us from Student of the Gun, a TV show, podcast, and community providing content on intelligent gun ownership and safety, hunting, self-defense, and general shooting advice. As Scott says, Student of the Gun is “the thinking man’s gun show.”

Paul Markel has a long history in physical fitness as a former Marine, police officer, and (still) an avid outdoorsman. He only recently started strength training with the barbell, however, and has noticed improvement in not only his strength and health but also in his shooting and ability to work in the field. Jarrad also has a background in athletics as a competitive wrestler and martial artist, but started strength training just over a year ago. He has reached the 200/300/400/500 benchmark, and has a lot of room to grow still.

As educators in the firearms industry, Paul and Jarrad know the value of approaching things with a logical, systematic mindset. They also recognize how hardship can shape your mind and hone your will, making you a better leader on the field. It’s no surprise that barbell training came naturally and is now an integral part of their approach to fighting and gunmanship.


This is Barbell Logic, where we believe that health and fitness should be approached with simplicity, logic and reason.

We focus on strength, health & longevity. Our goal is to present strength & fitness in a systematic logical progression. This channel aims to be a breath of fresh air in the fitness industry. Our teaching methods and programming for strength are simple, hard and effective.

We will cover topics under the umbrellas of barbell training, conditioning and nutrition. We’ll show you that barbell training is for everybody.


Join us for a lifetime of success under the bar. This is the foundation of our journey together.
