Ep. 48: Catching up with Andy Askow

Andy Askow was our first interview on Clinically Pressed and it has been all downhill from there.  We have had the fortune to get to know Andy and follow him career through powerlifting and academics.  Now with Andy back up north to hang out for the weekend we wanted to sit down and have a conversation to see where he is at, where he is going and what the future has in store.

Andy has made a lot of transitions both in the sport of lifting heavy weights as well as having new goals in school and in research.  Big things happening and you can catch up on it all in this conversation we had with Andy Askow.
