Learn More About Karl
Karl has been lifting for most of his life but got serious about it when his first son was born. Carrying the boy led to painful back spasms. Deadlifting cured the pain, and he discovered how important strength is to one’s quality of life.
He has long been interested in the classics and spent twenty years teaching philosophy in universities. Karl now also works as a seminar host at Online Great Books and co-hosts the Online Great Books Podcast and the Music and Ideas Podcast.
His life plan could be summarized as 1) read books, 2) lift weights, 3) talk about books, 4) coach people to lift weights, and 5) profit. So far, so good!
