This week on iTunes, STT interviews the brains behind the hottest pieces of new strength training equipment. Tyler Hobson’s passion for strength training began over 30 years ago. He competed as a powerlifter through 2005 when the demands of his growing business and travel schedule became too demanding. It was strength training that he says “changed my life.” Hobson worked in a manufacturing business that was heavily involved in tool and die creation; this gave him access to many wonderful mechanical tools that he could use to create machines and devices that would give him an edge in his lifting competitions. It was during this time that Hobson formed his company, Pendulum, and began sharing some of these tools with other strength trainers.
