Eric Fiorillo Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Mark Wechter to the broadcast.

Mark Wechter is a stone lifter, powerlifter, highland games strength athlete and a stone lifter who lifted and carried the famous 418 pound Husafell Stone for 50 meters around the sheep pen in Iceland.

Eric and Mark talk about their heroes and what got us started in weightlifting.

We also talk briefly about shoulder injuries and rotater cuff problems and why they will slow your stone lifting down. But the whole premise of training when you train so hard your going to hurt from head to toe many days. If your not hurting most likely your not training hard enough.

Eric and Mark talk about the old school World Strongest Man athlete such as Kaz, OD Wilson and Don Reinhoudt. Could they compete against today’s top contenders?

Eric and Mark talk about his favorite movements such as the deadlift, quarter squats and front squats.

We also talk about his favorite strongman movements and what he does to prepare for competition.

Eric and Mark talk about his whole Iceland experience.

Mark talks about the training he did to get ready for the stone, buying the plane tickets for Iceland and driving around to find Husafell. Once he recognized the church he knew he had arrived there.

I myself have lived this wonderful journey and was so happy to relive it again.

As Mark explains as he was walking up on the Husafell Stone his heart felt like it was going to jump out of his chest.

This podcast is so exciting in so many ways.

Eric and Mark both share an experience that few people have ever known. It’s all about the love of strength, will and the discipline to get it done.This is truly what the art of strength is all about.
