Mike The Machine Bruce-Triumph-#340-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Strongman, Strongman Performer, Steel Bender, Motivational Speaker and Owner of The Machine Shop Gym Mike The Machine Bruce to the Broadcast. Eric and Mike launch right into Mikes serious lower back injury and how this injury affected him both mentally and physically. Picture yourself being always able to be physical and mentally strong then in a split second it all comes to a screeching halt. Mike tells Eric he was performing at a charity event about a year ago from this actual podcast when he was twisting a horseshoe that just wouldn’t bend. Mike didn’t want to fail at this feet of strength so applied more pressure to bend the horseshoe when he heard and felt a pop in his lower back. Mike could not get up on his own but with the help of some friends finished the show. Mike went to his friend and Chiropractor to get looked at and have an MRI done. Mike got a call from his chiropractor who was in tears on the phone telling him that the injury was very bad. It was so bad that the surgeons wanted to operate on his back right away. Mike opted out and decided to continue with chiropractic care. Eric and Mike talk about how he was bed ridden and could not walk for three weeks. Mike also had to deal with his heavily muscled body wasting away which led him to two mental breakdowns. Mike always being the optimist found his silver lining through support from friends and family giving him the strength to continue on and regain his health. Mike is now back to full speed gaining back his machine muscle and looking at a bright future. Mike proves that strength of mind and strength of heart are one! The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects You’re Brain To You’re Brawn. Enjoy!
