Odd Haugen-The Measure of a Man-#241-Eric and Odd discuss his origins of weightlifting. As a young boy there wasn’t much he saw that he didn’t want to lift. As a young boy in wood shop class he was building benches while the other boys were building boats. In fact Odd still has that bench. Odd and I go through his lifelong training journal. He leans now towards the strongman movements out of all the strength sports he’s ever competed in and there have been many. Now that he has decided this will be his last professional strongman contest coming up in August he will concentrate on MAS Wrestling and Grip Sports Contests. We talk about Odd’s Strongman peers he looks up to. We talk about the mental aspects of training and why its always good to have something to shoot for. We talk about why people age and how their self talk has crippled them and aged them considerably. Odd’s advice for anti aging is to keep moving, stop sitting so much and think youth. This podcast has lots of history from a strongman who has seen it all up to this point. Odd gives us a glimpse into a very strong life that seems to keep growing.
