Stephen Santangelo-Strength and Organics-#282-Strength Athlete and Organic Famer Stephen Santangelo joins Motivation and Muscle Host Eric Fiorillo on today’s show. Eric and Stephen talk about his early beginnings in track and field, bodybuilding and the desire to be a champion. Stephen talks about observing and being around bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, Franco Columbu. Stephen met and is a big fan of Vince Gironda and trained at his gym. He said Vince didn’t take any Sh*t from anyone and he would throw you out of his gym if he didn’t like what you were doing. Stephen admired Vince because he was a big believer in the value of raw milk and raw eggs for good health. Stephen took everything he learned from these men and built it to what he believed would be most beneficial to him. We talk about lifestyle choices and the ability to keep training well into your senior years. We also talk in present day terms where what you think about most you become. You might not be good in a certain lift but that doesn’t mean you won’t find a lift that you can excel in. Lifting is a sport with many highs and lows woven through it. You have to be steadfast in your beliefs that you will be a champion and nothing will get in your way. We talk about about our training education and how circumstances can change your outlook on how you train and what are the next steps you must take to forge new success. Self motivation is the main ingredient. It must be cultivated and you must rise to the occasion when suddenly faced with there’s no one there to help load your bar or bark encouragement to push through a lift or just a friendly face in the room. Build your mind and body through the principals we have laid out in this podcast and you will truly be a CHAMPION! The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn. Enjoy!
