Gareth Denyer-Dominance Over Fear-#349

Gareth Denyer-Dominance Over Fear-#349-Eric Fiorillo  Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Trainer, Boxer, Strength Coach and The owner of the HCP Gym in Texas Gareth Denyer to the Broadcast. Eric and Gareth start right out of the box with how today’s society is fear based. As Gareth stated that we worry or fear something that hasn’t  happened and will never happen. If you let it, fear will always have its grip around you suffocating any chance to dominate a given situation and snuffing out any chance of success. Eric and Gareth talk about learning to identify your fears. We feel most people feels it makes them look weak. We feel its just the opposite. Strength comes out in many ways and one is to have the guts where you feel you fall short and dominate and conquer it once and for all. We also touch upon the idea of this 24/7 information world and the vast majority of it is very limited of any positive essence. This is why people have fears and anxiety when they are constantly bombarded with bad news or the idea that taking risks are to dangerous. The age old question is what if I fail? I say fail over and over again! Struggle breads success! Learn to become dominate, a strong thinker and a creator. Take that dominance and shove it right through the floor. Change those fear based thought habits and turn them into high octane thoughts comprised of positive affirmations administered with a jaw breaking punch. It’s truly up to you to what you want to become. Eric and Gareth will give you the positive words and the action steps to accomplish Dominance over Fear!

Shawn Mozen-Self Victory-#327

Shawn Mozen-Self Victory-#327-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Agatsu President, The foremost Kettlebell  authority in Canada, Martial Artist and Functional Fitness Instructor Shawn Mozen to the Broadcast. Eric and Shawn talk about what is the meaning of Agatsu. Shawn gives us the true definition as Beginners Mind. Shawn believes no matter how much you think you know you should always go into any new endeavor with a beginners mind. Shawn believes before you can master your opponent you must master yourself mentally then let that thought seep into your physical side of training. Eric tells Shawn that The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show was his dream constructed with the idea of asking questions  that Eric as a young 10 year old boy would want to ask Arnold Schwarzenegger , Ed Coan or Bill Kazmaier. This is the whole premise of Motivation and Muscle. We talk about theory as opposed to actually doing the sport. This is a common problem Shawn sees in the fitness industry and also in social media.  We get into the whole idea of where are you getting your information from and how do your sort out the relevant stuff from the BS. The big thing Eric has heard from his new listening family is after a hard day at work they like listening to something that talks to them. This is very important to everyone’s well being and building winning attitudes. Eric and Shawn deliver a very big inspiring show with lots of high octane proven beliefs for everyone who wants to squeeze a little more out of their life.

Eric describes to Erin and the audience how he rows with a loaded Olympic Bar and Thick Handed Dumbbells for great gains. This was a very popular topic Coach Rob Regish and I covered on Motivation and Muscle a few weeks ago. Some of our listeners felt the Podcast was to short so I expanded on it more with Erin. The podcast can be listened to at We discuss the proper form to use when rowing with an Olympic Bar or Thick Handled Dumbbell. We talk about the different variations of rowing I do to achieve not only the thickest back I can build but the strongest muscular biceps I can muster. Did you know the bent row can build a much meatier bicep then the actual standing barbell curl? Stone Lifter great Dr. William Crawford can attest to that. If you like stones insert the bent row into you’re program. We talk about partials with both the Olympic Bar and The thick handled Dumbbells. We cover how many sets and reps would work when training the bent row. I also talk about the other exercise I feel that works so well with the bent row for added strength and muscular mass. I will tell you what it is in another Train and Gain in the future. Erin comes through with another award winning  post workout recovery smoothie. She calls it the  Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie and gives a detailed. recipe. We all know with Thanksgiving And Christmas getting closer we see Chestnuts everywhere.

We take you through the various steps and modalities we have both used or know athletes that have tried things of their own which got them up and training for their goals ahead. When injuries occur it is so vital to the athlete to seek the proper help and figure out the steps quickly to make to be able to get in top form as humanly possible.

The main thing you need to remember is you can come back better then ever and we will give you the tools to do just that. We give our own examples of our own injuries and the steps we took to get back and be able to take that dream of ours and see it through. Eric and Dr. Wong talked about every mans nightmare.

Dori Peterson-The Rebel Food Nurse-#304

Dori Peterson-Rebel Food Nurse-#304-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes The Rebel Food Nurse, Registered Nurse and Nutritional Coach Dori Peterson To the Broadcast. Eric and Dori talk about the last four years of her health journey. Dori who  is a registered nurse has had first hand experience with the sick and the terminally ill and came to the realization that its not drugs which cure the sickness in people its the proper supplementation and giving them the foods that their diet lacks to get them well again. Dori’s passion for health goes much deeper then just clean eating. She tells us how she lost forty pounds and has three young boys. She decided at that point that she was going to lead by her own example so her boys would pick up good eating habits which will last for a lifetime. We talk about the mind and how old habits die hard. The inner being must be changed in dramatic fashion and met with a primal resolve to run over the old stinking thinking and keep reminding yourself that the new you will win out. This takes time and practicing large amounts of repetition to slay the dragon inside. Dori talks about how she works with people who need to change mentally but the real crux of the problem is do they really want to? Dori gives examples of how some people just want to stay as they are never really changing just adding another page to their script. We also address the victim mentality that is in overdrive in America right now. We talk about childhood obesity and how the biggest killer of children right now is cancer. The question we must ask all of us is what are you eating and does it help or hurt you through this wonderful thing we call life?

Bill Hinbern-Bullet Proof Midsection-#300

Bill Hinbern-Bullet Proof Midsection-#300-This is Our 300th Podcast. Who Better To Celebrate This With is a Man Who Knows a Thing or To about strength. Please welcome Bill Hinbern. Eric Fiorillo Host of The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Bill Hinbern, strength historian, dedicated to over 45 years teaching the value of strength, and owner of the famous super strength web site to the podcast show. Eric and Bill talk about how to strengthen the mid section of the body. This is a subject constantly talked about and this podcast will shine a bright light on it. Why is the mid section so important. It’s the center of the body. It’s also where our digestion takes place.  We talk about all the people with weak lower backs and how most of the problems can be traced to a very weak midsection. We talk about the upper and lower abdominals , the obliques and the muscles along the rib cage. None of these muscles work independently. They must all work in unison to perform and function correctly. Bill gives the example of a boxer sliding and twisting just before he hits his opponent. Yes he is using his upper body also but he can’t complete a punch with any power if his mid section isn’t fully involved. Bill gives us some great examples of mid section training. We talk about training with sandbags, stones and kegs and the benefits of these awkward  objects. Eric talks about one particular lift he uses for grip strength and the direct effect it has on the midsection. If you’ve ever wanted to build the strongest and most functional mid section in the world then we have pure gold for you. The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn.

Ingrid Marcum-Athlete-#299-Eric Fiorillo Host of The Number One Podcast show in the World Motivation and Muscle Welcomes First Time Guest, Olympic Lifter, Gymnast, US Bobsled Team Athlete, Highland Games and Personal Trainer Ingrid Marcum to The Podcast Show. Ingrid has done some amazing things in her athletic career starting at the age of two years old in gymnastics. As our listeners know when I have a guest on for the first time the format is loose to get them introduced to the Motivation and Muscle Family. Eric asks Ingrid a question he asks himself everyday. Why Do You Lift? Ingrid tells us from a very young age she was very strong and powerful. Gymnastics really paved the way to further create this young genetically gifted athlete. We talk about carrying and the benefits it creates. There is nothing like pure strength and explosive speed due to bear hugging and carrying an object in front of you. Ingrid and I believe this could be the one common denominator missing from your training which could put you over the top. We talk about injuries and when an athlete feels broken. Ingrid is a gym owner and she relates to me how she has begun to hone in on that with the athlete reassuring them that we all have greatness and we can change the outcome with our approach and the exercises we need to get back on track toward our goals. Ingrid is loaded with information and training principals. She is the complete athlete.We are Extraordinary not Ordinary and that’s how we change minds and hearts. Believe in your greatness!  The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn. Enjoy!

Stephen Santangelo-Strength and Organics-#282

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!

Travis Futrell-Strength Coach-#275

Travis Futrell-Strength Coach-#275-Powerlifter and Strength Coach Travis Futrell joins host Eric Fiorillo on The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show. Eric and Travis talk about what it takes to be a good strength coach. We talk about what is needed when you start a new program. We make reference to bridging, posture and how many young men have such a poor grip. One common denominator he finds with some of his clients is there are no more dragons to slay. I use this metaphor to point to there was a time when men would go on some type of expedition or conquest to prove their worthiness to themselves or others of importance. We don’t do a lot of manual labor anymore or use our hands to move and pickup things. This creates not only hand weakness but it also effects the body whole. We talk about the importance of a strength coach to draw up the athletes program, to keep evaluating the athletes progress and to choose the movements that will enhance the athletes power, strength attitude and endurance.  Travis and I believe some of the best strength coaches originate from the garages, basements or come from the outdoor environment. This strength coach is already battle tested and has been put in situations because of their environment and  fought their way out and succeeded. This is why they can teach and succeed this way because of hands on experience. This always translates best to producing the most successful athlete in their chosen sport.
