Will is a Trainer, Strongman, Owner of Epic Fitness Solutions, Writer and Arm Wrestler. Can you smell the testosterone in the air? Eric and Will hit the mark with part 1 of Heavy Pulls. Eric and Will talk about the car deadlift, deadlifts, stiff legged deadlifts, monster rows and stone lifts and walks just to name a few.
We talk about the pulls we like to do and the benefits each one will have building your mind and physique into a giant of a man or woman.
We talk about the car deadlift Will did for multiple days. His body was pumped from head to toe for a week. As Will relates to Eric his physique looked just like an off season bodybuilder. He literally was blown up.
We also talk about a program Eric has been doing with 3 pulls in a row. As Eric told Will who’s to tell me you can’t do 3 pulls in a row. This consisted of the hand/thigh deadlift, Husasteel Stone Walk and the Strict Barbbell Curl. What a man making routine this is and one which will give you a gorilla like physique when given enough time and patience.
We talk about lifting the Atlas Stones and doing heavy distance walks with the Husasteel Stone. We also talk about the power of partials relating to pulling super heavy Husasteel Stones.
This podcast is charged from head to toe with a wicked amount of aggression and testosterone. So get out there tonight and do some heavy pulls!

Roger LaPointe-Clean and Press-#329-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes The President of Atomic Athletic, Olympic Lifter and Competitor, Stone Lifter and Strength Historian Roger LaPointe to the Broadcast. Who out there in Motivation and Muscle Land doesn’t like to press overhead? There are so many ways to do this. Eric and Roger talk about this man making exercise and like the dip, bent row, Hise shrug and the pullover they have been cast aside for other exercises which don’t require as much hard work. We talk about the positive effects the overhead press has on your muscular structure from head to toe. When you add the clean in with the press you’ll build slabs of usable muscle able to clean and press whatever you set your sights upon. We also talk about the visual look of a heavy overhead presser. Take a look at their spinal erectors. Their spinal erectors are thick and deep and have the look of power. For anyone who is a fan of the great John Grimek Roger has uncovered a picture of Grimek doing an extreme “Lay back” style press from the early 1930s. Grimek is pressing a huge globe barbell showing that to become great at pressing or in life you’ll do the things others won’t do to become great!

Donnie tells us a little bit about himself especially his New York days starting out lifting with his buddies back in the old Muscle and Fitness world. If you weren’t a bodybuilder you were a power strength guy who wanted to build a massive chest. Most of the guys had big chests and small legs. As Donnie said it was a New York Thing. It was all about the look. As he developed and grew he realized that your physical attributes weren’t all about your chest. Donnie and Eric talk about the old bodybuilding magazines and the advent of the Rocky movies and how guys wanted to be macho and strong. We talk about the guys getting injuries back in the day and how the advent of the internet today has helped get more information out on how to heal the injuries and get back into training. Donnie talks extensively on how his own shoulder injury created out of necessity a way to find out and heal a shoulder injury that he had to deal with for ten years. Through self study, lots of internet hours and trial and tribulation with different implements Donnie created the Adex Club.

Attitude. What is it and what does it mean to you?
Eric and Mike deliver another all out podcast to point you in the right direction to make life happen for you in a big way.
Eric and Mike talk about your attitude and how it will make or break you in life’s endeavors. It’s just as easy to have a winning attitude as it is to have a poor attitude. We give to huge examples of 2 young winners associated with myself and the show.
The first one is Casey Walker who won our FBC/Stronger Grip Sledge Hammer contest. This 12 year old young man was absolutely spectacular in his approach to weight training and the will to get it done. He inspired me to want to go after bigger and better things in and out of the gym.
The second young member of our audience was my niece Olivia who got a perfect score at her clarinet recital. As Olivia told me and understands at 10 years old attitude and hard work go hand and hand. Eric and Mike talk about the discipline of training and how Eric feels when he takes an extended layoff his attitude becomes bad.
Mike explains to Eric its not a bad attitude but the idea that these are the things we must do to keep forging and growing our craft.
These are the things that separate us from the also runs in in the spirit of attitude and life. Eric and Mike give you example after example of ways to build a winning attitude for all the great things in life that you want to achieve. Remember this.
What we do here today will echo through eternity!
Join us and be part of our attitude.
