Chris Duffin is a super-smart, analytical, and incredibly dedicated BEAST of a human being.
He’s an ultra-elite powerlifter who has deadlifted 1000 lbs for reps and is now closing in on his grand goal of also squatting over 1000 lbs.
I spent almost 1 1/2 hours chatting with him about his insane feats of strength at his gym and manufacturing facility and got a ton of insights into his training methodology and mindset.
In addition to the weightlifting we also talk about how he overcame a childhood spent in isolation and complete poverty, training through and around injuries, struggling with addiction, the importance of escaping bad influences, how to achieving big goals, and much more.
Check it out – I think you’ll really enjoy it!
