Mike Battaglino, is the strongest man in Texas and Oklahoma, literally .. he actually won both the Texas and Oklahoma Strongman Competitions for the 105kg (231.5lb) weight class. Not only is this man very strong - he’s extremely intelligent. You can hear his brain firing off through out the interview.
We talk a lot about nutrition:
-how many calories he takes in a day
-carbs are good (and needed)
-how his eating is different when he was competing at 300lb vs 230lb
-his all-time favorite burger
Other key takeaways:
-Mike’s long term 7 year goal to be competing as World's Strongest Man
-we all make time for things that are important to us, whether we realize it or not,
-dedicate our lives to a “magnificent obsession” (in the words of the great C.T. Fletcher)
-the importance of surrounding ourselves with positive people
-walking away from negative people
-and much much more.
This is one of my favorite interviews to date. It’s filled to the brim with powerful value. Share with a friend who needs to hear this!
