Today we wanted to discuss prepping for the new year. A lot of people out there set “New Year’s Resolutions” to lose weight, eat better, pack on some muscle or whatever.

How about doing something different this year….like getting the results you seek and holding onto them throughout the year? https://www.ironcompany.com

Hugh Cassidy was a powerlifting pioneer becoming the sports first super heavyweight world champion in 1971. He could bench 570 lbs. with a two second pause and squat 800 lbs. below parallel without a suit. As a pioneer, there was no template and very little information, if any, to follow. He was a true strength strategist and ironically, many of these strategies are still used today. Listen in while we discuss this unique powerhouse, Hugh Cassidy. https://www.ironcompany.com
