#94 - Mike Rashid On Inspiring People, Training Methods & Positivity

Mike Rashid is a former professional boxer and power bodybuilder. He is the owner of Iron Addicts Gym in Miami, the president of Gifted Nutrition and CEO of Interstellar Media. He is also the author of the Overtraining series of eBooks.

The boys start by asking Mike what brings him over to Melbourne, and the convo quickly moves to about what it feels like to be able to reach people, travel and inspire them. Things go off tangent for a bit and later on Doc and Tommy ask what made Mike such a good trainer.

There’s talk of aesthetics versus lifestyle and function, using fear as a motivator and about Mike’s boxing career. They also explore how to stay calm and get focused during fights, and Doc shares a story about the only time in his life he’s ever punched someone in the face. Later in they talk about training methods and cover plenty of other things.

This has been an absolutely amazing episode! Lots of topics covered making for a good, long convo. There’s plenty for you guys to listen in on, and you can definitely find something to take away from this one. Enjoy!
