This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I interview former professional powerlifter, owner of Super Training Gym, and Inventor of the Sling Shot, Mark Bell (@marksmellybell). As a successful competitor, inventor, and business owner Mark offers a lot of knowledge when it comes to staying motivated and personal development. This episode is all about making sure you’re staying patient, honest and contributing to those around you, no matter your field of interest. We talk about the importance of exercise, the process of getting strong, the different types of strength, and what he has seen top performers do that contribute to their overall success. Enjoy the show!
