004: Spartan Up! Interviews Barbell Shrugged

Synopsis:

Joe banters with the guys from Barbell Shrugged at the Pittsfield Original General Store. Barbell Shrugged, a podcast for all things Crossfit, was Joe’s inspiration for the one you’re about to watch. The guys chat about everything from the future of Spartan Race to what life would be like if Joe were king. (Hint: not too easy.) Is Joe heading to a counterculture rave in the desert? Joe is hosting a cruise this spring. What gives? Is he finally going soft? Find out the fascinating answers in this podcast!

Lessons:

  1. You grow by pushing your limits until you level out into complacency, and then pushing on to the next limit.
  2. If you want to change the world, first you must make your bed (i.e., take the first small step).
  3. If everyone thinks you’re strange, take heart. It may just mean you’re years ahead of your time.

Panel Notes:

Joe Desena: These boys from down south are good ol’ boys, but don’t let the accent fool you. They are fluxing smart. They know their shix when it comes to business, health and wellness, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Col. Nye: Build on small successes.Small successes can lead to a larger goal. Sometimes the goal is unknown or undefined but movement and effort will help bring it into focus. Don’t be afraid of the future.
