    Podcast Episode 126

    By David (Jacko) Jackson

    At the School of Calisthenics, we know that more often than not the thing standing between us and redefining our impossible is the simple fact that we are just not strong enough.

    So when you want to build strength and get superhuman strong, it’s a sensible starting point to go and find one of the strongest people in the world! Hence why we are so delighted to have strongman, Mark Bell, on the podcast to talk about getting superhuman strong!

    Now Mark isn’t a calisthenics athlete but a powerlifter and strongman, although COVID-19 has got him doing more bodyweight training than ever. He holds world records in powerlifting, has squatted over 1,000 pounds and what he doesn’t know about getting strong isn’t worth knowing.

    We talk all things strength, his personal view on what it takes as well as why his gym is completely FREE to members, you just pay with your work ethic and attitude.

    This was an incredible interview, hope you enjoy it.
