How to Succeed in POWERLIFTING, LIFE, and LONGEVITY – ep.175 with my guest David Ricks

David Ricks and I share our thoughts and experiences on the issue found in the title of this episode, and I think we make it clear that success in powerlifting, life, and longevity go hand in hand, and that success in one area raises your chance for success in the other aspect of your life. We know what we’re talking about, as we both are stronger than most men who are half our age, and we have our histories of success in life.

David Ricks is a 10x IPF world champion, 30x USA national champion, world record holder, and member of the USAPL (USA Powerlifting) Hall of Fame.
