Pull up to the table and join the crew of Legends of Iron as we talk about the 40 year career (so far!) of the great Mike O’ Hearn, the triple threat powerlifter, bodybuilder and cover model. Born into a large family with 10 kids, he learned to be self sufficient early on. At 15 Mike started hitting the gym, training with big name powerlifters. At 20 he got a call from Joe Weider and a contract. That was the start of Mike O’Hearn’s journey in the fitness world. O’Hearn hits upon many topics in this episode, including: Growing up and training with incredibly competitive brothers…and sisters! Training leg day with workout partner Tom Platz. How he keeps a positive chip on his shoulder. The importance of protecting tendon and ligament strength. Healthy eating strategies. Nick brings up that one time Mike beat him in a competition but never let it happen again! Mike also tells us about the time he fell 6 feet of the stage while posing, some of the best strength battles of his life, the problems with these kids today and what it’s been like to finally be a father.
