Interview with Coach Rich Thurman

By | Deadlift, Food for thought, Health Tips, Interviews, motivation, Tip Tuesdays, Training Tips | No Comments

I’ve known Coach Rich since way back in 2010. I think as an athlete I’ve been very blessed to have gotten to know, work with amazing people and coaches.That time he was more into strength and conditioning as a trainer. He still does coaching and training but his training methodology and philosophy has changed. Mainly by incorporating more natural movements and tools likes mace, club bells and everything else in between.

I had an amazing session with Rich as I take him through the paces of what I do for stability and on a rehab day. In this session we traded training philosophies and different training techniques.

One of the points that we talked about was the importance of showing up and doing your best at competitions. Instead of just achieving PBs at the gym because only lifts at competitions counts. What was interesting was when Coach Rich asked me what I did for a day job… Do catch that bit during the interview.

I really enjoyed this interview / training session because it was pretty chill but we also managed to put in the work. We do hope that you enjoy the

Interview with Jiri Tkadlčík

Interview with Jiri Tkadlčík 

This month’s I had the utmost privilege of speaking with one of the the world’s best Under 105kg Strongman Athletes. And also my good friend Jiri Tkadlčík from Czech Republic! Jiri and myself have known each other for the past three years. We have also crossed paths and competed alongside each other at the Arnolds South Africa and Loket, Czech Republic.

This time he has made the long and arduous journey of flying in to sunny Singapore from the cold winter of Czech Republic! He has also put his name down to compete in the inaugural Asia Pacific Deadlift Championships 2018. Jiri is also the World Record Holder for the Deadlift with a previous record of 382kg successfully attempted in Ukraine in 2017!

The Singapore Experience

In this video, he talks a little bit about the strongman scene in Czech Republic. His new discovery of proper Asian Cuisine and his hopes for himself and the sport in Czech Republic.

We also talked if he would attempt to break his own world record at the Asia Pacific Deadlift Championships in Singapore… He was feeling rather conservative that day!

And of course being good hosts, we brought him and Valerie out and about in Singapore where no tourists would go for the full on local experience.

We hope that you enjoy watching this video as much as we had fun bringing him out in Singapore
