From sleeping in an ice-cold pickup truck to catching rattlesnakes barehand at 6 years old, Chris Duffin’s upbringing was unconventional and surreal.
Better known to the powerlifting community as “The Mad Scientist of Strength”, Chris discovered his strength by embracing his fear and facing the pain. As we discuss his autobiography, The Eagle and the Dragon: A Story of Strength & Reinvention, Chris explains that no set of circumstances defines who you are. Whatever has happened to you, does not define who you are.
In this episode, Chris and I talk about how why he decided to share his life’s story and how that has helped people from around the world. Listen as we go over:
- Why his story is not about his life, but about your future
- Handling uncertainty
- Adapting through struggle
- One of the 4 pillars of Kabuki Strength, Giving back
- Dropping 600lbs on his face
- Effort Base Training
- Squatting 1,000lbs
