260 - AJ Roberts on How We Become Addicted To Training & How To Stop Sabotaging Our Own Progress

In this episode the boys talk with AJ Roberts, former 308lbs bodyweight All Time Total record holder in Powerlifting. Aj Has squatted over 1200 pounds and gorilla f**ked weights you can't even do the maths on.

After retiring from Powerlifting AJ ventured into Bodybuilding and then CrossFit... each time destroying the rest of his life in order to excel in the gym. On some level we can all relate to AJ's extreme behaviour and in this show we get into how he was able to break this self destructive cycle and live a happier life.
