Episode 19: Dude! Don't Be an Idiot! Sex, Drugs and Fitness w/Aron Snyder
Aron History fat kid joined the army and then got skinny. After the army he got fat again. Kept eating Butterfingers and Pepsi.
Aron got skinny again and started doing races. He wanted to bench over 500lbs. He weighed 270lbs --"with some drugs that weren’t legal." He dealt with super human aggression and emotion. He said he got so big I couldn’t hardly hunt and he dealt with depression.
Muscle can be built in different ways. Puffy muscle. Doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re stronger. It’s not dense. He got back into backpack hunting. But the drugs caused Arrhythmia. He got depression and battled "Bigger-exia."
Clarity to exercise with the end goal in mind. Aron exercises with a pack on because he wants to be able to hunt with a pack. What’s your end goal? What do you want to be good at? Exercise and train for that. Longevity - Overall health in life.
