Reese Hoffa flew from Georgia to New Jersey (just for the DAY) to appear on this week's Industrial Strength Show! You won't find too many people with this level of commitment and dedication, but then again, Reese Hoffa isn't your "average" human being. He's a 3X Olympian (Shot Put), bronze medalist in the 2012 Olympics, 2X world champion, and ranked Top 3 in the world for 10 consecutive years! But, if you think Reese's physical strength and athletic accomplishments are the most impressive things about him, you're wrong! Reese has one of the most incredible 'life stories' you will ever hear. In fact, at one point in the podcast, Reese's story had Joe D. at a loss for words (and that never happens lol).
Besides hearing Reese's childhood story - other topics of discussion include: The exercises that Reese feels had the highest carryover to the Shot Put; Life after the Olympic games (Does anything compare?); The coping mechanisms Reese used to help him get through his toughest times; The "Forge" (body tempering tool) that Reese co-created...and Much MORE!
