No Excuse To Miss

In this new episode of the No Excuse to Miss Podcast, Scott welcomes former NFL player John Welbourn to talk about his career, his current work at Power Athlete, his motivations to getting into sports, and his approach with performance training. John shares about his background as a football athlete, how he was able to overcome his rough injuries, and who he sees as a football model and inspiration today.

How to Build a Power Athlete with NFL Veteran John Welbourn S17Ep5 - The Competition Series

Barbell Logic

John Welbourn joins Scott & Matt to discuss his journey from skinny kid to NFL athlete to fitness figure trying to share the benefits of strength & fitness.  John Welbourn enjoyed a long career in the NFL, in part because of his dedication in the gym and in the kitchen. He ate healthy foods, being an early adopter of the paleo diet, and saw the benefits on the field from getting strong in the gym. He also got a degree in rhetoric, of all things, certainly flying in the face of the typical big, strong guy stereotype.  As he transitioned out of the NFL, he found CrossFit and initially bought into the idea of metabolic fitness serving as the base to build a well-rounded general fitness, but quickly realized that strength offers a better base upon which to add metabolic conditioning (think of someone with a 405 clean & jerk doing Grace--30 135lb clean & jerks--versus someone with a 185 clean & jerk, regardless of if the weaker person is better conditioned). Despite John’s elite performance, he has a lot of practical wisdom and ultimately decided to use his knowledge and skills to help everyday people, not just act like the elite strength plans should be followed by novices.
