WKP # 108 LES WELCH ON GETTING FIT AND A LITTLE HUNTING

The White Knuckle Podcast- Powered By UC Hunting Properties

The White Knuckle Podcast Powered by Ozonics Hunting WKP # 108 LES WELCH ON GETTING FIT AND A LITTLE HUNTING Les Welch and Jason sit down to talk about fitness, hunting, and how the two worlds meet and what you can do to get fit for the upcoming season and make it a way of life. Les' FB https://www.facebook.com/LesWelch Peak Perfomance Multi Sport Training  https://www.facebook.com/Peak-Performance-Multisport-Coaching-968787743147306/?eid=ARD0DBe5IqBsmPZ5zPqMHILAxy4mQ_pGwESJ3tmJEXRv8AFurT49FIFtfx52tMGjjoq6lmjXvqB8zqzB&fref=tag Les Welch has been hunting and shooting for over 30 years. He grew up chasing small game and whitetails in the big woods of Northern Wisconsin. After harvesting whitetails with archery equipment, including many P&Y, and countless more with rifle and muzzleloader the desire to explore the mountains had become too much to overcome. In 2006, he started researching antelope. That led to the harvest of 6 DIY, public land antelope in 2007 between him and his father. That trip was the beginning of the obsession/addiction. Since that trip he has traveled West of the Mississippi on 8 more hunts, all 100% DIY public land.....with 100% success rates, harvesting multiple elk, mule deer, and antelope. Coming home to the flatlands after that first hunt back in '07 he realized the need to be in shape if success was going to continue. He dropped 60# and 20% body fat in a few months. He has since become a certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Coach. Understanding what the body needs to maximize performance whether he is running a race, competing in triathlons, or preparing for 15-20 day backpack backcountry hunts help ensure he achieves full potential. Year around gym time, training, scouting, and spending time in the outdoors with family maintain that healthy lifestyle to keep "mountain" ready!
