Chris Duffin: The True Meaning of Strength

Finding Mastery

This week’s conversation is with Chris Duffin, a world-record holding powerlifter who is commonly known as the “Mad Scientist of Strength”.Chris is arguably one of the strongest pound-for-pound humans in the world – he is the only person to squat and deadlift over 1,000 pounds for reps, has a Guinness World Record for the sumo deadlift, and was ranked the number one powerlifter in the world for eight years straight. However, Chris’ strength extends far beyond the physical domain – in his best-selling memoir The Eagle and The Dragon, Chris tells the unfiltered version of his unconventional and harrowing journey from a boy born in chaos to the self-made man he is today. And that’s what this conversation is all about – how true strength is about so much more than lifting heavy weights. Chris shares how struggle propelled him forward, how he responds to adversity, what it means to be there for others, and how the human spirit can be either shackled by circumstance or freed from it.-----You can also watch this - and every - conversation on our YouTube channel.Connect with us on our Instagram.For more information and shownotes from every episode, head to findingmastery.net.-----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.

281 How To Overcome Anything with World Champion Power Lifter Chris Duffin 

Christopher Lochhead Follow Your Different™

On this episode of Christopher Lochhead: Follow Your Different, we talk about how we can create & design your life, and overcome anything with our guest, Chris Duffin. Chris Duffin is the world record holder in 1000-pound deadlifts and squats. He is one of the strongest men on planet Earth, which is a very legendary achievement. He’s also an author of a fascinating riveting book called The Eagle and the Dragon, a story of Strength and Reinvention. Those achievement on themselves are amazing, but when you hear more about his background, it becomes a whole new level of legendary. Liquid Courage The conversation starts on the topic of alcohol, and how it helps take down the defenses that people normally have with strangers or on speaking in public. Chris Duffin follows up with a related piece that he wrote about drinking back in 2014, which was called Whiskey and Deadlifts. “It actually talks about how alcohol can be used as a performance enhancer. And I talked about the history of it actually being used as that which a lot of people aren’t aware of.” – Chris Duffin It’s certainly not an endorsement of excessive alcohol drinking by any means. But it gives a good glimpse on the world of powerlifting. Chris also says that he might update it soon, so look out for that. Chris Duffin on his journey The conversation shifts to Chris’ life story, which he admits took him a while to tell it comfortably. For him, it shows how you can move the needle in life with the right approaches from a mental aspect. For Chris, it’s not exactly a “woe is me” story, as he has created what he wants to do with his life now, and moving forward. The story is actually opening from his book, The Eagle and the Dragon. It starts when he was six years old and living in the wilderness. Not just for camping and vacationing, but full-on living in the wilds, exposed to deadly animals and the like. “On that first story, I was being taught how to handle and capture live rattlesnakes, we were killing them, so that we could sell the skins and try to make ends meet. But also, I was being taught at six years old, because that was the environment we lived in. And then I needed to have that for my safety.” – Chris Duffin Creating His Own Path Other stories in Chris’ childhood involved other dangerous elements in their life, in this case it was traffickers and serial killers. To be exposed to such situations at such a young age, it was not an environment that someone should be exposed to growing out. Which is why Chris found himself gravitating to sports, trying to bring in some money to help the family, and he also found comfort in doing athletic activities. Due to his efforts, he eventually got a full-ride academic scholarship to go to a school for a dual engineering degree, and eventually worked on his MBA. As he was working and studying away from his family most of the while, it apparently got worse on the home situation. So much that he had to take custody of his little sisters, so he could help and guide them towards better choices in life, and help heal the trauma that they have been through as well.

Chris Duffin: The Mad Scientist of Strength, 1000 lbs. World Record Powerlifter, How Your Demons Can Help You

The Gabby Reece Show

My guest today is known as The Mad Scientist of Strength, Mr. Chris Duffin. Before all the females run for the door, Chris shares his tale of growing up in the forest, helping support his younger sisters while on scholarship in college, and, oh yes, how he squatted and deadlifted 1000 pounds for multiple reps.Chris was a guy working as an engineer by day and being a strong man by night. How does one believe they can lift 1000 pounds and what is the approach to the pursuit? This is a human conversation with a highly intelligent man who reminds us that we all have moments of superhuman if we believe and figure out how. You can not lift this kind of weight by being really "strong," you have to also have a brilliant mind to understand the mechanism at work. He shows us some of his equipment to make our workouts safer and smarter.Chris also shares how sometimes your demons can be helpful, but then what do you do with them when they don't serve you any longer?
