Mark Bell: How To Get Jacked And Tan And Other Life Lessons

The B.rad Podcast

“You don’t just fall apart when you get old—it’s the bad habits that are potentially going to cause you to fall apart much faster.” It’s time to meet the meathead millionaire, my good friend Mark Bell, co-host of the sensational podcast, Power Project. Mark is a legend in the powerlifting and fitness community, a well known fitness entrepreneur, and a free-thinking and motivated guy who is all about dedicating his time towards helping others. In this thoughtful episode Mark and I talk about fitness and diet, and it gets pretty deep at times as he opens up about important moments in his life story, like the untimely death of his role model and older brother—a tragedy that became the catalyst for him to pursue his dreams. You’ll also hear Mark talk about how he lost over 100 pounds and kept it off, the different diets he has experimented with over the last decade, how to set attainable diet and fat reduction goals, and finally, how his lifelong exploration of healthy eating has led him to meat and fruit (plus, a little bit about the special project we’re working on together!).  TIMESTAMPS: It’s every human being’s job to make yourself super resilient. [09:16] Many people just sweep their problems under the rug and walk around like a stress bomb. [18:26] Make a plan and stick with it. [22:41] Mark’s journey from wrestling with his brothers to power lifting is detailed. [27:15] The first thing you want to do to become a competitive power lifter is to gain weight. [37:59] Your first rep should look like your last rep. Prioritize what you want to get good at. [40:59] Try something totally new to what you have been doing.  Do it gradually. [46:51] Pain and injury can be your teacher. They monitor how you should be using your body. [53:11] There are many ways to train and to train cheating the system. You always have to work around potential problems. [58:49] Reproduction, repair, growth, and locomotion are a zero-sum game. [01:04:35] Find what works for you. Being on a diet doesn’t have to be boring. [01:08:37] Your relationship with food changes when you totally adjust your intake from training. [01:16:23] When you go into power lifting, putting on weight is a good way to get stronger. [01:19:39] What is the secret behind the slingshot? [01:21:30] How did Mark get into the entrepreneur position after the power lifting? How did he lose the excess body weight from the 330 pounds he was carrying around? [01:25:41] People who carry extra weight need to think about the joints wearing out as well as heart and kidneys. It’s never too late to turn the corner. [01:55:56] Negative emotions come from negative interpretations.

#549 - Mark Bell - Stop Being Shamed Out Of Your Competitive Edge

Modern Wisdom

Mark Bell is a world record-breaking powerlifter, owner of Super Training Gym and inventor of the Sling Shot. A lack of support killed more dreams than a lack of competence ever did. There's a modern trend that trying hard at things and taking them seriously is uncool. Disincentivising excellence is one of the worst habits a society can have and it's time to put a stop to it. Expect to learn why taking a compliment is a skill that many of us don't have, why there is no growth without having a goal you're working toward, why Mark has never had a bad day, what it was like to train under the legendary Louie Simmons at Westside Barbell, how crucial the story you tell yourself about life is and much more...

Mark Bell: How To Coach A Dominant Scrum

Wandering Bear Sports

This week on the podcast we sit down with one of the godfathers of Australian Scrum coaching former Wallaby Mark Bell. In Bellys playing career he played his school rugby at St Joseph's College, Hunters Hill - Australia's leading rugby nursery. A consistent hooker, Bell played in the undefeated 1st XV premiership team of 1986. That was the springboard to higher honours as a record-equalling ten players from that side were picked in the GPS 1st XV and from there Bell was selected for the Australian Schools tour of New Zealand. He played his club football in Sydney with Northern Suburbs and his strong performances were rewarded in 1992 with a debut for New South Wales against New Zealand. The following year Bell was a member of the Australian squad for the short tour of North America and France but he did not play in any of the Tests. In 1996 both Marco Caputo and Michael Foley were injured in the second Test of the home series against Wales. As a consequence Bell was called into the squad and made his Test debut the following week against Canada in Brisbane. During his coaching career Belly has coached at the Queensland Reds, Japan Rugby National Team, Australian Rugby Union, Suntory, Canon, Easts Rugby Union, Sydney University, Merewether Carlton and the mighty Hunters Hill Under 14s.

Mark opened his own gym called Super Training Gym after moving his young family to northern California, where he has trained ever since.
