Interview: Mike Bledsoe Pt 1 - #054


In this episode, I interview Mike Bledsoe, one of the co-hosts of the popular strength and conditioning podcast, Barbell Shrugged and host of his own podcast, The Bledsoe Show. From the Navy, to IT, Exercise Science, CrossFit, and Podcasting, we'll talk about Mike's journey, his 'why' and how he makes that a daily part of his life.


This is Episode 54 and I'm Josh Newton

Welcome to the I'm Josh Newton show where it is all about putting your potential into practice. In this episode I'm going to be interviewing Mike Bledsoe.

Mike is one of the co-hosts of the popular strength and conditioning podcast the Barbell Shrugged and he also has his own podcast Bledsoe Pia. In this interview we will talk about Mike's Journey from high school to the Navy Seals and then to IT training and all the way to opening a CrossFit gym and starting his first podcast. We'll also talk about Mike's why and I think this is a really great example of somebody who has an overarching reason for why they're doing everything in their life. But he's also translated this into a great Howe and this is something that he uses every day at to keep himself grounded in the day today.

Just a quick disclaimer up before we jump into this interview, there is a little bit of profanity in this episode so if you're listening to the I'm Josh Newton podcast very loud in a public place for everyone to hear, which I very much encouraged, this may not be the episode.
