Natural Strength Night is an informative, humorous, sometimes a little raucous, good-time of myth busting and honest training
information from the trenches. We strive to help everyone involved with old school strength training (without steroids) to not make some common training mistakes. Along with great information, you'll hear a fair share of steroid bashing, flamingo sightings, breaking goons, iron game history, and honest drug-free training information from various leaders and strength coaches in the field to help you get real results! If your primary training information comes from reading "Muscle & Fiction" magazine we'll help get you straightened out. If you love high-intensity strength training, dinosaur style training and just like lifting heavy weights ... or loved Jack Lalanne, Sandow, Grimek, Peary Rader's Iron Man magazine, Brad Steiner's articles, Stuart McRobert's Hardgainer, Iron Nation, Osmo Kiiha's The Iron Master, you will love the show. On The Rugged Individual, we talk about obscene subjects like: success, motivation, liberty, Americana, capitalism, Jesus, self defense, guns, sports, eating meat, testicular fortitude and whatever the host wants. Relax. Here we are still a free country. The Rugged Individual... where good people roam.

LISTEN ON SOUND CLOUD

Tonight our guest is Roger La Pointe. I’ve known Roger for almost 20 years… he was just out of college and working for York Barbell when I first met him. He has a lot of interesting stories about his time at York … we’ll be talking about them tonight. There is a lot of information here. If you love iron game History, then you are in for a real treat!
 
Roger practices what he preaches and is pound for pound one of the strongest guys around in NATURAL strongman competitions and Olympic lifting. He has overhead pressed … atlas stones … heavier than his bodyweight. Roger is the CEO and owner of Atomic Athletic a great company that was a sponsor of several of my Capital City Strength Clinics. Atomic Athletic makes some of the toughest, hardcore strength training equipment you will find.  I’ve bought many items from Atomic Athletic, including 4 Granite stones, … Farmers Walk utensils, … thick bars, … chalk and many other items.
If you want to buy Strongman Stones, be sure to get them from Roger. Atomic Athletic Stones are chiseled out of GRANITE and are not the cheap stones on the market that are made of CONCRETE, that crack and break when you drop them. Everything from Atomic Athletic is top quality. Be sure to visit Roger's website at: AtomicAthletic.com  Roger, its great to have you on the show and welcome to NATURAL STRENGTH NIGHT.
