Quint Zambon joins us this week to talk about his experience training and competing in strongman. If you’re like me, when you think about the sport of strongman,you imagine towering European physiques, hands that could palm a med ball, and a viral video of a guy simultaneously vomiting and doing a tire deadlift ladder. But, at just 5’6″ and 170 lbs, Quint represents the lighter weight class of this growing competitive niche. Hear about how he transitioned from soccer, yes soccer, to other end of the spectrum of strength and conditioning.
Not only does Quint have some advice for any up and coming competitors out there, but as a coach of many youth athletes he’s able to shed some light on the woes of managing large groups of especially needy high schoolers. Quint is no stranger to the not uncommon use of special supplements in strongman and has seen the performance effects on peers.
