Guest will be: Robert Margolin- Animal Rights Activist, Screenwritter, Martial Arts Grandmaster, Fitness and Health Guru
Robert's first real job was working at a Chuck Norris karate studio. Robert's also started writing Martial Arts movies and was in talks to star in one of those movies while training for his fighting debut. Robert was a passenger in a fatal freeway accident that broke his back and left him in a body brace for 2 years. He lost 80 lbs. of lean muscle and at 6 ft. tall Robert was down to 115 lbs. and felt weaker than a newborn kitten. Seven doctors told him he would never be able to do Martial Arts again.
Finally, Robert's family helped to load him into the car and took me to see Franco Columbu. He cut him out of the body brace and together they started rebuilding his back. The first deadlift he did was measured in inches and ounces. Robert eventually worked up to over 400 lbs. Robert did preacher curls with Hulk Hogan, bench presses with Jake (Body By Jake), and Carl Weathers showed his favorite exercises. Robert's healing journey had begun! His Vegan lifestyle has made him healthier and help others to do the same. Robert educating and spreading awareness throughout.. Being a animal rights activists and helping the animals in need and being a voice for the voiceless.
