Donnie "Super D" Thompson knows a thing or two about lifting heavy weights. He earned himself the nickname "Mr. 3000" by being the first human to total 3000lbs in powerlifting back in 2011.
Along the way, Donnie has had his fair share of ups and downs. However he has an infectious positive attitude, a passion for helping people, and an unquenchable thirst for learning. These elements make for a conversation that is educational, entertaining, and full of life lessons whether you are a lifter or not.
In this episode, Super D shares his learnings and philosophies with Managing Editor Becca Borawski Jenkins and Coach Chet Morjaria.
These days Donnie is co-owner of a gym called The Compound, and helps athletes to reach better performance through mobility, performance therapy and lifting heavy weights - all with the help of a few of his own evil tools and inventions.

Then, Special guest Israel McGhee
What You Believe You Will Achieve.......................
My sole purpose is to build and renew mind body and soul.............
The McGhee Experience is a life-changing experience. We work heavily on strengthening the mind because your thoughts guide your body. Greatness is not something you become but something that exists in you. And it is our job to bring that out. We are passionate about helping you reach your goals and our compassion is what sets us apart. Simply.. we put the “PERSONAL” in Personal Training.
Israel Samuel Mcghee started in fitness world at the tender age of 13. His desire to excel sent him on a quest to change his body, as he realized it was the key to reaching the goals he had set for himself at that time. From there it became a part of his life, just like the air we breathe.
“I fell in love deeply and never looked back. Transitioning from sports to powerlifting and ultimately bodybuilding, my journey was very full-filling. And in doing so I acquired a great amount of knowledge. It is my desire to share that knowledge with others to motivate, encourage and help them achieve the change they desire; aiding them in a lifestyle renewal versus a quick, temporary fix.”
I remember having a friend who was very dear to me pass away from Diabetes and from that moment my vision has been ever so clear. It became my destiny to ultimately live a life that helped others stay uplifted and motivated and just be the reason people wanted to change. It’s my purpose and I intend on full-filling it with all that I am.
Here's a bonus Q & A episode that we recorded back on October. We started out talking about pizza for breakfast, and ended up at the best "advices" we've ever been given. Along the way we talk about lactose intolerance, whether a national meet can just be too big,“tournament style powerlifting,” testing one rep maxes, whether sticking points are real, the role of speed work, religion and morals, and our hobbies outside lifting.Mark Bell hosts with Michael Farr and show producer Jim McDonald
It's a pretty info-packed question and answer session! We cover a ton of topics including, long arm benchers, getting used to knee wraps, whether you should leave some reps in the tank, and if we think one powerlifting federation would be a good idea.Mark Bell hosts with Michael Farr and show producer Jim McDonald .
We asked for your questions NOT directly related to fitness, nutrition, powerlifting, etc. We still got a few of those, but for the most we were asked about personal interests, insights, and perhaps most importantly, about where we find inspiration and motivation.Mark Bell hosts with Michael Farr and show producer, Jim McDonald.
Dr. Layne Norton, and his friend and colleague Paul Revelia, join us to talk about business, nutrition...and sex in space. We deleve into their backgrounds, uncover how they came to be involved in natural bodybuilding and powerlifting, and what drives them to succeed. We talk about nutrition strategies for better performance and Layne makes a BIG announcement.You can find Layne at biolayne.com and on social media at @biolayne, and Paul at prophysique.com and on social media at @paulrevelia.Check out Layne's podcast, "Physique Science Radio" on iTunes.Mark Bell hosts with Michael Farr and Jim McDonald.

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 old Iron Man magazine, Brad Steiner's articles, Stuart McRobert's Hardgainer, Iron Nation, Osmo Kiiha's The Iron Master, you will love the show.
