    EP011: True Strength - Ed Coan

    Gerrit sits down at Lance's Gym in Chicago to chat with legendary powerlifter, and personal friend, Ed Coan. To most people that have ever touched a barbell, Eddy is considered to be the greatest powerlifter of all time. That's how Gerrit saw him when they first crossed paths when Gerrit was training at age 16. He idolized the power, focus, and sheer will that Eddy displayed in competition. It was years later where Gerrit actually had an opportunity to not only meet his idol, but to train with him, and eventually become a close friend.

    As many people have noted after talking with Ed Coan, he comes off as extremely genuine, both when he is being cordial and kind, as well as those moments where he can be candid and tough. He's always himself, and doesn't try to put on a show for anyone...

    If you've ever wondered how a legendary powerlifter fights through pain, how he becomes the greatest of all time, and what his diet looks like, check this episode out.
