Mr. Natural Universe Powerlifter & Fitness Model Mike O'Hearn
Just picked up a copy of Miscle and Fitbess today as I had a long journey and needed something to break up the time. Now I know tht usually theses magazines are full of the same rubbish but today one article caught my attention regarding powerlifting with Mike O'Hearn going through the big 3 with a fitness model. There's also an accompanying video (all the w's.muscle-fitness.co.uk/video/30/rr8) and around the 20:50minute mark he begins to discuss the bench press. Great quote in the video from O'Hearn ~2:30. "Remember, you only gain strength from building muscle." I'm sure most Olympic weightlifters and powerlifters follow this idea.
O'Hearn is a champion with a resume a mile long. You can see him as Team Captain Titan in American Gladiators. In addition to 4-time Mr. Natural Universe titles, O'Hearn is also a 4-time Power Lifting Champion, and Iron Warrior: Decathlon of Strength Strongman Champion. He is a well-rounded athlete with a background in natural bodybuilding, strongman, power lifting, and martial arts. Women around the world will recognize O'Hearn as the cover model for Topaz romance novels. I've met the guy years ago and he was super nice then. For bodybuilding, dieting, modeling, and the fitness industry in general I'd totally take his advice. He's been in that game for a long long time. He is a strong guy but for powerlifting advice not so much.
O'Hearn, you know him as the American Gladiator Titan. He has been featured on over 470 magazine covers, was Fitness Model of the Year seven times, was a champion in judo and tae kwon do, and was a four-time Mr. Natural Universe title holder. Mike O’Hearn is here today to talk about Power Bodybuilding and how you can powerlift and bodybuild all together.
