Former MLB player, Jack Howell, wishes that he had a little nutrition know-how with all the weight training years ago. But now he does, thanks to Dr. Mark Sherwood, and all the other coaches want to know what he was doing to look better.
Now, we aren’t talking about weight necessarily, but HEALTH. He looks younger and healthier.
In this episode, you’ll discover:
- He is most remembered for his “broken-bat home run” (It’s worth looking up on Google.)
- He’s worked hard to remain humble his whole life
- What the lesson is in the book “The Compound Effect”
- “There’s a 10 for 10 right around the corner!”
Jack says you have to know yourself and what works for you. If you are not supplementing and making healthy choices, you are sliding downhill. Don’t let yourself slide into a deficit.
“There’s a 10 for 10 right around the corner. Stay the course.”
Meet Jack Howell
It’s one thing to dream of the Major Leagues, another to get there. Still another to STAY there for over 10 years.
Meet Jack Howell. When you dream of the Major Leagues in high school, but graduate as a 5’4, 135-pound guy, most people would give up that dream. Jack Howell is NOT “most people.” After taking a little over a year off, and working out extensively, he tried out again. This time, he was a 6’, 195-pound athlete. Talk about a late bloomer!
What is he up to now? He’s training his neighbors! He moved back to Tucson, where he grew up, and wound up in the same neighborhood as an old friend of his. After meeting again and taking a tour of the friend’s house, Jack discovered that his friend had a complete indoor gym and that no one had even been in that room for four or five years.
Jack looked like he was in good shape, so the friend asks Jack to come and train he and his wife. Now that room is getting a workout, and so are the people in it!
