Episode Info:

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. 00:00 - Introduction to Breaking Muscle Radio 01:36 - Introduction to Donnie Thompson 03:55 - Where the nickname "Super D" came from 06:14 - Donnie's powerlifting records 08:40 - Balancing life and focusing on your goals 13:18 - Getting the body to work properly 15:50 - An explanation of body tempering 21:32 - What you need to perform body tempering on yourself 23:52 - Donnie's daughter 24:35 - Donnie' s recent inventions and intellectual property theft 31:17 - Donnie's current focus, looking after the body 34:27 - Using powerlifting techniques to get people ready for different sports 38:10 - The marriage mistake - doing the same thing all the time 40:27 - Advice on avoiding training fads and traps 44:51 - Why you need to think for yourself 47:02 - Donnie's seminars and products
