STRONG Life Ep 60: Cory Gregory on Mental Toughness, Dedication & Work Ethic



In episode 60 of The STRONG Life Podcast I grill Cory Gregory of Muscle Pharm BUT NOT in the typical interview style you've been hearing recently.

We crushed this STRONGCast for 1 hour and then I went back and added my BIG takeaways from this interview and lessons in general from Cory.

Here's just some of what you'll learn from this episode:

- How does Cory wake up everyday at 4:10 AM and is now on his 500th day of Squatting everyday?

- How does Cory keep that mental toughness going, even during the brutal, dark, cold winter months in Ohio?

- Why does Cory stay in Ohio when he easily could have picked up and moved his family to San Diego, Miami, Denver, etc?

- How does Cory deal with the naysayers, the haters and the negative energy that comes from being a large public figure in the fitness industry?

- What BIG lessons did Cory learn from 2 of the most influential men in fitness: Bill Phillips and Arnold.

- How does Cory structure his day with eating, training, work and family life?

- How to eat to get Ripped? Cory's exact daily nutrition plan is detailed.

Speaking with Cory, even just through text messages fires me up. Since we last spoke I already squatted 4 days in a row and on 2 of those days I trained twice a day.

Cory's videos on Squat Everyday are some of the most inspiring videos I have seen, along with his videos with Arnold, bringing to light never seen before footage from Pumping Iron.

Check out these Videos and check out our interview.

Of course,a 5 Star Rating on iTunes would be awesome, this info needs to be shared with more people!

Thank you for your support and enjoy!

  1. Hey Zach,

    Thanks for putting the Strong Life podcasts out, always a blast to hear you rip on life and training.

    I reviewed a book that I think is right up your alley, Eric Greitens’ Resilience: Hard-won Wisdom for Living a Better Life. Not sure if you’ve read it, but it’s a Navy SEAL’s take on what it takes to be tough and live a good life. I think you’ll love it:

    1. Alvin, thank you I will read that book!!!
