Tex McQuilkin : WWO Podcast - Episode 5
If it is in the world of Strength & Conditioning, Tex McQuilkin knows about it or better yet, is teaching it.
Known for his Power Athlete HQ fame - Tex travels the globe teaching S & C seminars and we were lucky enough to snag him on the WWO Podcast during his recent trip down under.
My Specific Essay Question for Tex was:
I don't know any High School Quarterbacks, but I know plenty who are the equivalent in Australia whether that be AFL, Rugby League or an assortment of other sports, proper teenage studs, and all of them bar one went on to achieve nothing in their sport.
What is Potential? How important is it? ... and if I am someone with it; What do I need to know so that I can take what I have and achieve my ultimate desire.
This was a powerful podcast with enlightening discussion. Enjoy!

** Towards the end of the podcast there is some pretty creepy breathing on my part. I was trialing a new mic - it will not be getting used again.
