Mr. Jon Call aka Jujimufu – Episode 159
I can still get stronger, I can still build more muscle, I can still learn new moves. I’m still 31, I’ve got more years in me before I see a slower decline.
I first learned of today’s guest through an online video someone shared. I was stunned at his strength and flexibility, especially considering his large size. It was clear this was a man with extreme athleticism. While I’m no tricker, I admire the movements many of them are capable of and I see the influence they’ve had on martial arts competitions.
It wasn’t until I heard him on fitness podcast that I learned Mr. Jon Call started his journey as a traditional martial artist. The man many know only as Jujimufu, who gained notoriety on America’s Got Talent for doing a split across two chairs while holding a weighted barbell overhead, came from the same beginnings as most of us. When I heard more of his story I knew we had to have him on the show.
Book – The Art of Expressing the Human Body, Stretching Scientifically: A Guide to Flexibility Training and his Mr. Call’s own book, Legendary Flexibility, available here.
