Today we spoke to JJ Dunne - gym owner, coach and competitor in powerlifting and bodybuilding
JJ is not your average ‘Personal Trainer’. The owner of Asylum Gym in Dublin he coaches people looking for real results, that are not afraid to be pushed ridiculously hard. He trains powerlifters, strongmen, bodybuilders and field athletes - and brings them all up to a very high level…if they want it bad enough. He still competes himself, although covid-19 has made it difficult, with competitions delayed and cancelled. He is hoping to compete in Malta this month.
We talk all things training, from recovery to the importance of diet and understanding nutrition. JJ sheds light on the best techniques for training and how he re-frames from adversity and setbacks – “do you deserve better?”.
“High performance is what you’re willing to put in”.
This was recorded pre-lockdown when times were different, but training philosophies were not. Thanks JJ!
