Paddy Holohan's No Shame Podcast
Lar Brennan | The Posture Coach
Serious motivation coming your way this week as Lar Brennan, the posture coach joins us in the studio for episode #067 of Paddy Holohan's No Shame Podcast. In November 2013, whilst battling CF & in desperate need of a double lung transplant, Lar Brennan was told by Doctor's that he had less than a week to live. Most people would have accepted their fate a went gently into the night, but this here is no ordinary man. Lar refused to give up & in what is one of the great comeback stories of 2019, battled back from the brink to launch his own gym 'Postural Alignment & Fitness Ireland' in October, 2018. Saddle up for this one, it's an epic rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish that will make you laugh, cry & shout in equal measures but ultimately leave you feeling inspired to smash your Tuesday with a two footed tackle.
Along with being a highly successful personal trainer, Lar is a Posturologist Posture Coach that works closely with pro fighters to improve their eye alignment, posture & overall sharpness. By training both eyes to track correctly, a fighter can massively improve posture, calculation of distance, & make eye muscles stronger which means glycogen will not deplete as quick giving the athlete much more energy. Lar has worked with many SBG fighters including Lee Hammond, Brian Moore & Cian Cowley along with iconic wrestling coach, Sergey Pikulskiy. The postural alignment would have been a fascinating podcast in it's own right, but the real story is the man himself, Lar Brennan.
Also on the podcast Lar talks about his incredibly difficult experiences recovering from a double lung transplant, how he's eternally grateful to his organ donor & his organ donor's family for saving his life, along with all of the medical staff from cleaner to doctor in every hospital he's ever been in from childhood to now that cared for him so well when he needed it most. Lar discusses the close bond he has with his organ donor's family & how it makes him even more determined to help as many people as he can during his time here on this earth.
This is an extremely profound discussion on the power of the mind & how an unbreakable spirit is equally as valuable, if not more, than life saving medication. Paddy started this podcast to give a platform to people like Lar, real genuine people that use their experiences to help those in desperate need.
On a Tuesday full of political & geographical uncertainty, the most important story of the day is without question episode #067 of Paddy Holohan's No Shame Podcast. Let's face it who doesn't need a distraction from all of this Brexit shite & no better men to give you that kickstart than Lar Brennan & Paddy Holohan, No Shame.
