Action Bronson talks with Joe Rogan about his journey to losing 130lbs.
Losing weight can be be simple. That is, if you have the right mindset. Having the proper mindset is the one thing that will get you achieve anything you want. That’s exactly what Action Bronson has grown to understand. The rapper breaks down his 130lb weight loss journey on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
Action Bronson delved into a bit of his history, explaining to Rogan how he’s battled with weight issues throughout his life.
“It was a long time coming,” said Action Bronson. “I’m happy that it happened now, because if it didn’t happen it would have been something else. I would’ve been in the grave or somewhere else. Who knows where they would’ve put me.
“I’ve been fat my whole life. I’ve been thinking about losing weight for a long time, for probably about 30 years… (I was about) 380-something. It was despicable. I didn’t look it though, I looked about 350. A fucking round ball, a meatball. I was a meatball.”
A Change in Mindset
The rapper went on to explain how a combination of his wife and the pandemic helped to shift his perspective and mindset that led him to his fitness journey.
“You have to shame me,” said Action Bronson. “I was shamed into this for sure… I started losing weight by myself, in my house, literally during the pandemic just eating different.
“My wife, she was shaming me. The issue was we have a brand new child. She was like ‘The f—k you doing? You want to be around here for our baby? Do you want to take yourself away from us?’ and that s—t hit, it hit hard.
“Not only that, but I love life,” he continued. “There’s no doubt about it. I’ve been going so fast for the past ten years that I haven’t really enjoyed myself.
“So this forced stoppage (from the pandemic) allowed me to really reassess my happiness, and I’ve regained everything. It’s not just fucking work, work, work, next thing, next thing, next thing.”
Action Bronson also did a training session with Joe Rogan. A clip of the training was posted to Instagram showcasing the two plus coach John Wolf exercising with kettlebells.
