Meet Brandon Smitley, 31 years old from Terre Haute, IN.
“For years I was training out of my garage to be the best powerlifter I could be. This heavy rotation was about 6-7 hours a week of training, so it had to last the test of time, but always be able to keep my going on the hardest days (it's not always easy to go out and train in your garage solo).”
I've got a few. I really like Eminem for rap, NF has had a good influence on me as of late. When I'm not training, my favorite band is Oasis.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
The Beatles or Hendrix
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
Oasis in Chicago
Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?
Used the play percussion and the drum set until I was about 17
Do you have a life slogan?
Never really thought of this. My gym/business's slogan is "Building Better People Through Strength". That sums me up pretty well.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
Not a country fan, so just about anything of that.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Lyrics. I listen to a wide variety of genres, not only when I train but when I drive. The connection I make lyrically is what keeps me interested in a song for years.
