Released on Oct 11, 2017

Want to gain more muscle?  Bodybuilders can show you the path.  Want to gain strength?  Powerlifters will show you the way.  Want both?  Talk to Stan Efferding.  

IFBB Pro bodybuilder Stan Efferding holds the all-time raw world powerlifting records in the 275-pound-class and is often referred to as the "world's strongest bodybuilder".   Best lifts include: 606 raw bench, 865 squat w/ wraps and an 837 deadlift.  Truly impressive!!!

It's no accident that Stan is jacked, lean and incredibly strong.  He's dialed in his training and nutrition with decades of consistent focus, intense study and a lot of trial and error.  

In this episode Stan talks about:

  • How training for hypertrophy is massively helpful for getting stronger
  • How training heavy (1RMs) doesn’t always mean you’ll get grow larger muscles
  • How he programs when focusing on staying healthy (lookin good and feelin good)
  • How he utilizes movement to speed recovery
  • Why he uses conditioning tools like 20 rep squats and 500 lb weighted carries
  • Why he eats the same few simple foods almost every day to build maximum muscle
  • How to make consistent progress without “overloading your system”

If you want be lean, muscular and very, very strong then sit back and learn from the master, "The Rhino", the strongest bodybuilding in the world; Stan Efferding.  

Train smart,

Mike and Doug
