Today's episode is a something unique.  Today we look at Hollywood and what's it's like to get in shape for the big screen.  

Brandon Routh is a Hollywood actor who currently plays The Atom in the TV show DC's Legend's of Tomorrow on Netflix. Brandon is best known for playing Superman in the movie Superman Returns (2006).

Yup, he's a superhero.  

In this episode we discuss the kind of training and nutrition he used to get in shape to portray a character who has seemingly unlimited physical strength.  

Hope you enjoy!

Mike and Doug

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

This was one of the most enjoyable shows we’ve done all year.   Really, really enjoyed speaking with Dr. Scott Lynn.

He earned a PhD in Biomechanics and is now an associate professor of Kinesiology/Biomechanics at Cal State Fullerton.  Loosely put, biomechanics is the study of how forces effect your body (stress —> adaptation) as well as how the forces produced by your body effect the world (moving yourself and objects… in our case heavy barbells).

Want to know how front squats are different than back squats?  Is there a difference in muscular activation?  Is there a difference in the stresses on the hips, knees and lower back?  Scott has you covered.  Collecting, analyzing and interpreting this kind of data is exactly what biomechanists do on a daily basis (often using cool things like 3D motion capture systems like the ones used to make video games and animated movie characters).

In this episode Dr. Lynn teaches us:

  • Why scoring well on a movement screen could actually make you MORE likely to get hurt
  • How you can use “movement variability” to stay healthy and minimize injury
  • Why your lower back isn’t designed to “move under load” and how to avoid lower back pain
  • How he tests muscular activation in his laboratory

Enjoy!
