Ben Pakulski a.k.a. Pak-Man, is an IFBB professional bodybuilder and winner of the 2008 Mr. Canada competition. In the IFBB, he finished 2nd twice in 2008. He also placed 2nd in the 2013 Arnold Classic competition, and 11th in the 2012 Mr. Olympia contest, which was his first-ever.
Ben began his interest in nutrition at 12 years old, when he read about vegetarianism and experimented with it for two years. At 15, he started lifting weights in Macks Gym in Toronto. Today, he is an accoladed athlete, competitor, coach, and creator of #1 Muscle Building program, MI40.
In this episode Ben Pakulski takes us through his mindset shift as he went from being a high level competitive bodybuilder, to an entrepreneur, and father. He shares with us the story of how he was initially successful in bodybuilding by accident. He also explains how he developed a competitive mindset, why he treated everyday like he was going to be on stage, and more.
