Marisa Inda is the current All-Time All Record Powerlifting Champion at 114 lb (all ages, all divisions)!

Her best powerlifting meet numbers are:

Squat 330 lb. | Bench 209 lb. | Deadlift 413 lb. etc.

Marisa was doing hypertrophy training for 15 years before she stumbled upon a flyer for a powerlifting meet. Without thinking too much, she signed up and competed. She didn’t know the full rules and didn’t even have the legit belt for her first meet. Only afterward her first meet did she start properly eating and training for powerlifting.

Marisa incorporates bodybuilding exercises, such as drop sets and partial rep ranges, into her training by adding it at the end of her powerlifting workouts. She likes to maintain a well-rounded, strong physique and finds these exercises beneficial for her powerlifting lifts.

She's a world record holder in the total (all 3 lifts combined) and has much to teach you about how to be very, very strong!

Enjoy!

Chad Wesley Smith is the owner/founder of Juggernaut Training Systems and one of the most accomplished strength athletes of recent years. With a background in track and field, Smith took his 2 collegiate national championships and continued his success in powerlifting and strongman.

Today we discuss Chad’s 7 Scientific Principles of Strength Training

1. Specificity — Training designed to achieve a particular outcome

2. Overload — Is training stimulating enough to drive neural adaptation? Training must become harder overtime through more volume and more weight.

3. Fatigue management — Your recovery process: Besides deload days and proper nutrition and sleep, should include adaptive recovery strategies like ice baths, massages, etc.

4. SRA (Stimulus Recovery Adaptation) — Your training process: Frequency and duration of training and recovery.

5. Variation — Avoid staleness by shifting phases. Keep in mind variation should always be in context with Specificity (principle #1).

6. Phase potentiation — Make the most of each training phase.

7. Individual differences — We're similar but not "the same"

Enjoy!

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!

Derrick Johnson has won 6 senior national titles, 8 American Open titles and is a world team member (scoring the most points of any athlete in over 10 years for United States at the 2014 World Championships).  

Bursting with passion for the sport, with decades of knowledge to share, Derrick one hell of an athlete and may be an even better coach (the youngest Level 5 Senior International Coach in history and has coached weightlifters for the Olympics).

Competing in weightlifting for over 20 years, Derrick is the American record holder for both the snatch (double bodyweight!) and the total in the 62 kg class.  

He's as legit a weightlifter as you can get, enjoy the show!
