KM, I dont know if you adjust your training specifically for powerlifting cos I know you do the strongman bit as well. But Im sure you must know gorillas who’s sole objective is simply to kill the biggest weights in the squat, bench and deadlift and nothing more, and I suspect these would be the biggest and strongest fuckers you know.

Put it this way, Im a firm believer in the philosophy that if you focus on getting stronger rather than brining out your ‘biceps peak’, the rest will (for the most part) take care of itself, which is what these guys seem to be about.

So what has the powerlifting expereince taught you? Do you think if you started training in this fashion (I’m assuming more sets, less reps, big weights) years ago you would be bigger and stronger than you are today?
