On the training front, let's talk about how to
build Herculean development.
42 years ago, Bradley J. Steiner wrote a great
little book with one of the best titles in the
history of the world:
"Powerlifting and the Development of Herculean
Nice title, huh?
In the book, Steiner focused on building four key
3. Shoulder girdle
The theory was, if you built plenty of strength and
muscle mass in those four key areas, you'd end up
with plenty of strength and muscle mass from head
And it's a valid theory. It works. By focusing on these
four critical areas, you build maximum strength and
muscle throughout the entire body.
And here's another tip. Or rather, three of them:
1. Power rack training
2. Rest-pause training
3. Heavy singles
Why do these help build Herculean super-strength?
Because they let you train with HEAVY WEIGHTS.
And make no mistake about it -- heavy weights are
what it takes to build Herculean super-strength.
That was true 42 years ago - and it's still true today.
And it will always be true.
Today, tomorrow, and forever.
As always, thanks for reading and have a great day.
If you train today, make it a good one!
Yours in strength,
