    A couple of years ago someone on this forum posted marius pudzianowskis routine. As I recall there was a lot of high rep shit. Anyway I tried to do a search for it and i couldnt find it. If anyone can find that and post it I would be thankful.

    Mariusz Pudzianowski's Sample Training Cycle

    As one of only a handful of Strongmen, Mariusz trains twice a day, five days a week. Below you'll find a sample workout routine as well as the loads used for various exercises.
    Warning! This is a very demanding schedule even for Mariusz's closest friends and fellow Polish strongmen. Dear reader, if your aspiration is to become a strongman, remember that Rome wasn't built in a day. Train with utmost intensity, but know your limits. (...)

    These are just excerpts of Mariusz's training program. Each of his training sessions is precluded by 15-min of skipping rope (of course, he used to be a boxer). He finishes every workout with abdominal work. On top of all this, there is twice-a-week karate practice and recovery work which includes swimming. (...). You can also find Mariusz doing his medium-distance runs.

    I don't think he's on steroids. Mariusz is naturally strong, he could bench 160kg when 16 yo, when 18 205kg

    I believe he was in trouble for roids in the past, and if that's the case he's probably still using them.

    If you somehow could prove that he is clean I would be willing to be a sexslave for Jabba the Hut for a week. I have never seen a more clear cut case of a user.

    Of course he's naturally strong. He wouldn't be WSM 3 times over if he wasn't. But that doesn't mean he doesn't use steroids.

    No matter who the strongest is, people will always accuse him of cheating.

    on that level, you often find that you need to "cheat" to succeed. I mean is it really cheating if everyone is doing it and the authorities are turning a blind eye?

    If Mariusz is'nt on steroids then I am very, very scared. That guy must be a walking pharmacy or a genetic freak of epic proportions.

    Still a guy his size doing sets of 15 for pullups is frankly amazing.
