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.

    You can't cut and paste that information from his website.

    Although I'm sure he takes loads of gear, I don't understand why every thread about Mariusz turns to talk of drugs.

    Surely, just because he has a good relative physique doesn't mean he takes more gear than the other competitors?

    Awesome workload, brilliant fitness and recovery to maintain that training. The guy is better to see in the flesh than on TV, he really is an athlete.
    One thing about the figures puzzles me a little though, his weights on the big 3. They are huge weights, and I'm not disputing his power, but this is the guy named (until recently) as the worlds 'strongest' man. Is it just me or do they seem a bit low for someone with that title compared to other guys out there?

    I can see what you mean, however a 616lb squat for 2 olympic style with only knee wraps and a belt is huge.

    Especially when you consider he isn't actually training for powertlifting! I'm sure if he was he could get those numbers up even more.

    Am i being stupid, or does Ronnie Coleman lift more?

    He squats 360k for 2, benches 220k for 5, and deads about 360k for a couple, at least in his DVDs anyway.

    Maybe Ronnie should train for Strongman???

    Yea,but wat u must realise is that strongman in this day and age is about mobility not just strength,I think ronnie would have to loose some mass before even thinking about strongman and that would proberly mean loss of strength.

    Its huge mate, but not 'worlds strongest' tackle. A 280 squat (no wraps, no belt) is being blitzed by OLers weighing 10 stone. At super heavy Reza zadeh, Shane hammond etc, all knocking out 400-450K. And then theres the PL's.
    As I said I'm a great admirer of the Pud, he is a brilliant example of strongman, but these weights dont ring true.
    I guess it comes back to the question of what is the worlds strongest person?

    Indeed. From the accounts I've read from people who've encountered him, Coleman has considerable trouble just heaving his own bulk around on a day to day basis. In his current bodybuilder condition he'd be a laughing stock at Strongman.

    He squats 360k for 2

    1. He was wearing a suit
    2. His squats weren't even to parallel

    If that is even his proper routine, I'm sure he's putting the most effort into the event stuff. He's a strongman, not a powerlifter.

    BTW, Ronnie would probably collapse and die if he had to do the farmers walk or something...

    Thats another way of looking at this. Personally I feel sure he can do a lot more than these weights, even for training purposes.
    These guys are always putting out false info to throw other competitors. Thats the game.

    HEy fellas, does anyone know where to get Mariusz's DVD.

    I know it was supposed to come out in english but could never find it. I cant even find the polish version now.

    Any help would be appreciated.
