My hope is that my coaching log will help you by:
- Showing the benefits of high intensity/low volume training that I’ve followed injury free for over 20 years which has developed into the The Minimalist/M2 Raw Training Method and the The M2 Equipped Training Ebook
- Teaching through the experiences of my training partners and I.
- Helping to show how to overcome adversity, regardless of what it may be.
- Demonstrating the equipment I’ve designed to help benefit lifters such as yourself.
I have been competitively powerlifting for over 20 years. Within that time I have competed raw, single ply and multi ply. I hold the highest all time total of 1930 at 148, the third highest total of 2045 at 165 and have broken over 35 world records, over 25 of which I still hold. Through the years in this sport I have learned a great deal from various training methods, met and formed long lasting friends, as well as learned the importance of balancing life, work, and training.

Elitefts accepted me as a team member over twelve years ago and I am currently the longest standing still competing powerlifter on the site. I appreciate Dave Tate and Elitefts for giving me the opportunity to learn from and teach others through the Q&A and my training log.
In 2005 I opened Orlando Barbell – a 24 hour powerlifting friendly gym. As well as running Orlando Barbell I designed and sell the Home GHR , the The OBB Power Handles and the Doorway Home Gym, wrote the 12 Weeks to a Bigger Bench EBook, and produced the 12Weeks to a Bigger Bench DVD.
My latest contribution was writing the M2 Method EBook, designed to be the quintessential Raw Powerlifting training manual for beginners to advanced lifters looking to get stronger and prevent injury while incorporating the powerlifts.

Well, I thought my joints were feeling better, but they proved otherwise when I tried to bench yesterday. My shoulders hurt so bad that I had to stop which is why I just did bis and tris today. Unfortunately this isn’t even a pain that I can push through, it’s debilitating. Hopefully things will continue to improve.

I’ve figured myself out well enough to know that I’m not going to do cardio on a regular basis, so we opted for some sprints instead. These are easy enough to do without having to set anything up. I really need to start incorporating these, or some form of GPP, more often.
