WATCH: Bench Press and The Seven Granddaddy Laws

TAGS: Destination Dallas, Built to the Hilt, seminar, Josh Bryant

Some athletes excel purely through natural talent. Some flourish through intelligent programming and meticulous attention to training detail. Josh Bryant has done both — and now he uses his particular combination of intuition and education to build his clients.

Bryant, who started as an in the trenches master, traversed into the academic realm to fully understand the complexities of the human body and uncover how those intricacies can produce superhuman performance. In other words (his own words, in fact), he first discovered how to get results, and then determined why those results occur.

His most recent publication, Built to the Hilt, saw massive success, even in the often-untapped mainstream media. He is the youngest person to ever bench press 600-pounds and to this day coaches record-holding powerlifters.

In further attempts to build the strength community, Bryant filmed and is now freely sharing his most recent seminar: Destination Dallas. We will be sharing these videos with you over the course of the next two weeks.

In the first installment of Destination Dallas, Bryant shares history of the bench press and offers the laws to follow to build strength — including the CAT method.
