Marius Pudzianowski

Just watching some training footage of Marius Pudzianowski. What a beast. I believe he is the current Metrx WSM winner. Notice for his size how nibble he is when skipping rope. He is also fairly flexible for his size. Impressive to say the least.

Both links are WFS.

Re: Marius Pudzianowski

He's a beast definitely. Probably one of the favorites for every WSM. His training regimes are pretty awesome and it's good that he's kept up his nimble-ness as well as flexibility -- I bet it helps him A LOT.

He did have a run in with a steroids thing in 2004 I believe.. so I dunno how clean he is/had been.

yeah, there's a good reason why he's won the WSM four times, especially at his BW...he outlifts guys who weigh 50-60lbs more than him.

A friend of mine who follows him pretty closely told me he was banned for a while because he was disregarding his own health with steroid use (using at crazy levels).

If you've never been to his website and looked at his routine it's an interesting read. Powerlifting in the AM with strongman lifts in the afternoon on the same day. Yes he is on roids as most men are at that level, but that alone will not get you to where he is. I've seen him in person and he looks amazing.

Re: Marius Pudzianowski

Ya really got to take a lot of drugs to get caught by the sport of Strongman, given that it's one of the most lax sports there are and one of the most obvious for athletes to be "on". It's difficult to believe that a top strength athlete competing as a superheavy could get that big AND that lean without chemical assistance. (Compare his physique to Phil Pfister, for example.) So I'm gonna pretty much ignore any kind of training routine Pudzianowski may be doing.

Re: Marius Pudzianowski

his agility and flexibility may be related to his blackbelt and long time training in Karate as well.

Ah jeez, he wears a belt! That explains his weak core.
