My bruddah Jim Wendler is a strong mofo, no 2 ways about it.
I interviewed him for The Underground Strength System and he unleashed info that will transform any weakling into a Beast - ONLY if they put in the work.
I NEVER said getting stronger and adding muscle was easy, it's NOT.
By the videos below, you can tell Jim KNOWS how to develop a program that builds strength.
After you watch the videos, check out what Jim and I spoke about regarding the development of strength and some old school strength secrets.
Jim and I spoke about how Robby Robinson used to train, and Robby reported that his favorite and most result producing exercises were the following:
- power cleans
- sprints in the sand
Can we argue with Robby Robinson, The Black Prince?
I can't say that I can argue with Jim either, the dude KNOWS strength inside and out.
Jim and I chatted about training hard with the basic core lifts only 2 - 3 x week, and on other days rocking out some Black Prince training, tons of ring push ups, dips, pull ups and sprints or prowler pushing.
These workouts will slap muscle on your entire body in addition to improving your conditioning.
If you can sprint hills or sprint the prowler for repeated sets you will have powerhouse legs and high octane conditioning.
Try supersetting 10 sets of mixed grip chins and dips non stop. Your lats will be on fire even when you're cranking away on the dips.
In a nut shell, you GOTTA be strong. Strength is your foundation. There is no such thing as a weak dude who is explosive and highly conditioned.
Get stronger and you will:
- pack on muscle
- improve conditioning
- be mentally tougher
Let the foundation begin Bruddahs.

Awesome post Zach!!!
J.W is a pure BEAST! Throwing that 225 mil. press around like it’s an empty bar! Impressive shizza.
People (including myself) definitely over-think their training…stick to the basics like you mention in this article and BAM!
Question: the 10 sets of chins and dips, is that 10 of each? That’ll hurt for sure!
couldn’t agree more with strength being the foundation
jaja the other day i actually supperseted non-stop pullups with dips…and sure as hell my lats and tris were burning, wohh that was brutal, i love it
its a shame that not many people do bodyweight too much, if only they knew the wonders of it!
hey zach i have always wondered about your nutrition, what do you tipically eat in a day?
keep killin it Zach!
great post coach!
I read also about robbys training in Dan Johns book “never let go”. robbys blog (http://robbyrobinson.blogspot.com) is also a good read!
I am also a proponent of doing key exercises like squats and cleans 2 maybe 3 times a week, and on the other days if you have enough gas in the tank, do important things like chins, dips, sprints.
hey bro, yes 10 sets of each!
i did this workout 2 x this week already
i try not to do the dips all the time though as they can wreak havoc on my shoulders, rings dips feel better on my shoulders and the ring push ups give me the full range of motion
this is not an easy workout!
nice question bruddah, i’ll have to do a post on my nutrition.
for the most part, it is higher in protein, lower in carbs, lots of fruits and veggies
i’ll get a full day for you bruddah!
Dan John’s latest book is awesome!
Laree Draper sent me his latest DVD I gotta watch it!
That guy is legend baby!
Another awesome post. That guy is a beast. It is awesome to see people making impressive lifts. Thanks for the inspiration.
