Gymchat 217 - Underground Strength Training (Zach Even-Esh)

If it works, it works.


When it comes to a no-nonsense training approach, it's fair to sat that Zach Even-Esh walks the walk. His Underground Strength Gym is filled with ropes, sleds and thick-handled equipment of all types. An incredible place.

This week we're discussing this 'Underground Strength' approach to training. Why he does what he does, what works and how to incorporate these ideas into your own training.

Joining Zach is Strongman & Personal Trainer Josh Hewett - also a huge proponent of the no-nonsense training approach. If you've got questions for Zach & Josh, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat (during the discussion itself). Details below.

Whether it's for strength, competition or aesthetics, how do you go about packing on a serious amount of muscle mass? Is it just a matter of 'eating everything in sight' and training hard?

Look forward to hearing from you.
