Mike O'Hearn's Power Bodybuilding
12 Week Training Program

You'll have to excuse me for thinking I'm a superhero. But I rip it up in the gym, and have for years. I destroy the weights. It's not the other way around.

People have often wondered: How could Mike O'Hearn have THAT physique - the one that's been on more fitness magazine covers than any man in history - and be THAT strong?

Here's how:

Your Mission From Mike O'Hearn

The answer lies in my Power Bodybuilding workouts, a program outlined here for the first time ever. The foundation is the three crazy-ass, heavier-than-hell power-lifts: bench press, deadlift, and squat. Those are surrounded by bodybuilding moves. The result is a body that's not only show-and-go but also show-and-dominate, superhero style.

Twelve weeks. That's all I ask for. In return, bodybuilders will receive more muscle than ever, strength athletes will receive more power than ever, and athletes will receive all of the above.

But all of you must prepare to go heavy, heavy, heavy. We're talking superhero heavy. Got it?

Don't be me. Be better than me.

Signed,
Superman

You've got 5 workouts, once each day, along with cardio depending on where you are in the program, then you get two days off.

Sounds fun, doesn't it?? and you get two days of rest at the end to boot

To each their own, Mrweakling. However curls and tricep work have their place in the vast majority of the programs worldwide. To refer to it as "gay shit" is pretty closed minded, and this community is very much about respect. Not trying to bust your balls, but maybe be a little more considerate?

4 weeks in, pretty much doubled my strength with the powerlifting already. This program is awesome. Follow the diet and hit the cardio, you'll be cut and rock hard in no time. I believe it! AWESOME PROGRAM!

Did yo really begin with 70% of 1RM for 4 reps or did you 90%1RM or so? How often did you increase weight in the exercises? did you go into muscle failure?

the routine is written for lifting in the am and cardio pm. Will flipping when the two are done slow my progress?

Not at all, I usually do my runs in the morning and lift in the evening. Just if you take supplements, adjust for the different timing and you shouldn't notice a difference. The only thing I would suggest is to not tear your abs down too hard early in the day as you will require those to stabilize your upper body during the heavy lifts. Hope that helps!
