Throughout human history, a man's body told the story of how he spent his days, and what he did to survive. It was shaped by his surroundings, his needs, and his accomplishments.
You may have never met an ancient warrior, a nomadic hunter, or a laborer from the industrial revolution. But his story is still your story.
The men of the past hunted. Fought. Worked. Built. Muscle was their armor. It channeled his power through metal and stone. It was how he built his life, and protected everyone else's.

Today, a man's body still tells a story—of a choice. Does he take inspiration from those who came before him, or wither before their challenge? Does he believe greatness is a thing of the past, or something that is still available to him?
You, the modern man, can choose to do nothing. You can let yourself be shaped. Or you can shape yourself and be strong, defined, athletic, aesthetic.
A man's body says who he dreams of being, and what he's willing to do to make it happen. Define yourself. This is the Modern Physique.
Make your history
What is the modern physique? Looking back at history, people didn't train like we do today. There weren't gyms to train in. Throughout most of history, people had physiques that were based around the jobs they had. It's only been recently, in the last 100 years or less, that we've been able to choose what type of physique we want to have.
Today, people are more physique-conscious than ever. If you walk into any gym, it's probably full. There are people doing biceps curls, people doing leg extensions, people working every type of muscle to its breaking point. Really, what they care about is their physical appearance. And that's not bad. But there are more reasons to get to the gym.
There's mobility. There's strength. There's power. There are multiple facets that need to go into a training program for it to be well developed. These layers of fitness are what set the modern physique apart.
The Pillars of the Modern Physique
In this program, I'm providing you with eight weeks of training, nutrition, and supplement guidance. Your dedication to this program will take you from where you are now to that modern physique we all want.
I've developed this program so that each person will create a modern physique through eight pillars. They are:
- Symmetry: This is similar to aesthetics. How balanced are you? Is your physique one-dimensional, or impressive from all angles?
- Strength: Can you move a heavy weight safely, or do you just look the part?
- Power: Can you make your muscles work together and express their strength quickly?
- Flexibility/mobility: Are you a functional human being, or are you basically a muscular mannequin?
- Endurance: Can you last in your workouts, sport, or life, or do you end up on the floor?
- Muscularity: Have you put in your time to build quality mass? Do you have shape, or just size?
- Definition: Are you lean enough to show that your diet is on par with your training?
- Athleticism: Does your hard work in the gym carry over to other activities you care about?
I know these pillars work, because I use them in my own training. They've helped me build physique I have today. Each Sunday during the program, I'll explain how the program will help you build one of these pillars.
I'm so excited about this trainer because it provides the opportunity to train in more than one method. You're not just doing hypertrophy work. You're not just training for strength. It's about being a complete modern man, using what we know about training and nutrition to be better in all forms of fitness.
If you follow this program, supplement smart, and eat right, you'll be stronger, you'll be more explosive, you'll have better symmetry and shape, you'll be more muscular, you'll have better definition, and you'll be an overall better athlete.
