One of the great innovators in modern training, Charles R. Poliquin has helped numerous pro athletes and bodybuilders, as well as Olympic medalists in over a dozen sports, reach their full potential. Along the way, he also helped popularize the German volume training (GVT) protocol, thick-bar training, and many other tried-and-true training, nutrition, and supplementation techniques.
An accomplished author, Poliquin has written for several publications and websites, including Muscle Media 2000, Bodybuilding.com, Iron Man, Huffington Post, Flex, Muscular Development, T-Nation, Muscle and Fitness, and Sports Review, and has produced many manuals for his international training certifications and several books. His works have been translated into 24 different languages.
