Jesse Kellum is the strongest competitor that has ever competed in the IPF World Masters Championship, breaking 10 world class records he stands alone in the powerlifting world. But as bodybuilders say it's all in the genes you're given, Jesse's father was also a competitive powerlifter and did very well competing internationally.

Jesse Kellum is known for his high intensity training and his 10 world powerlifting championship records tell us that whatever training he does really works. When you can push 800 lbs on an equipped bench-press and do 500+ raw bench-press plus a 1000lb squat, we can see it works very well.

Jesse is an innovator and has already established himself in the powerlifting community with his board press and his floor press training. Many powerlifters now include both these movements in their training routine. It has never been shown to be useful in the past but Jesse has changed that.

The way that he trains might seem closer to the way a bodybuilder trains when you consider the volume that he uses. Although Jesse would start his workouts with heavy singles just like any powerlifter, he would finish with high reps of sometimes 12 or even 15 reps.

Watching Jesse train when he is doing bench-press or deadlift is fascinating because of the reps this man can squeeze out, but if you really want to see why he is so strong you need to watch him do a leg workout. From box jumps to sprint work outside the gym is completely mind-blowing.

This 220lb man can jump up explosively like a gymnast and when asked how he does that, his answer is ‘practice’. When Jesse starts his leg workout he would start doing multiple sets of sprints only with his bodyweight. After 10 sets he would then do sled dragging, both forward and backwards.

Physiologically it makes sense to train slow and fast twitch muscle fibers in the same workout. Although most powerlifters do not even consider this option, it needs to be kept in mind when any top powerlifter trains so that he/she can get the best return from a gut wrenching workout.
