The Juggernaut Method Interrogatory with Chad Wesley Smith

For the last 8 weeks I have been following Chad Wesley Smith‘s Juggernaut Method. I purchased this eBook from Needless to say, The Juggernaut Method kicks some serious ass. This is the exact program Chad used to squat 800 lbs raw in his FIRST powerlifting meet!

The system Chad utilizes in the Juggernaut Method is a unique combination of Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1, Doug Young’s method and Block Periodization.

One of my favorite parts of the book is how Chad covers jump training, sprint training, Olympic lifting and medicine ball training. Not only does he provide you with the exact exercises he uses for him and his athletes but also how how much volume to do, when to do them and how to implement them all into a training program.

Chad also goes into great detail about the proper way to perform conditioning and how you can implement it into your program.












The Juggernaut Method also includes what assistant lifts to do based on YOUR NEEDS.

All in all, The Juggernaut Method is a great system for someone who wants to pack on some serious muscle and to more importantly increase strength, power, speed, and explosiveness. It will make you an all around better athlete and enhance your athletic performance.

Since I liked Chad’s methods so much, I asked him to do an audio interrogatory for my website. Sit back, relax, grab a protein shake and be prepared to take some serious training notes!

I GUARANTEE you will learn something that you can apply to your training routine, or to the training program of your athletes.

If you are an established strength coach, aspiring strength coach or an athlete looking to learn some of the most effective training methods known to man check out this audio interview.

    I know this is old, just listened to the audio. There was a lot of good, helpful information.

  • Thanks Evan, glad you enjoyed it. Did you see my post on max effort lifts? I answered the question you sent me. Let me know what you think!

  • Evan Gallagher

    Yea. Thanks for getting back to me. Now that I see you aren’t using the “DeFranco/Westside” method with your baseball guys and your using the Juggernaut method it makes sense. Thanks again.

  • Evan,

    More than anything we utilize Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1. For some advanced athletes we will use more variety or more of a DeFranco/Westside method. It varies from athlete to athlete depending on their needs etc…

    The important thing to know is that there is no right way of doing things. They are all great ways to train. Just because I use the principle of specificity for most athletes, that doesn’t mean I don’t use more variety for others.

    Email me any other questions you have!
