  About Me

Hey, first, thank you for joining this program! I really appreciate the support; I want to reach as many people as possible, so if you find this helpful, please share it! And if you have any questions or feedback, I’d love to hear from you.

You can contact me at ben@phdeadlift.com – but please, read complete the course and watch ALL the lectures before you blow up my inbox.

If you don’t know me: my name is Ben Pollack, and I’m a professional powerlifter with a Ph.D. in the history of strength sports and fitness from the University of Texas. I am the 2017 US Open champion, hold the all-time world record total in the 198-pound class, am ranked #3 in the 181 pound class, and have won all three major raw meets in the US (the Open, Boss of Bosses, and Reebok Record Breakers). I’ve been lifting since high school, started competing in 2012, I’m 5’8” and my offseason weight is 215. I’m sponsored by Elitefts, Iron Rebel, and Granite Supplements.

Now that we’re all introduced, we can get started.
