Becoming a Brick Shit House 201

Share This:

A few weeks ago I interviewed Pat Davidson during the re-release of his stellar training system, MASS. It’s one of the most effective (and brutal) training programs out there that makes people into beasts, and I have yet to come across anyone who hasn’t gotten amazing results if they happened to survive…;O)


Pat’s kinda intense. But also one of the smartest and most well-read coaches out there. When I asked him to do an interview originally I had an inkling he was going to go off, but had no idea he was going to go off as much as he did.

His interview included one of the best rants ever. It was also one of the most read interviews ever on this site. What can I say: people love rants. You can check it out HERE.

I wasn’t able to squeeze all of what Pat had to say into one piece, so I decided to omit a section to keep in my back pocket for a later date.1


Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
  1. Read: I wasn’t in the mood to write anything today. Thanks Pat!

  2. OMG, yes! I remember when I first saw the trailer at the theater and seeing the 1s clip of him running with a mask on. I was like “fuuuuuuuuuck that.” For those interested on why those stupid, Bane looking masks you see people wear at the gym are a complete waste of time, go HERE.

    I’m glad you released the 2nd half of the interview. Another epic rant, indeed. What resources would you suggest for PRI?

  • Megann

    What? Rocky IV is clearly the best one.

  • The overtraining point is gold. Most people don’t overtrain, they under eat, under sleep, under recover for their overall stress load. Of which training load is a fraction.
    1,4,3,2, then the rest.

    dead on on crossfit. It’s such an ill defined blob that it is easy to have literally any opinion on it.. and it makes it easy to defend (“Not my box! We do.. XYZ”)

    Great interview. Rocky for me has to I, IV, III, II, Balboa, V, Creed. Even the small amount of PRI info and drills I’ve gathered and used with my clients has been a game changer, and I still can’t believe how deep that rabbit hole goes

  • Thanks for the post

    can you please tell me is does kyphosis causes any breathing problem.

    Who cares about Rocky? It’s a freaking movie! How about idolizing actual boxers (and not fictional characters)? …and of course, he would hate Creed (hmmm…I wonder why). ?

      Who said anything about idolizing? Relax, it’s a blog.
