Fred Hatfield Training Video

This is the heavy iron video. It popped up in my feed yesterday. I did a quick search and didn’t see it posted in the forums. I hate it if I’m beating a dead horse here but dr squat was so ahead of his time. If you actually watch the videos and the programming it’s simply amazing. He talks about mass training, strength, CAT and peaking including plyometrics.

Anyways I just wanted to share these. The video quality reminds me of the show A-team also. Keep waiting for Mr T to kick the door in.


My uncle gave me his copy of Power: A Scientific Approach when I was a teenager. I think the book came out in the early 80s. Fred was an entertaining writer. Later I read some of the Westside material, and thought it borrowed heavily from Fred’s work.

My uncle gave me that book, and big arms in 6 weeks by Darden. I wanted the big arms, so I read that. It was much later that I read Hatfield, and was impressed.

Also, if I am not mistaken, Fred invented the SSB bar.
